    THE FINAL EPISODE - we interview each other!

    THE FINAL EPISODE - we interview each other!

    "And now, the end is near, so I face the final curtain"


    Bit dramatic but we are reaching the conclusion of season 1 of Maybe Baby, so forgive us if we're a bit sad to see the end.


    We were wracking our brains for what to do as a final episode when we hit upon the idea of interviewing each other - we thought it'd help us see what's changed and how we feel now.


    So tune in to find out:
    - Which guest we'd want to babysit our child
    - What features we'd choose from each other for our child (and our parents!)
    - Some hot-takes on private school


    And a lot more! And listen in to the end to find out our plans for the future...

    TALKING TO OUR PARENTS with Boj's Mum

    TALKING TO OUR PARENTS with Boj's Mum

    It's the penultimate episode of the series and it's time to talk to our parents - or more specifically, Boj's Mum, Suzanne. You can finally hear what she actually sounds like!


    Given our differing views on having kids, we wanted to talk to her about her interesting life, how it shaped her decisions around having a family and the experience of bringing up children. Also, how Boj's Dad failed to fill up his car at the crucial moment...

    FERTILITY TEST TIME with Dr Marie Wren

    FERTILITY TEST TIME with Dr Marie Wren

    So for all the debate about having children - how did we know we could actually conceive? Only one way to find out...we visited one of London's leading fertility clinics to undertake a "Fit for Fertility" test. Dr Marie Wren is deputy director at The Lister Fertility Clinic and has helped hundreds of couples through their fertility journey - so who better to help us?


    There's laughs, there's tears (actual tears) and a lot to learn - and things aren't all as rosy as we might like.


    The Lister Fertility Clinic is part of HCA Healthcare. For more info about fertility, visit www.ivf.org.uk for more info.

    PODCLASH! Maybe Baby x Birth Stories with CLEMMIE HOOPER

    PODCLASH! Maybe Baby x Birth Stories with CLEMMIE HOOPER

    It's podclash time! Maybe Baby meets Birth Stories in this episode as we welcome midwife extraordinaire CLEMMIE HOOPER to the podcast.


    Clemmie's extensive experience in the NHS positions her perfectly to give us some answers, right? Maybe not all the ones that Kate would want - but we delve into the many types of twins, how you can tell if they're identical (spoiler - it's your ears!) and the strangest things she's seen on duty.


    You can hear Clemmie's podcast Birth Stories here: https://play.acast.com/s/birthstories

    JENNY ECLAIR on raising children

    JENNY ECLAIR on raising children

    We've spent so much time focusing on the early years that we didn't want to lose sight of the fact that kids grow up - so we spoke to comedy legend JENNY ECLAIR about her experiences with Phoebe, her daughter.


    We hear all about how Jenny (unspectacularly) conceived, how she had to sack her child-minder for leaving her daughter with an arsonist and her thoughts on what Boj should do (!)


    Published too late for the podcast but The Telegraph covered us for a piece that came out today - you can read it here: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/family/parenting/kate-lawler-sometimes-feel-something-wrong-love-feel-not-conflicted/

    Maybe another baby with BRYONY GORDON

    Maybe another baby with BRYONY GORDON

    It's a question that seems to get asked of every parent - when's the next one coming?


    It's another perception that we wanted to challenge on the podcast, so who better to talk to than BRYONY GORDON - journalist, author and mental health advocate. And whilst this podcast is about having another kid, it's also about life, gratefulness and the noises guinea pigs make.


    You can find more information about Bryony's charity Mental Health Mates here: https://www.mentalhealthmates.co.uk/
