With the unstable inflammation of Covid-19 sailing across the world, expecting women and recent mothers are devastated with emotions that are inexpressible. Several women are suffering from terror charges with the impression of safeguarding their new born child from this deadly infection that has swept the nation. The feeling of scarcity of beds in the hospitals and inadequacy of other crucial facilities such as nurses and staff members are eating them up from inside. In some trials pregnant women are so nervous that they are considering giving birth at home or a birthing centre as a decent choice over the risks at hospitals. Countries across the world are investigating the best possible precautionary criteria and seizing admirable steps to encounter the surge of coronavirus patients. Many health facilities are left with no option but to crack down on labor laws for women going into labour. Many hospitals have now barred families and doulas from the delivery room.
Amidst this panic situation, a hospital in Thailand is paying tremendous attention to newborn babies by providing them with adorable little face shields. Paolo Hospital in Samut Prakan province of Thailand recently posted adorable pictures of babies in the delivery ward of the hospital all dressed up in Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) “We have extra protection measures for little ones and friends, with a face shield for newborns. So cute!”, the hospital wrote on their Facebook post. “Congratulations to all mothers and dads.” Moreover, the hospital authority is overloaded with fundamental thanks for performing such an outstanding job to protect newborns from the highly contagious disease, “So cute,” wrote one Facebook user, while another said: “Nurses doing a great job.” At the same moment, some people are wondering if the shields are uncomfortable for the little ones. Some offered a perspective saying that babies are too occupied sleeping to realize anything about the huge cover on their faces.
In addition to this, Thailand has imposed a lockdown till April 15 to regulate the sweep of COVID-19. The country has recorded over 2,300 confirmed cases of coronavirus. According to a Guardian report, so far scientists have found no indication that say that mothers who test positive for Covid-19 can disseminate it to their fetuses in-utero. Once the baby is born, the CDC suggests a temporary mother-infant separation for mothers who have COVID-19, and offers guidance on breastfeeding precautions.
