Here at MummyPages, we've always prided ourselves on being honest when it comes to navigating the world of parenting. Raising a child is an extraordinary journey; one filled with the highs of wonderment and awe and the lows of exhaustion and sometimes, the loneliness that can come with raising our little ones. For all the moments of joy, certainly modern parenthood comes with more pressures than ever before. Talking about our personal journeys and sharing our #mumtruths is definitely one way to help us find our own path through motherhood and our new podcast series aims to do just that. No need to stop what you're doing - just pop in your earphones anywhere, anytime to allow your head and your heart to take a moment just for you.
A parenting podcast with a difference
That's where our 'new arrival' comes in: We're delighted to introduce #MumTruths, our new podcast series created to discuss the honesty sometimes lacking in the sharing of our collective parenting journey.
Presented weekly by our mum-in-residence (and mum of two) Laura Erskine and broadcaster (and mum to two little ones) Suzanne Kane, we'll invite parents and experts to shine a light on the experiences and dilemmas experienced by so many mums (and dads).
Introduction to #MumTruths:
Here Laura and Suzanne introduce our new parenting podcast. Meet Laura Erskine, mum of two (almost 3) and the Mum-in-Residence for MummyPages and Suzanne Kane, broadcaster and more importantly mum of two little people. In this short introduction to #mumtruths the brand new Podcast series brought to you by MummyPages, Laura and Suzanne discuss the honesty sometimes lacking in the sharing of our collective parenting journey, and also invite mums (and dads) to share their personal parenting insights and experiences with our listeners.
