Lockdown Baby

It’s incredible how many of my patients have fallen pregnant during lockdown. Some of which have been trying to get pregnant for years. I’m absolutely thrilled for them.

But, there are many who haven’t. And now the phrase ‘lockdown baby’ is added to the list of insensitive things people say to them. 

5 months of eating well, exercising often, going to bed early. And still, no pregnancy. It’s so unfair. And added to that, the waiting list to be seen by a consultant is now even longer.

Try not to give up hope. All the hard work you’ve put in over the last few months, will not have been wasted. It will be your turn soon and you will have a healthier pregnancy. 

Constantly having to pick yourself every month after disappointment is tough. It’s exhausting. I know this. But you are brave, you are resilient and you will get there. 

If you want to talk, I’m here.
