As a long-time resident of Wuhan, I returned home for New Year’s Eve on the 28th of the previous waxing moon. Following that, many cities began to take precautionary measures, and many cities began to close, and later, infections began to appear in places, and finally, the village where my hometown is located began to be closed from village to village, so there was no way to go out. After spending the first few days relieved that they were not infected and could return home to see their families, they encountered a problem that everyone faces: the inability to purchase food.
Unlike ordinary material purchases, the family had a pregnant woman, as do some other families. My wife was only 3 months pregnant when I returned home on the 28th of the lunar month, and she is now 5 months! That’s right, she has been at home for nearly 2 months! She not only missed the more important non-invasive maternity test, but she also only brought a change of clothes and some New Year’s Eve decorations because she didn’t think it would be as serious as it is now when she returned home. I only brought a week’s worth of milk powder, which is an essential supplement during pregnancy, and drank it all within a few days of returning home. Following that, I relied heavily on eggs to supplement my nutrition on a daily basis.
Of course, being born in a country like China can be a source of joy at times. All major milk powder brands began to aid Hubei in the middle of February, including milk powder aid for pregnant women and babies, as long as the relevant information is submitted as required, you can apply for the milk powder aid. I finally received a successful application for Mead Johnson’s maternal milk powder nearly a month after the baby in my belly was weaned, which gave me some comfort on the days when I couldn’t leave the village.
The truth is that you can get free milk powder and some protective supplies, and you can still feel the warmth of this country and some caring businesses.
Until now, only SF and postal can normally receive goods in my Xiantao (the next city to Wuhan), and the timeframe is much shorter than usual, this love package took a long time to receive, take the postal courier, courier box can see the “battle for love, guarding the newborn” slogan ‘
In addition to a 370g can of maternal milk powder, the contents of this love package are quite extensive, including hand sanitizer * 1 protective glasses * 1 secondary mask * 10 secondary gloves 1 maternity kit ‘
Masks and protective glasses are even more scarce than milk powder. In a situation where masks are scarce and virtually unavailable in Hubei, it is unusual to find 10 masks in each love package, and protective glasses can also come in handy if you have to go to the hospital as a last resort. ‘
We can drink this can of Mead Johnson milk powder for pregnant women for about 10 to 15 days based on our own dosage, so we hope it will last until the epidemic is over. ‘
In fact, as first-time mothers, we don’t have much understanding of milk powder; generally, choosing milk powder will be based on their spending power to choose, the year before in Wuhan has tuned two cans of maternal milk powder, but now can’t return ‘
0 When we return to Wuhan, we will have plenty of time to develop the habit of regularly washing our hands, and hand sanitizer will become the norm for every family. ‘
1 Similarly, after returning to Wuhan, I believe I will wear a mask to and from work and outside for at least six months, and the mask will also become a standard travel item, as will the ten masks included in the love package. ‘
2 Secondary glove bag; chances of using it are slim, but I’m hoping to eat spicy crawfish this year. ‘
3 This bag is also very useful as a pregnant woman, and I will definitely use it when I give birth in the future. ‘
4 This maternity bag has a particularly large capacity, and as a welcome for a new baby, you can bring everything you need for a hospital birth, and the bag itself is very stylish and of high quality, which we appreciate. ‘
5 Every day, we see good news that the domestic epidemic is gradually being brought under control. In comparison to the numbers that continue to rise every day abroad, it appears that the situation at home is far better in the face of such a natural disaster. I am also grateful for the sponsorship of these caring Chinese companies, which allows ordinary people in the midst of the epidemic to feel the warmth. Finally, I hope that the epidemic will be over soon and that life will resume normalcy.
