The Working Mumma podcast supports working mums in managing motherhood and a career with tips, interviews with experts and sharing stories so you can thrive.

As a working mum, I know it can feel lonely and isolating in wanting to have a career and be a mum. We get so much help when we are pregnant and in the fourth trimester, but the slowly falls away. When we are looking to return to paid work after maternity leave, we are faced with many questions, doubts, low confidence levels and so much more. Not all companies actively support working mums and navigating the path as a working mum can be a little like riding a rollercoaster.

On the Working Mumma podcast, I bring you real-life tips, tricks, and advice to help you in having a career and being a working mum. I speak with experts and bring you solo episodes on my own experiences to help you navigate motherhood and a successful career.

Over the journey of the Working Mumma podcast, I have interviewed women (and one man) on their topic of expertise and in every episode I ask guests to describe themselves, their career journey so far, and what they do for self-care.

I have learned so much along the way and love bringing you the podcast each week.
