Women welcoming their little ones in 2020 had to make some serious adjustments to their birth plans.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many dads were not allowed to attend any prenatal appointments or ultrasound scans with their partners. 

Family and friends were also banned from visiting new moms in the hospital.

Despite the challenges, these parents were beaming with joy when their babies finally arrived.
