We receive a huge number of requests from members to post anonymously on their behalf. Unfortunately, due to the sheer number of requests and the amount of time it takes admin to do, we cannot post all questions.
We will only post things that are sensitive in nature (for example, early pregnancy, mental illness, relationship issues), but not the ones that contain information that most of us that most of us have to deal with (such as toilet training). We will not post any medical questions that can be answered by a discussion with your GP. If in doubt, ALWAYS see a doctor.
Before submitting a request for an anonymous post, we would ask you use the ‘search’ function in the NSM Facebook group. From a desktop, click on the magnifying glass and type the keyword. Most questions have already been asked before!
