There are fears that some of Solihull’s newborns will spend their first few months in the wider world due to coronavirus restrictions.
Discussing health priorities this week focused on the potential impact on newborns born just before or during a crisis.

In particular, reference was made to the first 1,001 days, which includes the period of pregnancy, and then to the first two years after delivery.
Claire Annette Mackenzie (Con, Shirley East) said she was concerned that those who came to the world in crisis were growing up in very different circumstances.
