NEW mums are encouraged to sign up to a support group which is running in Oakham.

The Early Days courses are run by the National Childbirth Trust to help parents with children up to the age of six months.

The informal sessions give parents the chance to share the highs and lows of being a parent, make new friends and find on-going support.

Course leader Sandie Forrester, from the NCT, said: ‘First-time mums often find that motherhood is not quite the wonderful experience they thought it would be. They can feel overwhelmed, anxious and alone.

“During the Early Days sessions mums gain confidence as they talk about how they really feel, share ideas and learn new things about being a parent.”

Topics include sleeping, crying, routines, family relationships, work and childcare needs.
