Episode 51. The Decision To Start A Family: Sharing Our Thoughts On Motherhood In The Future

This week we’re exploring a subject close to our hearts: the question of whether or not we’d like to have children, and how we feel about the wider dialogue around that choice. 

Plus . . . ! We are over the moon to be joined by our great friend Wendy Gilmour, of Thankfifi blog, for part of the show. Wendy recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Hunter, into her family. Wendy shares her journey into parenthood, and how her choice wasn’t always clear. 

Every person is different, and your choice surrounding parenthood is uniquely your own. We hope that this episode will resonate with you, and we’d love to hear your thoughts on this subject too.
