We all know how difficult being a new parent can be. However, being a new parent during a pandemic is a whole different story.
Kate Middleton made a couple’s day as she surprised them to congratulate them on welcoming their new child into the world on a Zoom call.
“This is definitely a first I think,” the Duchess of Cambridge said. “Well, firstly, huge congratulations. Is it a little boy or a little girl?”
When the couple revealed that they had a son, Kate awed and gave her congratulations to the new parents.
In light of the UK’s Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week, Middleton then spoke with midwives, health visitors and leading sector experts about the challenges and impact that COVID-19 is having on new expectant mothers and their families.
The Duchess first spoke to a pair of midwives, asking what the main concerns that mothers and potential mothers are having when it comes to their pregnancies during this pandemic.
“The main issues that the women are having at the moment really are around coming into the hospital and worried about catching COVID but also about isolation after the baby is born,” the midwife responded.
She then got an inside look of how hospital looks right now, and finished off her call with a group of sector experts, discussing the importance of mental health in new parents.

Teachers across the UK are dedicating their time to keeping schools open for the children of key workers and vulnerable children. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge called teachers and school staff at Casterton Primary Academy to thank them for their hard work and dedication – and to wish the children a very Happy Easter ? @_place2be
This isn’t the first time Kate has been on Zoom in recent weeks. Much like us, she has been taking advantage of the program, as her and prince William recently spoke with teachers and students who are adjusting to learning remotely. Adorable, right
