In this footage, we are introduced to Gemma and her third baby: 7 week old Thomas.

Gemma discusses some of the challenges of managing a busy life with two other children when being pregnant and how she coped with increased stress levels during her pregnancy.

Gemma received a baby box when Thomas was born. This initiative, by the Scottish Government, aims to provide all new babies in Scotland with the best start in life.

Gemma’s story could provide the basis for a case study of a new mum with a young family.
