Kate Middleton getting real about the struggles of motherhood, including the lack of information available once babies reach the infant stage, can go a long way in making other moms, or in this case, mums, feel less alone.

She continued, "After that there isn't a huge amount - lots of books to read".

"Everybody experiences the same struggle", Kate asserted.

The Duchess of Cambridge was speaking at the Family Action headquarters in Lewisham, which she visited to launch its new FamilyLine service created to provide support to struggling parents.

The mum of three met with young carers and heard about how they have to balance school with the duties of caring and also spoke to some of the volunteers who have recently gotten involved.

She marvelled at their ability to balance their studies with caring, saying: "You all do an incredible job".

"Even for me, who has more support at home that most mothers do not".

Speaking in March 2017, she said: "Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience".

Family Action is a charity working directly with vulnerable children and families through over 135 community based services.

FamilyLine has already had a soft launch, running for around a year, and provides a telephone line, email and text service for anyone struggling with family life, from parenting and relationship difficulties to mental health and wellbeing.
