    Libby Page: The highs and lows of early motherhood

    Libby Page: The highs and lows of early motherhood

    Whether you’ve got a baby right now or your kids are a bit older, my chat with Libby Page on this episode will probably resonate with you. Libby is the author of three bestseller books - The Lido, The 24-Hour Café and The Island Home – and she became a mum last year to her son Robin.
    Libby is refreshingly honest about the ups and downs of her experiences so far as a mum, talking openly on social media when things go well, and when they all feel a bit overwhelming.
    We talk about her expectations of motherhood and how they compare to the reality, how honest we should be with pregnant women about birth and motherhood, and more.
    You can follow Libby on Twitter and Instagram and buy her books here.

    Natalie Lee: Shedding shame and finding sexual freedom

    Natalie Lee: Shedding shame and finding sexual freedom

    My guest on this episode is Natalie Lee – once a midwife, she started a fashion blog and now uses her online platform to discuss body image, confidence, shame and lots more.
    Now, Natalie has written her first book, Feeling Myself, which is a memoir about her experiences around sex and shame. In the book, Nat takes us along for the ride on her journey of self-discovery, searching out and then smashing some of the most powerful taboos around shame, sex and socialised sexism which have held her back and which she thinks have probably held you back too.
    Follow Nat on Instagram and buy her book here.

    Deborah James (REPLAY): Living With Stage Four Bowel Cancer

    Deborah James (REPLAY): Living With Stage Four Bowel Cancer

    This is a special replay of an interview I did with Deborah James back in January 2018. It was just over a year after she’d been diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer and we sat in her living room, drinking tea and talking about her experience over the previous 12 months.
    Now, four and a half years on, Deborah, who is mum to two children, has raised an incredible amount of awareness of bowel cancer, through writing for The Sun, publishing a book, appearing on national TV, all the while sharing her highs and lows with us all.
    A week ago, Deborah announced that – following a particularly tough six months where she has mostly been in hospital – she is now receiving hospice at home care. She set up The Bowel Babe Fund which, incredibly, raised over £6million in under a week (and counting…) All of this was recognised when she was awarded a Damehood by Prince William.
    You can donate to The Bowel Babe Fund, which is raising vital money for Cancer Research UK, The Royal Marsden Hospital and The Institute of Cancer Research here. We don’t know how much time is left for Deborah but in her words, the fund will help other Deborahs who have cancer.

    Rob Biddulph: Reading to kids, parenting teens and dad bonding

    Rob Biddulph: Reading to kids, parenting teens and dad bonding

    My guest on this episode was one of the nation’s saviours during the first lockdown in 2020. Reacting to a clear need for parents to keep their kids busy and happy while schools were closed, Rob Biddulph started a regular online drawing lesson for kids – Draw With Rob – and the response was huge.
    A dad of three, himself, Rob is the author and illustrator of brilliant picture books for younger kids, like Blown Away and Odd Dog Out, and of his new chapter book for older readers, Peanut Jones and the Illustrated City.
    Rob talks to me about parenting teens and why he still reads to his kids even though they’re older, we talk about father daughter bonding and we talk about what it’s like to have Tom Hardy read one of your books on CBeebies Bedtime Stories…
    Watch Draw With Rob here, follow him on Twitter and Instagram. Find out more about his books here.

    Zain Asher On Her Family's Triumph Over Tragedy

    Zain Asher On Her Family's Triumph Over Tragedy

    CNN anchor and mum of two Zain Asher is my guest on this episode - her book Where The Children Take Us is an incredible memoir with the strong theme of taking the knocks that life gives you and using them to fuel you to succeed.
    The book details her parents’ journey from war-torn Nigeria to South London where they raised their four children. When Zain was five-years-old, tragedy struck and her father was killed in a road accident – an accident that nearly killed her older brother and left her mother to raise four children single-handed.
    Zain tells me how through sacrifices, strength and determination, her mother raised four hugely successful kids, including Zain’s Oscar-nominated actor brother Chiwetel Ejiofor.
    Buy Zain’s book here and follow her on Instagram.

Perfect pod for a Twin Dad to be!

We’ve been on a journey with our soon to be here twins, having gone through IVF and got the news that our one embryo split, to give us double to joy! These will be our first and second child and I have been making my way through as much as this podcast to give me some way of feeling mentally prepared for what’s to come!
I’ve appreciated the openness and honesty of the guests and have bought recommendations, discussed endless scenarios with my wife and sat wondering what on earth I’ve got myself into!
Perfect pod for a dad to be! Whether to know more of what the mum is going though, or to give yourself a bit of a mental advantage!

Life changing

I know ‘life changing’ may sound dramatic for a podcast but this was transformative for me. I have always been against a second baby and listening to Alison and all the amazing woman, topics and insights on this podcast actually pushed me a little and gave me the confidence that I can have another baby! Now pregnant <3
