Episode 067 – Apologies To My Second Born

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 067 – Apologies To My Second Born

Today I make apologies to my second born daughter.  My new baby who isn’t my only priority like my first born was, is left to cry whilst I look after my other children, and will never experience the intensely close bond of living alone with just me.

Episode 066 – Cuddle Your Children

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 066 – Cuddle Your Children

In this episode I talk about how important it is to cuddle your children, and how even when others are telling you to put your baby down when she cries, hold her.  I talk about how just because your baby is clean and not in pain, their emotional and psychological needs still need meeting.

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.

Tonight I talk about how I’m not someone who’s natural at parenting and I’m not someone who has always felt at home around children.  I discuss the impact it has on me to be raising children when it doesn’t always feel like something I’m good at.
