Giving birth is not a simple event and requires much attention, care, and support to result in a positive birth experience. However, the process of giving birth changed significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the spread of the virus, the uncertainty of the virus, and the numerous restrictions implemented. These led to isolation, loneliness, a lack of communication, loss of control over the body, and little or no contribution to decision-making for the new birth mother. This, as well as a lack of social support, can harm a mother’s and baby’s mental and physical health. Thus, this article explores the importance of social support and its role before the COVID- 19 pandemic, as well as the changes that have occurred in the birth process during the COVID-19 pandemic.
