MATERNAL MINDS MATTER
MY SPECIAL LOCK-DOWN BABY
The MMM Project has been created to increase access to opportunities that provides support for new mums, affected by the loss of Maternity Leave due to Coronavirus.
Due to these unprecedented times and strict restrictions put in place, Mums have been forced into isolating circumstances. This has resulted in the support ordinarily provided by health care/ family/ support network, being dramatically reduced and in some cases, is completely non existent. As a result there is an increase in mums experiencing isolation and loneliness, this having a consequential impact on deteriorating mental health and emotional wellbeing.
For some mums, reliance on health visitors or family support is their only connection to the outside world as they do not have any friends with babies or children their age - they are alone.
The Pregnancy journey - The Birth - Post Natal journey are a completely alien experience to the journey of expectant woman pre covid. Creating an emotional rollcoaster for already hormonally inbalanced woman, having to respond to the governments ever changing protocols, alone.
Social media/ internet forums being the source/ tool used to measure how well you are doing. Comparing ones abilities to societal expectations can lead to a breakdown in confidence/ self-esteem and created a term increasingly heard, "mum guilt".
As well as the expected norms experienced such as lack of sleep, being thrust into Isolation and loneliness ultimately effecting body, mind and soul, results in poor mental health low motivation, decreased energy and reduced desire to do activities with their babies - this then leads to worries concerning lack of development in their babies.
Most mums are in a state of grief for all the activities that they should have had as a right of passage. Baby Groups, walks in the park, family visits, cake and coffee with friends and birthday parties with family, friends and children. Time alone shopping, classes, hobbies. They are soon returning to work without any of these activities taking place and being forced to remain alone at home - isolated.
