Me After You aims to answer the question "Who the hell am I, now that I'm a mum?". Host Laura Byrne walks us through the big post-motherhood moments with stories of wisdom, humour, breakdown, ambition, love, hope and rebirth from a truly diverse range of parents.

    Hope: Yes, You Are Still You

    Hope: Yes, You Are Still You

    This is the final episode of this season of Me After You and we wanted to leave you with a sense of hope. 

    We find hope in the comfort of our shared fears and failures, in the shared joys and tiny wins. Hope for what comes next, for both you and your child.

    In this episode, you’ll be hearing from Marcia Leone about how she embraced pregnancy after miscarriage, Alex Nation on the part of parenthood she loves the most, Nama Winston on living her best life after leaving an unhappy marriage, and Ashe Davenport on how, for her, motherhood is all about letting go.

    Travel: Grounded With Kids

    Travel: Grounded With Kids

    Ahhh travelling with kids. Back in the days when we could actually travel beyond our home suburb, this was a topic that everyone had an opinion about, and no doubt will again. Whether you want to travel overseas or hit the road for a camping trip, going away with your baby can be stressful, complicated and judged by family, friends and even strangers.  

    In this episode of Me After You, single mum and writer Evie Farrel tells us how she packed up her entire life and now travels the world with her daughter Emmy. You’ll also be hearing from another solo mum, Nama Winston, about how challenging it can be to travel when you child has allergies. And Melanie Dimmit shares how her life dramatically changed when her son was diagnosed with quadralplegic cerebral palsy, and how the diagnosis transformed travel for the family.

    Self Care: You Remember That, Right?

    Self Care: You Remember That, Right?

    What does self-care look like, now you’re a parent? Who has time for meditation, massage and naps when they can't even get a solid six hours sleep at night?

    On this episode, you’ll be hearing from mums describing what self-care means to them, including:
    -  Ashe Davenport on how other people's expectations made it difficult for her to feel like she was allowed to prioritise herself once she became a mum
    - Stephanie Thompson and how her writing time is her ‘wine down’ time
    -  Actress Teresa Palmer who finds solace in listening to true crime podcasts.

    Home: A Battleground And Safe Haven

    Home: A Battleground And Safe Haven

    Home after you become a parent is more than four walls and a roof. It’s a battleground, and a safe haven. It’s a never ending pile of washing, it’s memories, and it’s tantrums.

    On today’s episode of Me After You, you’ll be hearing from Emilyeen Filardi, a self proclaimed “clean freak” who’s on the hunt for a house that’s a bit more family-friendly, Laura Jackal who lived with a housemate  after having her first baby, Ashe Davenport who finds it super helpful to embrace and meditate in mess, and many other mums who share what home life means to them.

    So what does home actually mean to new parents? And how do you get past the mess to find the joy? On this episode of Me After You, we find out.

    Family: If It Takes A Village, Where’s Mine?

    Family: If It Takes A Village, Where’s Mine?

    Motherhood doesn’t only change your relationship with yourself. It can also change your connections with those around you. Sometimes it brings you closer. At other times, you might wish you could get just a bit more space.

    On this episode of Me After You, Laura speaks to Maria Paz Hartado, who, after moving to Australia from Chile, had to abandon any notion of the familiar when it came to giving birth the Aussie way. Truan Terrance, whose in-laws saved her life when her husband was away for weeks as a FIFO worker. And journalist Narelda Jacobs on how her dad was right there by her side helping her raise her daughter Jade while she studied and worked. 

    We share stories about women’s experiences with their own families, and the support networks they did or didn’t have when they became mothers.
