A new group called Blind Mums Connect has been created to provide a link for visually impaired mums from all over the UK, sharing information and supporting one another.
There are groups and get togethers to enable mums to share experiences and swap practical tips, from feeding your baby and choosing a suitable carrier or buggy, to dealing with schools and homework.
Members include mums-to-be, mums of newborns, toddlers, older kids and teens, and with all levels of visual impairment. It is run by mums and is free to join. There is an online support group and Skype support groups, and a members eZine.
