I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Kate in the first few weeks after I had my daughter. A few days after she was born, my mum went into hospital for a big operation and knowing she couldn’t help me in the way she wanted to, she asked Kate to offer me support instead. She was amazing: kind, caring, reassuring, and crucially gave me the confidence I, like so many first time parents, badly needed, especially when my baby lost a lot of weight and I struggled to feed her. It was much more than practical help, although that was much appreciated too, Kate was also brilliant at offering advice, referring me to more, and supporting any decision I made. Kate made such a difference in our lives. She was wonderful, and I could not recommend her more highly – she’ll forever be an important part of those first few wonderful but challenging weeks!
