My Newborn Baby

Episode 10,  Apr 18, 2021, 02:33 PM

We're continuing on the childhood theme this week, but this time from the perspective of the parent as we explore the explosion of emotions and intoxicating scent of a newborn baby. But forget nappies and baby powder because it's not quite what you might first think...

Submitted by TV presenter and broadcaster, Alison Bender.

A little note of care, if you have ever experienced the death of a child, or traumatic circumstances surrounding the pregnancy, birth or health of you or your loved one then you may find some of the elements of this story difficult to hear.

If you’ve got a story and scent you want to share with me, write to me at 

And if you want to help support my efforts to keep The Olfactory doors open then I would love it if you could subscribe on your favourite podcast app and leave me a rating and review. Or perhaps share your story there! I’d love to hear it. 

Thanks for keeping me company.
