Closure of Popular Mother and Baby Groups During Lockdown Breaks Mental Health ‘Lifeline’ for New Parents

Dec 26 2020

New study reveals 4 in 10 UK parents with newborn babies felt unsupported by local health services during lockdown. The nationwide closure of popular parent and baby groups during the most recent lockdown has sparked a backlash from parents with newborns across the UK, who rely heavily on this social interaction and health support during what is a difficult and isolating time for many new mothers. The study, which was independently commissioned by nationwide baby group franchise Baby Sensory, polled several hundreds of new parents across the country on their views around the closures of these essential support groups. The study revealed that despite removing what is a vital lifeline for 95% of new parents polled, 4 in 10 say they felt unsupported by their local health service throughout the lockdown period.
