Our round-up of the lat­est es­sen­tial par­ent­ing up­dates and key trends

Y but our six-week check should be as much about you as your baby, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey from the NCT, many of us aren’t get­ting the op­por­tu­nity to tell our GP how we’re get­ting on emo­tion­ally. So the NCT has launched a new cam­paign called Hid­den Half to en­sure that new mums get the time they need to dis­cuss their emo­tional health at their six-week check. To get the most out of your ap­point­ment, re­quest a double time-slot if you have any con­cerns you’d like to dis­cuss, jot down a list of things you want to chat about be­fore­hand and talk about how you’re feel­ing first, so you don’t feel rushed.
