Kate Middleton visited the Family Action charity on Tuesday to launch a new support line, in which volunteers will take calls from parents and caregivers across the United Kingdom.

She said: "It makes her human".

She joked about the help available to mothers nationally, saying: 'You get a lot of support with the baby years... particularly in the early days up to the age of about one, but after that there isn't a huge amount - lots of books to read'.

More recently, during a visit to the London charity Family Action, Kate opened up about some of the challenges of being a mom to five-year-old Prince George, three-year-old Princess Charlotte, and eight-month-old Prince Louis. Even though Prince William seems like a pretty hands-on dad, Middleton had to endure the pregnancies, which meant looking after her other children while pregnant or recovering from labour.

Royal Correspondent for United Kingdom publication The Sun explained on Twitter that the former actress told royalists at Birkenhead that she was six months pregnant and due to give birth at the end of April or the start of May.

The telephone, text, and email service is for anyone who is struggling with their family life, including parenting, relationship troubles, debt, addiction, and mental health.

As a mother of three, the Duchess of Cambridge certainly knows what she's talking about, which is why it will be nice to have her on hand to welcome the newest member of the royal family.

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

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