226: Kate Lawler on motherhood, mental health and fake tan failures
Our guest for this episode is the fabulous Kate Lawler! She tells us all about her experience of becoming a mum, and how it's our fault she got pregnant in the first place.
We discuss the biggest challenges Kate faced after Noa was born, including coping with post-natal depression. She reveals the things she wishes someone had told her before the birth, and how she's dealt with the pressures parenthood has put on her relationship. As is the custom when new mums meet old hands, we give Kate some unsolicited advice, and we finish off with some tip top Scummy Mummy Confessions.
Kate's brilliant book, Maybe Baby, is out now. Follow her on Instagram @thekatelawler.
