More help for disadvantaged mothers

More support is to be provided to disadvantaged young mothers in England, ministers have announced.

The Family Nurse partnership scheme sees nurses or midwives regularly visit first-time mothers under the age of 20 until their baby is two years old.

Health Minister Dr Dan Poulter said the scheme will reach nearly 16,000 families.
