Lily Cooper expresses concern over baby's health and the UK's health care system

Singer Lily Cooper (née Allen) has admitted that she's worried about her baby in a series of Twitter posts that question the health care system in place in Britain.

The 'Smile' hitmaker, who gave birth to her second child (daughter Marnie Rose) on January 8, took to her social networking page this afternoon (January 14) and expressed concern over Marnie's well-being while discussing the way that support systems for mothers work in the UK:

"So after speaking to the Brent midwifery team at 7 this morning, I was told to stay in all day and someone would be over to weigh my baby and do a jaundice assessment as I've been a bit worried. Waited all day, and nothing, not even a phone call. She'll be a week old tomorrow."

"Don't mean to moan and I know how over stretched the health service is. But I can't help but think about how mothers with less support, both financially and emotionally are meant to cope. What if I was having real problems. I haven't been able to get an answer on the phone."

She added: "I know it's not the midwives themselves' fault, they are generally angels but surely we can do better than this."
