Families enjoy baby yoga classes during Neonatal Awareness Week

The first-ever Neonatal Awareness Week, launched by a charity on Teesside, is drawing to a close.

Leo's Neonatal provides mental health support for families whose babies are born premature or were very poorly at work.

The charity was set up by Lottie King, from Yarm. Lottie lost her own baby son Leo, who was born premature.

  • The charity's research found that:
79%
of parents felt their mental health was affected during the neonatal period
78%
of parents felt they didn't get adequate emotional support in subsequent pregnancies
46%
of parents had suffered problems within their relationship

As Zoe Muldoon reports, one of the ways the charity is helping is by inviting families to baby yoga classes.
