I live these podcasts and find it so refreshing listening to honest mums!! I’ve laughed out loud at all of them so far and find the subjects so interesting and sometimes touching!!
I can’t wait for the next episodes. X
Great podcast! I’m currently 25 weeks first time mum & mentally/emotionally preparing myself for my son to arrive! I’m also a CBT therapist and in NHS IAPTs (improving access to psychological therapies) those suffering with maternal mental health problems are prioritised for treatment & will skip the waitlist.
Thanks again and looking forward to more!
Love this podcast already!!
So I love this podcast already, the episode about smears is fantastic to raise awareness as I know myself a few people who did have abnormal cells. I’m actually due a smear and hadn’t thought so this has reminded me to get booked in. So excited for the next podcast and I love how it’s uncensored rather than recorded and edited! Thanks :)
