She added: “I can understand that people are nervous about asking for help for fear of judgment, and how that sense of isolation can quickly become overriding and debilitating for any new parent.
“Recognizing that the task of parenting is substantial, I have realized the importance of working to make it easier for parents to request support.
“Your work has helped me see more clearly where there are gaps in this support for parents and families.”
