The “What is it really like…” series

The series “What is it really like?” explores issues connected with motherhood and parenting which are often not talked about openly enough and/or are not fully understood by many.

To date the series – which takes an “in conversation” format – has covered single motherhood, being a parent to a child with autism, feeling isolation as a new mum, being a two mum family and more…with lots more topics to come.

You can check out the full list of issues below and if you have a suggestion for a topic or are interested to be  interviewed I’d love to hear from you…you can drop me a line at motherhoodtherealdeal AT gmail DOT com.
