Supportive!

I've recently started listening to this podcast on my journey to work.
This podcast is so incredibly supportive; it feels like being part of a supportive friendship group.
So much great advice and just provides me with reassurance!
Wish this was around when my son was a newborn!

Brilliant!

I’ve never really been one for podcasts but I’ve started listening to these whilst doing the washing/ pots etc! So easy to listen to and so informative! Highly recommend to other parents!

so informative for new mums!

I’ve recently started listening to these podcasts, usually while doing the million jobs that mums have to do. They are so informative and easy to listen to. 2020 has been a tricky year for mums - no physical visits to health visitors, no meeting up with mum and baby groups, a lot less support. So having these to listen to have been great for a lot of the topics you would have discussed with other people. Thank you for creating a podcast that’s a great support for us!
