New mum Sylvia Jeffreys who welcomed baby Oscar Hamilton just five weeks ago with husband Peter Stefanovic has extended a lifeline to other anxious mamas navigating new motherhood during the global pandemic.

"While it's a good time to be living in a little 💓 bubble with nowhere to go, I'm conscious of the confusion and anxiety that many new mums might be feeling right now," the television presenter wrote on Instagram. "Mother's groups - a social lifeline for many - have been cancelled, libraries closed, cafes are being avoided."

Sending "love and virtual hugs", to other mums feeling "extra isolated", Jeffreys invited women to connect. "Drop a comment below if you want to connect, chat about reflux, LOL about 💩namis, recommend some binge-worthy series, or share your sleep secrets.

"Let's chat and be kind and stay connected," she wrote. "Big love, from us 💓 #togetherathome

Jeffreys' generous offer has been embraced by other mums, many of whom have gone into lock down as the pandemic sweeps the globe.
"Thank you so much for reaching out," one mum wrote. "I have a 10 week old baby boy and staying home is out best option atm. We do go for daily walks to get fresh air and mum to get some exercise. Hope you are enjoying motherhood just as much as me."
"My partner and I have decided to go in lock down before our induction next week," wrote another. "We don't want to risk him being unable to be in the delivery room after a difficult pregnancy. Certainly not how we envisioned bubs coming into this world and now we need to decide on whether or not grandparents can be a part of this. Praying for all the pregnant and new mummas that they can get through these next few weeks of uncertainty."
