When things go Tits Up, they're broken. When things are broken, we pull up our 'big girl pants' and we wade through the muck. I've seen more tits than the late Hugh Hefner, but the Tits Up podcast isn't all about boobs and babies. We all have our Tits Up times and we need to laugh, cry rage and be real about these - so we can bust the 'BS' superficial images of perfection that cause so much stress and anxiety to us all. We need positive models to inspire, encourage and lead the way through the hard times, proving the matra: 'This too shall pass'. Please be brave and join me in unfiltered discussions about our own personal Tits Up experiences. Nothing is taboo: the hard stuff, the funny stuff and especially the stuff that mothers feel, but also feel we shouldn't say out loud - lest we be judged. My message is: 'Tits Up ladies, pull up your big girl pants, we can do this, we are mothers'.

    Dr Jana Pitman – Olympian, World Champion athlete, mother of four and medical Dr in a busy emergency dept through the pandemic.

    Making Money and Mothering on Your Terms

    Making Money and Mothering on Your Terms

    Leonie Dawson is a multi-millionaire Mum who’s built a business from scratch in only ten hours a week – because that’s all the time she had around a high needs baby! Check out this sage advice from a Mum who knows how to combat the whirlwind expectations of perfection that plague mothers. And if she forgets and buys into the myth, then out comes ‘Sharon’ – Leonie’s anti-christ persona armed with the emotional ‘blowtorch’ demanding a spotless, organised house, wearing lycra active wear shouting: “Whose f@#king socks are these!? I’ve been picking up f@#king socks all day! I don’t even bloody wear them!” Then the calm after the storm when the family joins in on the ‘hour of power’, where done is better than perfect. And as she quips, the rest is just a ‘sloppy hobby’ :>)
