Other sources of help
Support and reassurance are essential, particularly in the early days and weeks. As well as your health care team (your GP and your health visitor) it can be beneficial and enjoyable to talk to other new mothers. Your health visitor may be able to tell you about local mother and baby groups.
For advice about other issues, e.g. medical problems, sex and contraception, changing relationships and the strain parenthood puts on relationships, your health visitor will be able to advise you on sources of help.
