Four weeks ago, when I was just over 38 weeks pregnant, I went to my local hospital In Kingston-Upon-Thames, West London, and asked for a scan because I was concerned that the lack of amniotic fluid around my baby was putting him at risk of infection. In the most serious cases low amniotic fluid can cause a baby to be stillborn. Having tested positive for coronavirus only two weeks before and the fact I am a much older mum at the age of 48, I was understandably anxious about having a safe delivery. I had discussed having an induction with my consultant, although no date had been agreed.
