    How do we hold on to this slowdown?

    As parents in a very fast-paced world, it can be easy to become over-scheduled and for our kids to feel overstimulated. It seems like we’re so time poor that we can often feel like we have to cram every spare moment we have into making memories and activities and outings. In 2020 we have gotten a taste for slow-parenting, but how do we hold onto it? Em, Maz and Jess caught up with psychologist Leanne Hall to get her expert advice.

    You absolutely need to put yourself first

    From the beginning of motherhood, you find yourself sacrificing a lot of things, your body, your sleep, your free time – it can be really easy to just slip into the role of being a mum and devote yourself entirely to this beautiful new soul and completely forget who you are and what you need.

    And it doesn’t stop when your children are babies, you get into the habit of putting your needs last and before you know it you’ve lost your sense of who you are...

    So how do you find yourself again? Em, Maz and Jess are joined by psychologist Leanne Hall to talk about how to make self-care work in motherhood.

    When you’re pregnant, everyone will bombard you with information about sleep, tease you about how little sleep you’re going to get, and just genuinely freak you out about it-  to the point where you wonder if you’ll ever get a full night’s sleep again. But what is it really like in the no-sleep trenches and is there ANYTHING you can do to help? Maz, Jess and Em are joined by sleep expert Mary-Anne Sayer to find out.
