Episode 062 – Hands Up, Who’s Struggling?

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 062 – Hands Up, Who’s Struggling?

In tonight’s episode I talk about how important it is that we talk about it when we’re finding it hard.  How sharing your fears and vulnerabilities will ensure we don’t feel alone and can welcome the help we need from others around us, and how we weren’t supposed to go through the stress and worry of child rearing alone.
