Parents of newborns officially have one less thing to worry about.
Midwife Cath posted on Instagram yesterday about “stork marks” – small red marks that look like birthmarks, which generally appear on the back of a baby’s neck.
“It’s not a birthmark and will disappear after 12-18 months,” Cath wrote. “Some babies also have the red areas on their eyelids and on their forehead. All normal kisses from the stork.”
Her post got a huge response.
