Today Andrea Leadsom MP has launched the first episode of a new podcast - The 1001 Critical Days podcast will feature real life stories from parents, politicians and practitioners on how we can help to make sure every baby gets the best start for life.
First up to be interviewed by Andrea is yours truly and my wife Amy. We had twins during lockdown, and the experience was made a little more complicated due to both the Covid regulations that we had to abide by, and some of the issues with joining up the service for new parents.
I've written about the experience before for ConservativeHome, but do please have a listen to what my wife in particular has to say about the impact on maternal mental health.
