Welcome to the Being This Mama Hangout podcast!
Hi, I’m Ashleigh. I’m a twenty-something grown up emo kid, I’m a partner to my amazing significant other and I’m a mama to three! After spending a few years convincing myself I wasn’t going to start a podcast, well… I started a podcast. I avoided starting it out of fear: fear of failure, fear of ridicule, fear of many things. One day last year I started to change the conversation: why NOT? So here we are!
The Being This Mama Hangout podcast is a place where we’re having real talks with real people. We’re highlighting the knowledge and expertise we all carry from our lived experiences and education. We’re talking about being parents or choosing not to be one. We’re talking about the ups and downs of mental health, swapping poop stories and chatting about how impossible parenting can feel. We’re talking about balancing work life and home life, what it been like living through a pandemic around the world and the differences in our lives. We’re talking to all types of families, all types of humans (well, all types of humans who align with my values) and sometimes it’s just me talking about what’s on my mind!
