Time to talk

Wherever you are and whatever time day or night, your conversation matters.

One in five mothers suffer from postnatal depression and anxiety during pregnancy and in the first year of their baby’s life.

Don’t suffer in silence, there are people who will listen and who can help you. Pick up the phone and speak to your midwife or health visitor or go and see your GP.

Today is the 2nd of February…a day when conversations change lives, let one change yours today….http://www.time-to-change.org.uk/timetotalkday

The report, State of the Nation – What Children in the UK are eating, provides a snapshot on how millions of children ate food during 2016 and the challenges that are facing parents due to the food environment of today’s world.
