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.
