The harsh reality of becoming a new mum in a world with COVID-19

After COVID-19 ripped through the world, taking over three million lives, 2020 was a year when many wishes didn’t happen.

People were isolated, times were scary and uncertain, there was far more negativity than positivity, and I can’t even begin to contemplate the pain suffered by those who lost loved ones during this time.

For those who became a mum for the first time in 2020, the timing wasn’t ideal, and many families struggled when they couldn’t be there to support their loved ones.

New Parents


Australia was obviously lucky to have a little time to learn about the virus before it hit our shores. Yet, despite all the steps we took to try and limit the suffering or loss of lives, our nation was still affected in countless ways.

Many grandparents missed out on welcoming their grandchildren into the world in person. And even over a year later, some have still not had the opportunity to meet their new additions. Parents have been unable to access crucial support from their family, and the walls of houses have become smaller and smaller.

As a mum myself, I understand how difficult this must be. And through With Love Baby Gifts, I’m honoured to help people send new baby gifts to loved ones around the country with a complimentary, heartfelt message.

When people can't be there in person, they can still send a little love and support.

Now, more than ever, I realise how important it is to give to the mums as well as the new babies. It shows our support and offers encouragement in times of stress and need.

I’m determined to make it easy for you to demonstrate your love and support, which means I’m prepared to go above and beyond to help you send a gift with a supporting message through whichever channel works best for you: online, over the phone, or face-to-face in the shop.
