Edwina Bartholomew has written an open letter to mothers in Melbourne, who have had to endure strict lockdown restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Edwina described the situation as “damn difficult” and said it would have been especially difficult for new mothers to “see the rest of the world open up.”
“Many new moms have missed critical support to survive the tumultuous fourth trimester, no mom groups, no real moms coming over, no friends coming over,” she continued.
‘I’ve admired from afar as you all fought through it. I don’t know how you did it, but you did it.

Edwina signed the heartfelt letter, “We greet you. All other mothers’.
