"Thank you SO much for your emails!! One email from you was far more helpful than weeks of Google and reading....Thank you so much again for getting back to me, it's wonderful that there are other mums out there who know exactly what a new international arriving mum needs and looks for, and are willing to offer support."
Please note: The BCT information team offers information only. If you need personal or mental health support, please contact the Community Help Service (CHS), which has a 24-hour English-speaking help line and offers counselling services.
