“A quarter of new mums who’ve given birth in the past 12 months say they were not asked about their emotional or mental health at *their six-week GP check-up, according to the survey of nearly 1,000 mothers by the National Childbirth Trust (NCT). This is a huge figure – and could be up to 150,000 new mums in the last year.
In addition, the majority of mums (85%) said the appointment was focused on the baby’s health, despite a policy change in 2020 that stipulated all new mums should receive *an appointment to check their own physical and mental health.”
