Having had my first son 10 months ago, I became suddenly aware of how little support there is available to new mums and keeping up their self-esteem.

When I was young, my father and I would disagree about masculinity. I remember how he was deeply shocked and offended by the first 'Brut' adverts on the TV in which two very heterosexual sportsmen, Henry Cooper and Kevin Keegan, shared some roll-on deodorant.
