Bringing your baby home for the first time is an exciting but also a scary prospect. Try not to worry, though, because we’ve complied lots of help and support to help you adjust during the first few days and weeks.

We’ve also got Helen’s story on how she learnt to breastfeed her sons Mark (2) and Alfie (3 months) happily and we talk you through the changes you’ll feel in your body after giving birth.
