Extremely Helpful

Extremely helpful with lots of fantastic ideas to help you through the most challenging and stressful situations of parenthood. Thank you and keep up the good work 😀❤️

A very positive message

Really enjoyed the episode with Amelia Freer - which was actually less “eat this and everything will be wonderful” than I was expecting (I hadn’t heard of this lady before but assumed that’s what most nutritionists did) Her story and message was like a warm, friendly hug which is lovely at 3am when I’m up feeding my 5 month old and feeling shattered. Googling postnatal depletion tomorrow (after I get some sleep!!)

Brilliant!

As a soon to be dad I've really enjoyed The Parent Hood. I've found it so reassuring to understand what my wife will be going through physically, to hear a mother's perspective on the emotional journey, as well as to listen to the fantastic insights into raising a child and how to approach my own emotions and internal conflicts. I really really recommend this podcast to any new dads.
