In this one I talk about some unfortunate epiphany's I've had about my personality; my fears that the kids will inevitably be influenced by other kids/sugar/technology, our family trip to Edinburgh festival and my toddlers new "hobby" of BITING EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING.
In this episode I talk about a spontaneous Edinburgh trip to see Alfie because the baby (I) missed him too much, how having a baby impacts a relationship, Edinburgh festival nostalgia, and most importantly a EBF CONSTIPATION UPDATE.... thanks to everyone who sent me wonderful advice on Instagram on how to get things going!
In this one I talk about how our holidays are going with various summer camps... I continue to battle sleep deprivation and wonder if it's time to stop EBF'ing my giant baby. it's world breastfeeding week so I TALKED A LOT ABOUT BREASTFEEDING!
In this one I am a little more positive for a change! I talk about coming to terms with sleep deprivation and the constant temperatures and lack of “me time”…. I have a little baby on me between constant feeding - EBF! EBF! - so please excuse the little sounds and hiccups.
In this one I talk a little bit about sadness, how I’m trying to find my way in the mess and chaos and beauty… I also update on the madness of taking the baby to first filming job back since birth, and my toddlers addiction to blackcurrant and apple squash.
In this one I gave you an update about my ant infestation ( which may gross some people out ) and I reflect on my first week away from the elder kids with work. I discuss the importance of being confident when asking for breaks to breastfeed and think about different parenting styles ( as i often do ) after reading about Gentle Parenting.
in this one I talk about a forthcoming work trip which i'm a little worried about, given that it's the first job postpartum. I think about why I might be an "attachment parent" and also wail about our ant infestation.
in this one I answer your questions as quickly as I can before the baby starts crying... we cover topics such as BREASTFEEDING IN PUBLIC, THE HARDEST TRANSITIONS, THE NAME GAME, NURSERY GUILT and more. thank you so much for your questions and support, for extra content please become a patron - the video of this podcast can be seen there. patreon.com/cavesisters
Alfie joins me again to talk about his grand return home after 6 weeks working in Australia. We talk the Kardashian’s (and my take on Gwyneth Paltrow), breastfeeding, why I feel quite special when pregnant and how much I feel the connection with the unborn, our new “family of 6” and what values we want to install in the kids, and about how Alfie feels in general about babies.
This week I talk about half-term, the baby's first smile, toddlers saying 'Mama' and my fear of losing a sense of myself in the haze of having a newborn. Extra content available on patreon.com/cavesisters ... Thanks so much for listening.
In this one I talk about my mild OCD that has gone into overdrive since Alfie has returned, having a less than satisfactory experience at the GP for the official 8 week postpartum check up, and how it’s been going back to co-sleeping with my toddler and the baby.
In this one I spoke about new developments in our co-sleeping arrangement, worrying about the temperature constantly, and mini-breakthroughs that come with settling into a routine now that the baby is 7 weeks old.I also share a motivational list that I wrote in my diary, celebrate my mum and say the word “overwhelmed” TWICE within the first 30 seconds.
this is podcast of two halves - the first half is largely about parent guilt, hormones, feeding the ducks and trying to get my kids to be piano prodigy's.. the second is about a rather scary recent hospital stay, and trying to get my toddler into a routine that doesn't involve a bottle of milk!thank you for listening, diary entries on patreon.com/cavesisters
In this one I discuss the ongoing saga of blocked nipple ducts, mastitis and bleeding postpartum. I received so many helpful messages about what to do with mastitis and clogged ducts and so many people telling me WHAT PADS ARE THE BEST and I wanted to say thank you on the podcast to them too. Oh and I also rant a bit about television I’m watching whilst breastfeeding, my toddler turning 18 months and how much I depend on Mr Tumble.
This is a very short podcast during which the baby hiccuped throughout. I talk about the paranoia that comes with having a newborn, how his siblings have welcomed him and how many episodes of Bing we have watched during the Easter holidays. From next week the podcast will be bi-weekly and you can also read my newborn diary entries at patreon.com/cavesisters X

In this one I talk about my impending induction and packing an emergency hospital bag, something I've never done before. I talk about signs of early labour and my desperate desire to clean EVERYTHING before the baby (hopefully) comes home.
I talk to the father of my children and hopefully my boyfriend Alfie Brown about: what it’s like to accidentally have a baby with mewhat it’s like to plan a baby with me how he feels about birth / how I apparently hit him during labour if he has any advice for new fathers / what it’s like having a baby during the pandemic our shared love of crystals and astrology (jokes that’s just me)
In this episode I talk about collective anxiety and fear due world events and how I broach these conversations with my kids. I also have an update on my baby’s growth and the ongoing saga of pregnancy nausea xxx
I wanted to talk to my sister about her views on motherhood and what it’s like to be an aunty to 3 from quite a young age. Our age gap of 10 years is quite special. Sometimes I worry when I complain about certain aspects of motherhood I might be putting her off, so this was a really honest and insightful chat for both of us.
In this one I talk about the controversial topic of leaving your baby to cry in order to get into a sleep "routine", my career worries and frustrations and fears, the Continuum Concept, how much I love my mum, and give a mini-review on book i've just finished on motherhood that annoyed me. I've just recovered from norovirus so i'm a bit more hormonal and swear more than usual sorry!
In this one I talk about our recent Legoland half term experience, paranoia about accidents with the bump, what it’s like to have a Hollywood wax when heavily pregnant and why we choose to cover the elder kids faces in photos online.
In this one I talk about sex during pregnancy and postpartum. How to accept your changing body, embrace it and enjoy the perks like new boobs. I also discuss covid, the wonder of Mumsnet threads and open my new amazon valentine's day packages.
In this one I talk about going into triage and how important it is to be checked if you are at all worried. I also share my thoughts/hopes for classy naked pregnancy shoots, upcoming half-term anxiety and general mum guilt.
This episode I talk about feeding, every conceivable type of feeding. Breast, formula and even wet nurses. The joy, the stress and everything in between. If you enjoy the episode please share and or review. Thank you, bye!
I wasn't happy with my intro so Donnie had a go and I think he did very well. I think we've sorted the audio trouble we had previously. If we haven't please tell my hot-shot producer Alfie to get his act together. Today I speak about co-sleeping. I hope you enjoy.
Maintaining your creative or work life during pregnancy, or during motherhod for that matter. And also the story of my 3rd birth. A big end to the trilogy. Please leave a review if you have enjoyed these first three podcasts. Please don't if you haven't!
