No Woman Should Have To Birth Alone!

My name is Emma and I am currently 34 weeks pregnant with my second child. The COVID-19 virus has caused a lot of stress and concern around the world to everyone’s everyday lives but to a pregnant woman and her family it has caused complete anxiety and distress. As a mother we generally are in control of our environment and enjoying the little things, preparing babies room, nesting, baking, enjoying the last moments of being a family of three but with what is going on in the world right now the joy that I should be filled within me is slowly diminishing. 
The thought of not being able to have my husband in the birthing suite with me to see the arrival of his daughter breaks my heart and not to mention the stress that it would have on the mother and baby to have to do this alone would not be ideal for their health or wellbeing. 
Each day I see worried mothers to be on groups within Facebook asking their communities whether they know any updates on birthing suite restrictions and the stress they are going through with the unknown.
As a nation we are already at breaking point with people’s mental health. Please don’t let this happen!! For Women's rights/ human rights we need to allow a woman to have one support person in the hospital with her to support her.
Thank you for your time.
From a worried mum to be xx
