Mum’s Back in the Media

TV & Radio

In July I was invited to the Channel 5 News Studio to discuss the pressures pregnant women are under to eat properly whilst pregnant, in their live show. Check out the clip here

Throughout June I was working with NCT on their Hidden Half campaign to raise awareness and improve services for those suffering with postnatal depression.

On 22nd June I was interviewed about my experiences by Channel 5 News. Here is the clip:

On 28th June I was interviewed on Rutland Radio. You can listen to the clip here:

On 15th August I was so chuffed to be featured by The Guardian in a feature about people that did badly in their A Levels, but are doing well now. Of course, I mentally high fived my misspent youth for this article. You can read it here

 

On 10th August I discovered that I had been nominated and short listed for a Women Leaders 2017” Award, in the ‘Female Entrepreneur’ category. A lovely surprise. There are interviews and further judging in September, culminating in an Awards Dinner where the winner will be announced on November 10th. Watch this space!

I wrote a blog for the fabulous Motherload about a rather shitty experience I had of random verbal abuse, ironically when I was on my way to Channel 5 Studios to be interviewed live about pressures women are under.  You can read about the pretty horrible and sexist experience, and my reflections on it, here.

July 2017

I was absolutely delighted to be interviewed by the incredible Honest Mum as part of her #wonderfulwomen series, which has included the likes of Emma Bunton, Alesha Dixon, Caprice and Cerys Matthews. An absolute honour! Check out the interview here

The Dad Website, based in Australia, liked the piece that I wrote for my lovely husband on Father’s Day, and featured me in their own special edition http://thedadwebsite.com/2017/06/husband-fathers-day/

This piece for Selfish Mother gives hints and tips on the top 10 meals to eat whilst baby trapped. Those that have had newborn velcro babies will appreciate that the struggle is real! http://www.selfishmother.com/10-one-handed-meals-for-baby-trapped-parents/

I’m a big fan of the Facebook group The Motherload, and I wrote a blog for them about my experience of PND, particularly relating to my feelings of anger and shame. It was a tricky and emotional blog to write, but I’m pleased it helped to raise awareness and help people feel less alone https://the-motherload.co.uk/shame-pnd-anger-demons/
