Kate told staff: “I think more places like this would be so valuable in communities, bringing people together.”
She spoke to mothers about problems ranging from loneliness to postnatal depression and addiction.
Kate, who has made it her mission to help improve the first five years of children’s lives in the belief that early intervention can stop problems developing in later life, met staff and volunteers as well as mothers and babies using the centre.
The centre offers support in a non-clinical setting at a primary school to women feeling vulnerable even before they have given birth and aims to help them become more resilient and raise happy, healthy children.
