Am I a mother, or just somebody who had a baby? With Pandora Sykes.

Episode 5,  Mar 05, 2021, 12:01 AM

Hello! This week I spoke to the author, podcaster and journalist Pandora Sykes. 
I was thrilled to interview Pandora all about the flattened female identity of motherhood; how we generalise, lump together and dismiss mothers into one homogenous group and how that impacts everyone either thinking about having a baby or who has become a parent. 

Pandora's book, How Do We Know That We’re Doing It Right is already a bestseller and will be out in paperback in May 2021. As well as being an author and journalist, Pandora was the co-host of the phenomenal podcast The High Low, presents podcast The Missing and has her own podcast, Doing It Right.

I was also lucky to talk to Sarah McCullen, Director of Impact and Engagement and the National Childbirth Trust. Sarah and I discussed post-natal mental health, identity and what we can do to hold on to our sense of who we are, while growing another person.
