When we’re pregnant there are a number of apps we can download to monitor the progress of our growing baby. These apps can explain how big the baby is, what’s happening in their brains and even give you tips on what food to eat.
Like many things, when it comes to parenting, there’s an understandable focus on the development of the baby. But what about the development of the mum? The Centre for Perinatal Excellence (COPE) has created a regular email service that helps mums adjust to their new life – with all the things that change and shift in the first year.
Dr Nicole Highet is the founder and Executive Director of COPE. She explains why this service is so important, and how it works.
