Anyone feel robbed of their maternity? 😲 covid is awful and I am extremely greatful for health 💯 but a part of me feels sad that I won't be able to have a normal maternity leave. My boy is 3 months and it is flying by

🙋🏼‍♀️ Yep, I feel like by the time everything is completely normal I'll be having to go back to work without doing all the "normal" maternity leave things 😒xx

The thing that really bugs me with it is that I'm on half pay in my maternity package now yet my colleagues are on full pay and not working! I'm so depressed with it all

But that’s what you’d be getting anyways even if there wasn’t COVID

A little but on the other hand feel grateful to have had such quality time with my baby girl, to have my husband around more, and that when I do go back in a few weeks (when she's 6months) I'll be able to work from home, which will ease the transition

I feel exactly the same Had my baby two months ago and went on mat leave with lockdown so have been at home for nearly three months. I’m trying not to think of all the things I had planned like massages pedicures etc but I won’t ever get that time back. It’s hard but we are healthy and tats the main thing. Hopefully he’ll meet my friends and family soon and we can catch up on all swimming classes etc we had planned. Thank god for online shopping because I had not bought a thing !!
