Since launching the #HiddenHalf campaign in summer 2017, thousands of supporters have joined us to taken action across the UK to fight for better postnatal checks for new mums. In England, 80 MPs and three Health ministers came on board, then in February 2020, we had a huge campaign success as the English government announced that it would fund GP maternal postnatal checks. Now we are campaigning for this to be rolled out across the UK.
