Alice McGrath and James Ford don't know when they'll be able to see their families in person again.
Christmas and other annual celebrations are traditionally a time when families come together.
It's looking increasingly doubtful people will be able to travel and meet up with their loved ones by the end of 2020, due to the number of coronavirus cases in Australia and the world.
Addressing media on Monday, August 9 Prime Minister Scott Morrison said it was unlikely Australia would be a restriction-free society by Christmas.
Ms McGrath and Mr Ford want to share their daughter Aurora's milestones with their family members but travel restrictions under the coronavirus pandemic has made the task extremely difficult.
Mr Ford's family live in the United Kingdom and his parents have never met their first grandchild.
Technology has meant the family have been able to stay connected, as the couple send photos of Aurora every week.
However, they feel sad they're not able to share their daughter's achievements in person.
Ms McGrath's mother and two of her siblings live in Victoria. She also has a sister in Adelaide.
Another sister lives in Newcastle, a location which was recently declared a hotspot for the virus.
Aurora will turn one in November, a significant celebration which would usually be attended by a number of family members.
Her birthday party will be a smaller affair in 2020 due to border restrictions and health requirements.
Ms McGrath said for Christmas it's looking as though they'll have no other option but to stay in Port Macquarie.
"We're lucky we've made a lot of friends through my mother's group, so it will probably turn into a festive day spent with friends," she said.
"We've got our little village."
Lifeline Mid Coast crisis support manager Di Bannister said it's important people talk about and acknowledge feelings of isolation and loneliness.
"Loneliness has been a big topic for a long time but it's almost as hidden as suicide," she said.
Mrs Bannister said people won't be able to acquire the support they need until they open up on how they are feeling.
Lifeline is urging people to reach out to others during the pandemic and be creative in ways they connect.
Mrs Bannister gave an example of where a woman put a note in a resident's letterbox to voice her appreciation for their front garden.
"The person who received that message would have felt very special," she said.
