“I’m grateful that I still got to work during the pandemic, that I could help people in that time of need. I’m grateful that we also spent more time as a family on our rest days as we were limited in what we could do and where we could go.”
Q1: What is your story? Please, tell us a bit more about the work you do?
So my name is Grace and I’m a paramedic. I was currently training in my role when I gave birth to my little girl. My little girl is now 2 years old. I work for the NHS as a frontline paramedic and have done for the past year. The job is very challenging but so rewarding.
Q2: What were the main challenges that you & your family faced during the pandemic?
Whilst working during the pandemic, it was hard to have childcare as nurseries and childminders where closing. I had to rely on a family of ‘key workers’ to help around the clock with watching my little girl. The shifts were long, physically and mentally draining but we kept on going.
Q3: What are the things you are most grateful for having been working as a key worker during the pandemic?
I’m grateful that I still got to work during the pandemic, that I could help people in that time of need. I’m grateful that we also spent more time as a family on our rest days as we were limited in what we could do and where we could go.
Q4: Tell us a little bit more about your experience with Newborn Born Story. Would you recommend us to a friend or colleague?
I’ve had previous experiences with Newborn Story Photography as my daughter has been photographed from being a newborn. The service is always amazing and faultless. Nina is so patient with all little ones and captures the most gorgeous stunning photographs. We have beautiful photos framed all around our house that I will treasure forever. Thank you for allowing us to be part of this experience.
