Eighteen months ago, Brazil was first hit by the Zika virus. Now, thousands of mothers are caring for babies with severe deformities. The Zika outbreak was linked to an alarming rise in babies born with microcephaly, a disease that affects the development of the skull and brain. Health authorities have promised to open specialised treatment centres for the infants. But in the meantime, parents are turning to each other for help.
