Last year, รวมสูตรสล็อต Covid rules meant some expectant mothers faced being alone for baby scans, appointments and giving birth. Bristol-based portrait photographer, Nina Raingold, met mothers who have experienced the challenges of giving birth during Covid restrictions in the UK.
Here's what they shared in their own words.
Jo and her daughter Olive
"The hardest part about being pregnant in lockdown was that my husband Pete couldn't come to my appointments or scans, and it's quite scary to do that by yourself.
"We were always a bit worried that one of us would get sick; it put a fog of anxiety over the last trimester.
"Pete couldn't be with me for some of my labour. I had to go into the maternity triage and he wasn't allowed in.
"All the stuff you prepare for labour is with your birth partner; I hadn't planned to do 45 minutes of it in the waiting room on my own!"
Naomi and her son Akirou
"We were in complete lockdown on the day I gave birth.
"It was so quiet getting to the hospital. Looking out of the window, there was nobody on the streets.
"I thought maybe I wanted to give birth at home because of the virus, but they said I had to have the baby in the labour ward.
"The virus was so new and they didn't know what was going to happen.
"They just had the high numbers of deaths from all the other countries. I remember it being a very surreal time.
"So many people were dying every day. To have that on your mind and then to go to hospital where you'll be in contact with so many different people was a scary thought."
