Kate Middleton is addressing new mother's struggles by highlighting postpartum depression

The duchess, who wore a baby blue coat and dress by Seraphine, was quoting research data from a study by Professor Louise Howard from the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust which runs the mother and baby unit.

Yes, punters in Britain are already beginning the long and arduous process of guessing what Kate Middleton and Prince William's third child will be called, with bets being placed as soon as the news was announced last September.

Dr Gertrude Seneviratne, Lead of the Perinatal Mental Health Services, Consultant in General Adult and Perinatal Psychiatry, and Chair of the Royal College of Psychiatrists' Perinatal Faculty, said: "The arrival of a baby should be the happiest time in a woman's life, but for some women this is not the case - our research shows that one in four women experience mental health problems during pregnancy or shortly after the baby is born".

On Tuesday, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, announced a new initiative that will provide free mental health resources for teachers and school staff to help them help their students tackle mental health challenges. "My own commitment is to the youngest and most vulnerable in their early years - babies, toddlers and schoolchildren - and to support all those who care for them". Kate chatted with the clinicians and patients during her trip and learned more about the issues surrounding maternal mental health. Teachers want to help, but don't have the time to go hunting for the best information and advice out there. They focus mainly on helping babies, children, and underprivileged young people, as well as veterans.

'Up until now, the array of online resources has been hard to navigate; it is often unclear whether items are expertly verified, and teachers are often unsure how appropriate the advice is for their particular age-group or issue'.

And it looks as though the duchess is not only a fan of the pumps but her entire look.

When Kate Middleton finds something she loves, she wears it over and over again, like her beloved wedges or her nude LK Bennett pumps.

The pink coat appeared to suggest that the royal could be expecting a girl when she gives birth later this year.
