Read our new report – No one wants to see my baby
In August 2020, our Babies in Lockdown report shared insights into the impact that COVID-19 was having on babies and their parents of all backgrounds from across the UK. That research found that COVID-19 and the lockdown affected parents, babies and the services that support them in diverse ways.
This autumn, we returned to some of the parents who had taken part in the initial research to understand in-depth how the pandemic continues to impact them.
No one wants to see my baby raises concerns that parents are still struggling to access essential services to help them through pregnancy and beyond, with problems including accessing face-to-face medical care, reduced access to health visitors and a lack of accessible community parent and baby groups.
