Happy Mum, Happy Baby: The Podcast
Series 5 out now!
I wrote a book called Happy Mum, Happy Baby. I was overwhelmed by the amount of emails and messages I received in response. I didn't want the conversation to end there, so I decided to start a podcast where I invited others to share their experiences.
The series will be a collection of frank and warm conversations with high-profile mums and dads. We'll be discussing all aspects of parenthood - the highs, the lows, the challenges and rewards. There is no such thing as the perfect parent. Instead, we’re all simply doing our best. It’s time to stop comparing ourselves and champion each other instead. Each episode will be truly unique yet unifying. No topic is out of bounds, and I hope the podcast and supporting video will be essential viewing for any parent seeking solidarity and support.
My bedding collection with Next
Out now, available exclusively at Next online
I’m not sure about you, but I love sleep. It’s one of my favourite things to do – which is pretty ironic seeing as I don’t get much of it these days. In the newborn stages with Max bed was somewhere I’d long to be – snuggled up under the duvet and having a straight five hours sounded like heaven. Seeing as I couldn’t actually do that, I started dreaming up ideas for the bedding I’d love to be climbing into.
Happy Mum, Happy Baby Live
When we first took our show to a live audience I didn’t know what it would be like. In the recording studio I can hear every breath of my guests and it’s incredibly intimate - I didn’t know how inviting an audience along to be a part of those chats would change things... would it stop them sharing? Make them filter themselves or invite self-doubt? Well, I needn’t have worried because what happens is there’s a feeling of support and community in the room which is so beautiful and empowering.
