Brilliant discovery

I love this podcast. Just wanted to say congratulations on your pregnancy. I have discovered a great product which may help you once you’ve had your baby which is my expert midwife soak for your bits as I am still experiencing pain nearly 2.5 years in. I hope you’re starting to feel a little better.

Gold - Beyond expectation.

Love how open Ashley is with the physical and often unspoken challenges of the early post partum motherhood & beyond. Seriously interesting topics - have shared with all my Mum friends. I found this through Ashley’s Instagram
