Welcome to Under The Motherhood Podcast! This is a podcast for, by, and about mothers, discussing all that is involved in producing and raising small humans! Coffees and cakes will accompany us as we leave no topic uncovered.
33. Mama, Where Do Babies Hatch From?
This week we're back for a meet up in our car with a cup of tea and some chocolate to record episode thirty three where we navigate through some of the questions inquisitive little minds want to know about - and how stupid they make you feel when they ask things like 'How do spiders not fall off the walls?' !
We also chat about Playdate Etiquette - if there is such a thing! As always the time flies by with the chats and laughs, pull up a chair, throw on the headphones and stick the kettle on and join us for some more navigation through the fun of motherhood.
Please consider rating us on the Apple Podcast app, we would be so grateful!
Until next week - stay safe!

32. Reunited! The Lockdown Lowdown
We are BACK! At long last, we slowly emerge from lockdown life, slightly dazed and confused! We finally had our lovely reunion, even if it was in a car park with our mics perched in our handbags each clutching our trusty coffee cups in the other hand.
It was great to finally press 'record' again, and off we went, wondering what just happened but ultimately realising that we managed some pretty epic parenting through a very weird situation nobody saw coming.
We hope everyone stayed safe and well - we missed our little corner of the internet but hopefully the worst is over and normal chaotic service can resume!
As always, thanks for listening!
Until next week - although we doubt any of us will ever take that assumption for granted ever again!

31. Who Pissed 2020 Off?!
As we all find ourselves in extraordinary times, we meet up in Kilashee on a Friday night, one day after the government announced closures of schools and colleges.
We chat about the strange times we're in and how we are coping with it, the worry and anxiety it creates, and how we can do our best to stay focused and calm, to help each other as much as possible.
Join us for a cuppa and a chat, as we wonder, just WHO pissed off 2020 and can we have 2019 back please??!
Hopefully we will be back soon, safe and healthy for episode 32 but in the meantime, stay safe, be kind and together we can get through Covid-19

30. Tricky People
Episode 30 is here!
This week we decided to share our best tips around child safety, from teaching them our phone numbers, to best tips for when a child might disappear in a split second as has happened to us all at one time or another.Have you thought about these things, and how to best prepare your children without scaring them in the process? From how using the phrase 'tricky people' might be a better way to describe someone they don't know rather than a 'stranger'... to teaching kids how to access the emergency call option on your mobile, and more in between.
Join us for a coffee and some chats, and let us know what you think? Have you got any good tips to share with us? We would love to hear from you!
29. Whatever Happened To Barry?!
Whatever Happened to Barry?!
Don't worry all will become clear but yes we'd love to know where Barry ended up :)
We are back after yet another break (thank you, Gastro) in the lovely peaceful kid-free Kilashee Hotel. This week it's a long one but we figure we've two weeks to catch up on!
So we have a little catch up and discuss what's happening in our lives and wonder yet again why kids can't just come with a manual?! Not that it would make much difference no doubt!
We also share our birth stories - one is warm and glowy and the other... not so much..!
Thank you for listening! Get in touch, we would love to hear from you, and if you have a second, please do take a moment to leave us a review - we would really appreciate it!
Until next time

28. Not Even The Biscuits Can Save Us
If this podcast has taught us anything, it's that we are absolute masterminds at multi-tasking!
Welcome back to episode twenty-eight where we have the tea and chats flowing! We catch up and congratulate Joanne for her contribution to a newspaper piece on cloth nappies, and then we answer the questions some of you sent to us about what exactly your Public Health Nurse is for - well, when I say 'we', I of course mean Joanne who is a PHN and a wealth of knowledge. Thank you to those who sent us some questions!
We hope you enjoy it and find it useful - and please spare a thought for Jen who had another epic edit job this week - we're sure you're all well used to some episodes being of a choppy nature... we're nothing if not realistic!
As always thank you for listening - please do give us a rating and leave a comment if you like what you hear!
You can get in touch with any feedback or questions through our Instagram page - instagram.co/underthemotherhood or by email at email@example.com
Until next week!
