Pregnant nurse Samantha Salinas attends an appointment with her midwives at Birth Center Stone Oak in San Antonio, Texas, May 6, 2020. Mother's Day 2020 may be when her baby finally arrives. The 33-year-old nurse, whose second child is due on Friday, said she had worked through her first pregnancy with ease. But news that COVID-19 patients were checking into her intensive care unit in April prompted her to make some changes. "I called in to say I'm not coming," Salinas said. "It's distressing being pregnant. You always think who's sick around you. What worries me is there's so much unknown. So many people can be carriers and asymptomatic. That's a huge blind spot." The hospital reassigned her to a part-time job in another building doing patient follow-ups by phone. The fewer work hours reduced her income, but safety was her priority. "The vertical transmission was what I was afraid of, not so much my getting sick, but the baby getting sick," Salinas said. REUTERS/Callaghan O'Hare

Palestinian boy Hamza Ali Mohammed, 2, is kissed by his mother upon their reunion at a checkpoint near Ramallah in the Israeli-occupied West Bank May 7, 2020. Heart surgery is a trial for anyone, and especially for a young child. It was even harder for the two-year-old Palestinian who had to undergo the procedure in Israel while his family was kept away by coronavirus closures. He was reunited with his mother, who whisked him into her arms after he arrived in a van, escorted by medical personnel, at a checkpoint on the boundary between Israel and the occupied West Bank.

Rafiqa Ibrahim Radi watches a recorded video of her newborn son at her home in Basra, Iraq April 26, 2020. It has been more than a month since the mother last saw her son Seif. The 33-year-old from Basra faced a difficult pregnancy with life-threatening complications. Medical staff at her local hospital advised her to seek treatment in Ahvaz, Iran, where she gave birth via C-section three months before her due date. Rafiqa remained at her newborn's side for 20 days, until the medical staff advised her to return to Basra while Seif recovered in the neonatal intensive care unit. About two weeks ago, the family finally received the good news: Seif was strong enough to make the trip back to Iraq. But by then, the border between Iran and Iraq had already shut down due to both governments' efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Since the border closure on March 8, 2020, the two-hour car drive from Basra to Ahvaz had become impossible.
