The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way South Africa and the world operates in many ways.

Having a baby should be a positive experience, even during a pandemic, but some parents did not have the ‘traditional’ hospital experience. 

Martin Bester spoke to a few new parents to hear how they experienced having a baby in the house and raising a baby without family visiting or doing activities outside. 

A few parents shared their experiences, including a good friend to Breakfast with Martin Bester, Megan Harrington-Johnson. She is an attorney from HJW in Johannesburg. HJW Attorneys was recognised as one of Africa’s Leading Boutique Law Firms.
