A Womb of One's Own

Welcome to A Womb of One’s Own with Sarah-Jane Crawford. This is a podcast about our experiences and feelings navigating our ambitions and our proverbial biological clocks. Through a set of candid interviews with amazing, successful and high-profile women, we eggsplore a taboo subject familiar to so many of us. Funny, intimate, and always honest, each episode explores women’s lives in their entirety but unlike other podcasts we also discuss one issue our guests have experienced around their fertility. By sharing never-heard before stories, A Womb of One's Own aims to normalise conversations about our bodies and how they work for us as we work to have it all. This podcast is a space to help everyone, feel like they can be part of the conversation and engage with their fertility wherever they are in their lives and journeys. On this podcast we share the stories, the knowledge and the truths women need to know (with the help of experts as well) to help you feel like you can take ownership of your fertility without feeling worried, or defined, by your ability to have a child or be a parent. And we know that every person’s journey is different; so whether you want a child, are not sure if you want kids, are experiencing your own fertility and health challenges, want kids later on in life or don't think you want children - we promise - this podcast is for you. A Womb of One’s Own is an independent podcast co-created by Emmy Award-winning presenter and broadcaster Sarah-Jane Crawford and award-winning producer and executive producer Clarissa Pabi; and this is their first baby/podcast together. The Host is Sarah-Jane Crawford, the Producer and Executive Producer is Clarissa Pabi, Sound Design by Clarissa Pabi, Artwork by Naomi Gennery, Mixing and Engineering by Kate McGinn, and original music by Aiwan Obinyan. The podcast is an all women production. "It takes a village to raise a child/make a podcast" ancient African proverb.

Emma Thynn, Marchioness of Bath

In today’s episode Sarah-Jane Crawford speaks to the very fabulous Emma Thynn, Marchioness of Bath, the first Black Marchioness in British history. Yes my darling she’s an aristocrat but one that I feel you can really get to know and chat with on a real down to earth level.In this conversation Emma shares many personal things about how she became the woman she is today including her incredible journey to becoming a mum to two sons. In particular she opens up on details around her very scary first pregnancy, the diagnosis that she received and subsequently how she and her husband made the decision to work with a surrogate who helped them to complete their family.And we couldn’t let her escape without pinning her down for some information about what it’s really like to run one of the most famous stately homes in the country, Longleat. Enjoy !

Hayley Tamaddon

On this week’s episode of A Womb of One’s Own we discuss a really important topic: having children later on in life and we discuss it with the amazing actress Hayley Tammadon! Sarah-Jane reached out to Hayley after reading an inspirational article where she had shared her story about becoming a mother after suffering from a miscarriage. At the time of reading Sarah had herself suffered a loss, and wanted to believe that she could get pregnant again and have her first baby, so given that Hayley did all of this at the age of 42, it gave her hope.Hayley shares her experience of prioritising her career, and her fertility journey, as well as how having a miscarriage, although painful, taught her that she could conceive. We discuss the importance of positivity, as well as honesty, around the reality of how challenging it can be to become a new mum.
