This is a new section for Mums and the idea is to have a single point of contact for useful links that might be useful to you .

All suggestions would be warmly welcomed but the idea for adding a section just for new Mums came from a local group of young Mums who have started a group where ideas can be shared with the emphasis on creativity – First Mummies Club

Our health visitors are always here to help support and they too have an excellent website full of handy information on both antenatal care and help in the early years.

Parenthood obviously brings with it lots of new pressures and it can be a really stressful time, particularly with the online impression that everyone else is the ultimate Mum as you sit there wondering why it’s all feeling so hard. Post natal depression is really common in fact, affecting 1:10 of new Mums in the first year .If you are feeling stressed don’t hesitate to give your health visitor a ring or contact us here at the surgery for an appointment.
