This week The Duchess of Cambridge was out promoting positive messages surrounding mental health issues in children, babies and new mothers.
As a mother of two currently expecting her third baby, The Duchess is the perfect advocate for this cause, and we couldn’t be prouder to have dressed her as she spread such a vital message.

On Tuesday the Duchess visited Roe Green Junior School in North West London to launch the fantastic new Heads Together initiative – Mentally Healthy Schools.
The project entails a brand new website with free resources for teachers and school staff, aimed at helping them to support and promote pupils’ mental health and wellbeing.

On Wednesday, The Duchess continued her amazing awareness-raising work by visiting two London clinics specialising in maternal mental health.
At King’s College, she visited the Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute to learn about their pioneering research and new approaches to perinatal mental health.
Then in the afternoon, she travelled to the Royal Bethlem Hospital to meet with patients and clinicians at the NHS mother and baby unit there.

For these visits, the Duchess teamed our Natasha Cashmere Blend Maternity Coat with our Florrie Printed Woven Maternity Dress – a style she also wore earlier this month for her visit to Reach Academy in Feltham.
As a maternity brand, issues surrounding the mental health of mothers and babies are very close to our hearts. We are thrilled to see the vital work the Heads Together foundation is undertaking to end the stigma and open up conversations about mental health at every stage of life.
