Amazing podcast

I have learnt so much from this podcast especially the most recent one with Simone.
I’ve been enjoying listening to all the episodes on my daily walks.
The episode with Alex founder of Social pantry was also brilliant.
Would recommend Growing Up Female to everyone!

What Every Female Needs!

It's so informative and comforting - it feels like a conversation with your best friend / big sister / agony aunt!

Real and honest

I have really enjoyed listening to this podcast through lockdown and tbh it’s a great time to listen to some great female voices when we perhaps aren’t feeling our usual selves. I was so surprised by the podcast with Toni Terry, I didn’t know much about her except that she was married to John and trained with Bradley, it was lovely to hear how she felt after she had twins, being a new mum and then how that has changed for her as they’ve got older. A great podcast that I’ve already recommended to my girls.
