It was so good to be able to go on this course. My mum talks about when I was a baby when the health visitors would drop in regularly to give advice to her. These days it doesn’t happen like that at all. I now feel so much better prepared to look after my baby which means that I can relax a bit instead of being fearful every time she is a bit off colour.
