New pandemic mom
Fri Apr 23 2021
I became a new mom near the start of the pandemic. My family is all essential high risk workers so they can't safely hold my baby except if they take a long break from work. He will be turning 1 in a few months and my siblings, aunts, uncles and grandparents haven't been within 6 feet of him. My mom has held him three times. My partner and I are absolutely exhausted. To add insult to injury, I also have to hear the anti-lockdown protest go by my apartment every week.
