EP012 - Pregnancy and becoming a first-time Mum (with Gee)

Life Changes

Feb 22 2024 • 1 hr 30 mins

Gee met her partner Paul through the dating app Bumble. She found out she was pregnant within a few months, and whilst most people were pleased, her father's reaction wasn't what she expected. We discuss hormones, breastfeeding, full-moon babies, birthing plans, how to pick a midwife, right through to travelling with a newborn and trying to maintain a sense of self.

Gee had just moved back from five years in Uganda and found herself locked down in the UK in 2021. She bought a house in the North of England in the July and joined us in August for the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Weekend as a way to meet new people.
