Everything I was doing was for the baby, finding little time to do things like washing my hair or finishing a cup of tea. I just needed someone to say it’s okay!  I needed someone to say ‘slow down, create opportunities for yourself’ and in the end I realised that looking after myself was just as important as looking after my new baby. Having Kate in my home provided that support, space and time for me to come to terms with the changes that were happening to me and around me and build my resilience as a parent.
