Meet my wonderful guest this week; Hannah, who is a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit nurse for 13 years, with a small stint as a community children's nurse which included providing on call support to children at the end of their lives in their homes.  You can watch this episode on Youtube: https://youtu.be/Nw1JZhPaPzE

In this episode, we're taking a deep dive into the world of perfectionism and how it plays out in the life of our guest, Hannah, a dedicated nurse in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), as well as in the rollercoaster journey of parenthood. Hannah shares her personal experiences and how she realised that she might be more of a perfectionist than she thought. From her early days in the PICU to becoming a parent, we'll explore how her drive for excellence and high standards have impacted her work, family life, and even her own well-being. Join us for an open conversation about the challenges and rewards of striving for perfection and how it all unfolds in the real world of nursing and parenting. You'll find out that perfectionism isn't always about being perfect but about doing your best and finding a balance that works for you.

Hannah lives on the South coast with her long suffering 😄 husband David, and they have 2 children aged 4 and 2 as well as a charismatic dog called Esme.
