Ali and Emma are back this week with one of the main topics that bonds parents…..SLEEP and sleep deprivation! Who doesn't love and NEED to sleep. Without enough sleep the human brain cannot function properly. Ali and Emma share their experiences with sleep from newborn to toddler, how children can be polar opposite, the importance of turning off the noise and tuning in to what works for you and your family. For your children and YOU’RE sleep/sanity!Ali and Emma go on to talk about how lack of sleep, sleep deprivation, and the introduction of a baby can hugely impact relationships, which can leave us in total shock at such a vulnerable time. Just how can we meet each others needs and the needs of a tiny newborn baby?Mentioned podcasts:The Don’t Buy Her Flowers Podcast with Steph DouglasAlso listen to Steph and I’s chat on Mum Talk back in 2019 here!Dirty Mother Pukka with Anna Whitehouse and guest Kate Lawler Please rate, review and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.Find Ali and Emma here:Mum Talk InstagramAli Bastian Instagram Hosted on Acast.

Emma is back with a brand new series and brand new conversation with her CO-HOST Ali Bastian, who you may recognise from hit TV shows, Hollyoaks, The Bill and Strictly Come Dancing. Ali and Emma are in the thick of motherhood and are here to deep dive into it all with you. Motherhood changes you as a person, physically and mentally, it seems (from personal experience)to give you the most incredible sense of purpose, self-worth and strength you didn’t know you had, whilst simultaneously leading you to question your ‘self’ and more or less everything you have ever known. Ali and Emma have one goal, as it has always been from the beginning of Mum Talk almost 5 years ago, to share in the hope no-one ever feels alone in motherhood. Ali and Emma are here for it all, the highs, the lows, the journey that is motherhood, the realities of building a family, life, love, laughter, tears, heartbreak you name it. Grab a cuppa or pop your headphones in and head out for a walk, join Ali and Emma for ‘hearts on sleeves’ mum talk and journey through motherhood together.
