    Untangling Mother-Daughter Relationships, With Rosjke Hasseldine And Carina White

    Untangling Mother-Daughter Relationships, With Rosjke Hasseldine And Carina White

    When it comes to mother-daughter relationships, it’s complicated: some are best friends, others aren’t on speaking terms, while some daughters still revert to acting like a teenager around their mum even though they’re way too old to throw a strop (hiya!).


    Why is it so tricky to find the right balance? We speak to Rosjke Hasseldine, who has spent almost 25 years working with women and researching the mother-daughter relationship, to find out. 


    We’re also joined by Carina White, co-founder of Black Mums Upfront, and her aunt Eleanor, who helped raise her after her mother tragically passed away. Their warmth, admiration and mutual respect is inspiring – but we learn it hasn’t always been easy.

    The Truth About Childbirth, with Midwife Marley and Clotilde Rebecca Abe

    The Truth About Childbirth, with Midwife Marley and Clotilde Rebecca Abe

    The first rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. Often it feels like the same principle applies when it comes to giving birth – the majority of women have little or no clue what to expect until they are pregnant and, well, then it’s a bit late. 


    For our first episode of 2021 we wanted to change that, having an open and, yes, at times, uncomfortable conversation about giving birth. We speak to Midwife Marley about the realities of birth and hear from Clotilde Rebecca Abe, co-founder of the Five x More project, about the fact that Black women are five times more likely to die during childbirth.
