Imagine for a moment a group of mothers with newborn babies potentially infected with COVID-19! These anecdotes chart the trials and tribulations of contacting these highly anxious mothers and the importance of providing empathy and reassurance. Some stories are amusing, whilst others will cause you to shed a tear.
