New mum? Get support with the #EarlyDaysClub live

Being a new parent is tough. But being a new parent during a global pandemic? That's a whole other story. Learning how to juggle this new bundle of love can prove even more challenging when you aren't able to access the vital support network that can make such a difference, whethers that's family, friends, NCT mums or even your neighbours.

To help, baby wipe brand Waterwipes have launched #EarlyDaysClub, a place where there are no silly questions, myths are busted, taboos tackled, chaos embraced and questions answered by parents going through it, parents who’ve done it before and approachable healthcare professionals. And most importantly, showing you that you are not alone. 

As a member of the  #EarlyDaysClub, you'll be invited to live events featuring a community of new celeb parents and health care professionals. In the lead up to each live event, you can send in your questions or topics of concern by heading to WaterWipes on Instagram or Facebook

Waterwipes will host the very first #EarlyDaysClub Live on May 7th, taking place on Zoom and hosted by by comedian and mum Ellie Taylor. Taking place at 2pm, the celeb panel will include Myleene Klass, Ryan Thomas and health professionals Dr Laura Lenihan and midwife Marie Louise - who are both expecting themselves. Topics that will be discussed include parenting in lockdown, newborn advice and the  importance of staying connected.

Host Ellie Taylor said: "Becoming a parent for the first time is such an experience filled with emotions and my heart goes out to all new and expectant parents during this incredibly difficult time. With social distancing restrictions in place, many are finding themselves isolated from their support networks and suddenly navigating parenthood differently than they expected. It's time like these that support networks like the Early Days Club are so vital, and why I’m so pleased to be partnering with the WaterWipes family to bring more parents together and open up the conversation on parenthood."


<UPDATE: this event will now happen 2pm on Thursday> I took these photos in my first week of becoming a mum. One minute, staring lovingly at the little alien stranger I had somehow made, and the next, crying uncontrollable tears (look at the little quiver in my chin 💔). I wanted to remember it all. And I do, I remember how tough things were as a new parent and feel so much love for those becoming parents in this lockdown, which is why I’m so chuffed @WaterWipes have created a support network for new and expectant parents during this time. I’m delighted to be joining the first #earlydaysclub live at 2pm on 7th May (this Thursday) on Zoom to talk about my experiences and answer your questions alongside @myleeneklass, @ryanthomas84, @the_modern_midwife and @drlauragp Head to @WaterWipes for more info and comment your questions below for us to answer or tag a new parent. (And to all the new parents out there reading this - just a heads up that you are doing so well my loves, and yes you do deserve that takeaway and no you don’t need to hoover the stairs.) •••••••••••••••••••••• #earlydaysclub #WaterWipes #ThisIsParenthood #StayHomeStaySafe #ad
