Louise Pentland on the positive power of online communities and her hypnobirthing experience

Vlogger and parenting blogger Louise Pentland told the Loose Women that social media can be a "lifeline" for parents and people who are feeling isolated and concerned during worrying times, like the current coronavirus situation.

"I think, like a lot of us, people are feeling anxious and worried and aware of all the changes," she explained. "I think that they're turning to social media to talk about a new normal."

Louise said she thinks people are looking for positivity and suggestions and explained why she believes they're seeking reassurance from others who've been feeling the same way online.
