    Rev Kate Bottley On Faith, Raising Teens & Being A Working Mum

    Rev Kate Bottley On Faith, Raising Teens & Being A Working Mum

    What could be more Christmassy than ending this series of the podcast chatting to the person who will be keeping the nation company while we open our presents on Christmas Day? Rev Kate Bottley – who will be on Radio 2 from 8am-10am on December 25th – was a total joy to have on as a guest.


    The mum of two and Church of England priest entered the public eye when she was a regular on Channel 4’s Gogglebox and has since been seen on Songs Of Praise, Pause For Thought and presenting Radio 2’s Good Morning Sunday.


    Kate is such a breath of fresh air, when it comes to religion, and we chat about how her faith has influenced her parenting. She talks to me about raising teenagers, preparing her daughter for university and about navigating life with her son who is on the autistic spectrum.


    You can listen to Kate on Radio 2’s Good Morning Sunday here, follow her on Twitter and follow her on Instagram.

    Jess Jones On Having Tokophobia

    Jess Jones On Having Tokophobia

    It’s probably fair to say that most women, when they’re pregnant, are a bit apprehensive about the birth. I know I was! Especially when it’s your first pregnancy, it’s totally normal to feel worried or even a bit scared about what childbirth will be like.


    But my guest on this episode – blogger and comedian Jess Jones aka The Fat Funny One – developed such a fear of giving birth, during her first pregnancy, she was diagnosed with Tokophobia.


    Tokophobia is an irrational and extreme fear of childbirth, and although it’s a very rare mental health condition, it can leave sufferers reluctant to get pregnant, or if – like Jess – they’re pregnant when it develops, it can result in panic attacks, anxiety and more.


    Jess talks to me about what it feels like, how it manifested itself and how she approached subsequent pregnancies in a way that tackled the Tokophobia.


    You can find out more about Tokophobia here, follow Jess on Instagram and buy tickets for her comedy tour. We talk about The Positive Birth Company, Milli Hill and Mars Lord in the episode.

    Jo Middleton & Tanya Barrow On Becoming A Grandparent

    Jo Middleton & Tanya Barrow On Becoming A Grandparent

    What’s it like to become a grandparent? My guests on this episode are Jo Middleton – who recently became a grandmother - and Tanya Barrow – who will shortly become a grandmother. Both women have spent the last 25 or so years being a mum, and the last ten years blogging about motherhood. Tanya runs the award-winning blog Mummy Barrow and Jo runs the award-winning blog Slummy Single Mummy.


    I chat to them both about what it’s like to have that big shift in identity – mother to grandmother – and how they manage to be supportive, but not over-bearing. So much has changed since they last had babies, so does that present a problem when giving advice to their daughters?


    We also talk about sharing the stories of our children (and grandchildren) online – what’s appropriate and fair to them?


    You can check out Jo’s blog here, buy her book Playgroups & Prosecco here, and follow her on Twitter and Instagram. You can check out T’s blog here, and follow her on Twitter and Instagram.

    Eve Rodsky On Rebalancing Emotional Labour

    Eve Rodsky On Rebalancing Emotional Labour

    Do you have total equality in the home? Do you manage to divide domestic and childcare tasks fairly between you and your partner? If your answers are yes, you get a massive gold star and you don’t need to listen to this episode of the podcast! If, however, you feel like things are a bit imbalanced and one of you does a lot more than your fair share, this episode is for you.


    My guest this week is Eve Rodsky, who embarked on a seven year research project after she realised that there is a massive imbalance in most homes, with the woman often bearing the brunt of the domestic tasks and childcare duties, regardless of whether she has a job outside of the home. So Eve created a game which will revolutionise how you allocate these tasks, and in her book Fair Play, she talks through how the game works, and how it will help you.


    In this episode – her only podcast interview while visiting the UK - I chat to Eve about why this is such a problem for women and how the Fair Play game works.


    Buy Fair Play here, and read more about Eve on her website. You can also download Fair Play cards here.

    Kate Dyson On Mum Judgement And Why She Hates Mum Mantras

    Kate Dyson On Mum Judgement And Why She Hates Mum Mantras

    My guest on this episode, Kate Dyson, is the founder of the biggest online community for women – The Motherload. Started with just a few friends, when Kate received an unhelpful response on an online forum for mums, it has grown to be the place that 84,000 women head to for non-judgemental chat about motherhood.


    As a mum of three, Kate has a lot to say about communities for mums and tells me about the huge support and kindness she sees on The Motherload. We talk about the importance of ‘finding your tribe’ online, when you have a baby, because we don’t always have people on our street or down the road, to rely on for help.


    Kate and I also discuss mum mantras – are they a welcome source of support or are they a device to shut down conversation and dismiss valid concerns?


    You can find The Motherload on Facebook and follow Kate on Instagram.

    Binky Felstead On Being Mum Shamed

    Binky Felstead On Being Mum Shamed

    I’m thrilled to welcome Binky Felstead onto the podcast this week! Binky shot to fame when she appeared on TV show Made In Chelsea and two years ago, she became a mum to her daughter India.


    It was so lovely to chat to Binky and we covered a lot of ground - her parenting style, how she’s keen to have a relaxed approach but with fairly strict boundaries and what she thinks she’s learned from her own mum – the good and the bad!


    We talk about her new relationship with her partner Max, and how she’s navigated that, as a mum. Binky also tells me about her experiences of being mum shamed  - something so many of us have experienced, whether it’s a social media comment from someone being a bit snooty about you giving your kid fish fingers, or how much screen time they’re having.


    You can follow Binky on Instagram, check out her Mummy Tribe retreats and take a look at the Bubble babysitting app she mentions.


    Here’s a link to the blog post I mention, on kids using tech and parental controls.
