For many new mothers, having their own mum or even grandmother on hand can be a lifeline, particularly in those stressful early days and months.
For many, though, that simply isn't an option - and even when it is, many questions still prove unanswerable.
Now a nationwide app is offering young mums who find themselves struggling help in the form of a baby app.
The Baby Buddy app is free and is particularly aimed at young mums who are not familiar with antenatal services.
It helps mothers through from the first stages of pregnancy to aftercare, with all the information necessary to give a healthy start for the baby.
New mum Kirsty Francois and Lead Midwife at Guys & St Thomas' Emily Denness joined Wake Up London to tell us more and to discuss whether an app is the best support possible for young mothers.
