Had a lovely experience with a sure start support worker after giving birth to my third baby whilst also caring for 2 year old twins. She actively listened (properly - not like the fake smile you get from so many healthcare professionals, who think you are talking for too long) and provided practical support by helping me get out of the house to sure start toddler groups - impossible with one set of hands.
It helped me at a time when I was having a wobble - tired, sleep deprived, hormonal and a huge fall out with my mother in law all meant that I was permanently stressed and on edge. The twins benefited by getting out of the house to get some stimulation and to meet other children, which in turn helped me to manage them.
