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.
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.
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.
The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 052 – Not The Best Mum I Can Be
Tonight I talk about how mums are always told that as long as you’re doing your best, that’s enough. But how sometimes I don’t do my best, because sometimes I need to just be selfish. Sometimes I just need time for myself.
The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 040 – Am I Joyce?
Tonight I talk about Joyce Summers, the TV mum I always swore I would never grow up to be… but how I have recently realised I’m actually mirroring a lot of her behaviour! Ironic really, considering I have a daughter named Buffy.
The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 037 – Keep You Near
I talk about how as a little girl I would always want to sneak into my mum’s bed, and how my daughter is now mirroring that behaviour. I question whether it’s best to let her in, or to try and establish a more stable sleep routine.

TRIGGER WARNING – Discussions of Post Natal Depression and Suicide.
I discuss the dangerous nature of PND, how it ruins lives if left untreated, and how mothers all need to be aware both of themselves and the women in their lives to help catch this killer before it takes someone else we love.
