    Let's Talk About Wellbeing with Nicole

    Let's Talk About Wellbeing with Nicole

    In this episode, Tutu chats to Nicole Stephens of the Wellbeing Fans, a Health & Wellness page for women looking after children with disabilities. Nicole is a qualified Nutritionist and is the right person to be discussing this topic with me. She is Mum to 2 beautiful children and one of her girls, Amber has special needs. So, this topic is not just theory for her, she really gets it! 

    In this episode, we talk about our experiences as parent carers and Nicole shared practical steps to look after our wellbeing to make us better parents and lead a healthier life. We also explored our experiences of reaching out to social services to access respite for our children and the cultural nuances in asking for help in our community.

    You can find Nicole on her Instagram page @thewellbeingfans which she manages with her colleague, Farah (who she calls her work wife :D)

    The One With Two Special Dads

    The One With Two Special Dads

    What's so special about this episode is that there are two special needs Dads involved, it's not often we hear from Dads in the special needs space unlike Mums so this is refreshing.

    In this episode, we are in conversation with Tony & Kenny. Both Dads talk about coming to terms with the diagnosis of their special needs children, providing emotional support and share their aspirations for their children.

    Have a listen and let us know what you think.

    P.S: We have a club on clubhouse, search for 'BSNPSN - Parents Support' follow us for great conversations.
