COME SEE NOT ANOTHER MUMMY PODCAST LIVE! On Friday 18th October, I’ll be recording an episode about parenthood and alcohol with guests Rosamund Dean, author of the book Mindful Drinking and deputy editor of Grazia magazine, and Clemmie Telford, mum of three who recently decided to stop drinking alcohol. It’s all happening at Redemption, a really cool alcohol free bar in London’s Covent Garden and it kicks off at 9am, but you can get there after the school run because the actual recording won’t start until 9.45am. Buy tickets here!
Now onto this episode….
What do you think about, when you hear the term ‘single mum’? My guest on this episode thinks we’ve got a long way to go, when it comes to how single mums are represented and talked about.
Remi Sadé is a writer and podcaster who, age 22 and during her first year of university, became pregnant. Fast forward three years and she is a single mum, raising her daughter. She talks to me about her experiences, from putting herself through A Levels age 21 and while working, getting into uni, and about having ante-natal depression and post-natal depression following a traumatic birth. This lady has been through a lot.
You can follow Remi on Instagram, listen to the podcast she co-hosts Alright For A Mum and check out her writing here. You can also listen to the BBC Woman’s Hour episode she appears on, and mentions, here.
