As a first time mom, what has your experience been like with the parenting advice that has come your way since commencing your parenting journey? Have you found it helpful, poor or a bit of both?

Today, like in every episode, I’m bringing you an amazing woman, Jess. Jess was frustrated after becoming a first time mom, giving birth to her daughter during COVID, so much so, that it led her to launching her own podcast, called Modern Nurture, to help support other mums.

During our chat you’ll hear Jess talk about her experiences during her early stages as a first time mom including:-

  • Her biggest frustrations when she commenced her parenting journey.
  • Two books which helped her understand her little one better and learn about co-sleeping.
  • How massaging her daughter helped relax her and relieve some tummy issues.
