I find I am positive some days and really need to see people on others so have switched my "social life" to video calling. Last night we "went out with friends" by using an app called in the house - could just have easily been a face time or whats app video call - had a glass of wine and a good old chin wag. :) I think seeing people's faces as well as hearing their voices is really important.
I have found using some of the digital platforms like zoom, facetime and houseparty to keep in touch with my daughters and also share a drink with friends when we would have gone out together fantastic. It lifts spirits to see a smiling face and share a laugh when stuck between four walls !
Like others, I'm using face-time or zoom, Whatsapp etc to keep in contact with family and friends. What i am struggling with is being on maternity leave and not being able to attend baby groups to meet new mums and make connections that i know will be of benefit to me, and to the development of my baby. I am not aware of any online groups that use either video chat or group (written) chats, but i do think this would be helpful.
