For the second year running, many of us have been celebrating the arrival of our 'lockdown babies.'

This time last year, even as we were staring down the nose of another lockdown, families in Suffolk were welcoming their newest members, unsure of when restrictions would allow them to introduce their new-borns to their families.

It's been a difficult and isolating time to be a new parent, as many have had to learn to care for their baby without a support network of friends and families around them.

Indeed, many new dads and parents have held their children for the first time while wearing face masks.

Other family members have made do with being virtually introduced to grandchildren, nieces and nephews, through Zoom and Facetime, eagerly waiting for the time when they can hold them in their arms for real.

Baby groups too, which are so vital for new parents' mental health, allowing them to form bonds with others in their situation and share their worries and concerns, have been inaccessible.

Many have also feared that their children have been impacted from this lack of socialisation.
