First thing I would say is always have faith in God and be positive. Corona time is very tough for all of us. I delivered a baby girl on 22nd July 2020. Eight days later, on 30th July, I suffered from fever (102). I presumed it to be the aftereffect of delivery, but within the next three days, I experienced headache and weakness. I became worried. So, I decided to go for COVID test.
On the 3rd of Aug 2020, sample for Rt-Pcr was taken. On the 5th of Aug, the report came. Shockingly, I tested COVID positive. My baby, at that time, was just 17 days old. My husband and I both became very nervous. It was frightening and excruciating to think of the baby being infected with the coronavirus.
But the doctors gave us so much strength and support. They gave us that positivity and belief that everything is going to be fine. With this positivity and the doctor’s advice, the baby had to live with my husband alone as he tested negative. I had to feed the baby with proper sanitisation. Every time, I used to put on a mask to feed the baby, and at this hour of grief, we don’t know how, but the baby used to give us a smile reassuring everything will be fine. That gave us a lot of strength to fight this disease.
Ultimately, days passed without developing any symptoms. I remember with each day passing by; we used to get a sense of relief and positivity. Finally, one month passed, and we all were fine. The baby has grown up now, and she keeps us busy all day with her small acts and moments. When we think of that period, we realise that the most important thing that kept us moving was the belief in God and the positive environment. I must say we got a lot of support from everyone. So, do not worry and live happily, no matter what comes your way.
