Kate Middleton says that she felt 'so isolated' after the birth of Prince George
I think a lot of mums can relate.
Being a new mum isn't easy. You're trying to figure everything out for the first time like feeds and getting your baby to sleep all the while battling your own exhaustion.
Doing it on your own is even harder which is something I came up against myself on my eldest. Paternity leave wasn't a thing in Ireland at the time and I was left holding the baby alone, after just having had a C-section, my husband had to go back to work.
It was a very lonely and stressful time. It's also something that while many mums go through, they often don't talk about.
Recently Kate Middleton, a mum of three, opened up about how lonely she felt after she had given birth to her first child.
The 38-year-old visited a children and parents centre in Cardiff this week and according to Marie Claire, she spoke about her own experiences as a first time mum;
"It was the first year and I’d just had George — William was still working with search and rescue — and we came up here and I had a tiny, tiny baby in the middle of Anglesey.
It was so isolated, so cut off. I didn’t have any family around, and he was doing night shifts."
Kate went on to say that she wished that there had been a centre like the one she visited when she was a new mum to help deal with her feelings of isolation.
I think a lot of us can relate to these feelings and it's refreshing to see a mum with a platform speak out using it to let other mums know that they are not alone.
Since first becoming a mum in 2013 to Prince George, Kate has given birth to two more children, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis Arthur Charles.
