The nice gesture of a midwife for a grandfather to meet his newborn grandson through the window

The pandemic has changed many things, and one of them is that visits to newborn babies have been suspended, leaving only parents to remain in the hospital with them.

This led to surreal encounters of grandparents and grandchildren through the glass of a window or the car window. With the desire that a grandfather has to meet and hug a grandson who has just arrived in the world!

This happened on March 31, when 19-year-old young mother Emily Schoenstein gave birth to her son Victor in a New Jersey hospital. Since no one could visit them, the midwife had the nice gesture of showing the newborn to the mother’s little sister, Molly, and her father Todd, who were waiting in the parking lot to meet the baby through the window .

Hospital protocols do not allow going to visit newborns to avoid contagion, and it is a measure that is preferable to maintain when we return home with the baby , until the situation is more controlled.

If you do, take care of all safety measures such as hand washing, mask and distance, and avoid kissing, both due to Covid and any infection that could seriously affect the baby.

Let’s think that all this will pass, that there is less left to return to normality, and that grandparents will be able to return very soon to hug their newborn grandchildren for the first time .

Touch is a very powerful connection with your baby: this is how you can...

As mothers - especially when we are first-timers - and we want to do what is best for the baby, we simply have to go with our instincts. I say this as someone who started motherhood having read a lot about it, but to whom time has taught precisely that.

When your family doesn't like the name you've chosen for your baby (and over...

One of the most transcendental decisions that are made in the incipient role of father and mother, when the baby is still in the womb, is deciding the name of your son or daughter. Trying to imagine what it will be like, discarding all those that you don't like or that remind you of someone you don't like (because let's not deny it, it's something we all do), and reaching consensus is not an easy job.
