Thankyou

I am a first time listener and it just happened to be the Eps where you had Lauren Peterson on discussing her rare skin condition, this is very close to me as I have a 7 year old with a very rare skin condition called Ichthyosis Confetti. To hear Lauren speak about how she is finally comfortable in her own skin is wonderful and as a mum all I hope is that my beautiful girls has the strength Lauren has. X

The science of multiples

This is a great podcast with some interesting guests.

Just a note for Mel who told Beau from The Amazing Race that she held her breath at her first ultrasound as there are triplets on her husband’s side of the family. As men don’t ovulate, hereditary on the father’s side doesn’t increase the chance of having multiples. Kind of thought a parenting expert would know that! 😊
