This week I’ve been listening to Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast Happy Mum Happy Baby each episode is about an hour and it’s just a very down-to-earth conversation with public people who are also parents. I really liked the recent episode with Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain. You can watch the YouTube video of it here

“I felt like I had one identity — and it was mom, and that was it. And I had never been a mom before, and I just felt really empty. I felt like a shell of myself.
