S2 Ep18 - The Season Finale with Giovanna Fletcher

Podcast cover
Read more

This is it! The last episode of season 2 of Maybe Baby and we're signing off with a megastar.

2020 really was the year of Giovanna Fletcher. Whether it was interviewing the Duchess of Cambridge on her hit podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby or winning I'm A Celeb or releasing not one but two books - she's a force of nature but one with the sunniest disposition.

We're so glad she could make time for us to chat about her lessons from motherhood for us but also what it was like to be the mother in the castle - and how you may as well have five kids! (Spoiler - we won't be).

You can find Gi's latest books below:

S2 Ep17 - How Prepared Are We?

Podcast cover
Read more

We're closing in on the finish line and for all the talk, the discussion, the interviews - how ready are we, actually?

We've had 8 months to get ready - do we have all we need for Nuchky? Can we feed her? Can we transport her? Do we know what we're doing? It's also a good chance to air our weekly grievances as you realise that having a baby puts a sharp focus on your relationship and how you get on with each other.

With the birth just 3 weeks away, it's time to get our sh*t together properly and ensure we're ready for her arrival.

S2 Ep16 - The First Twelve Months with Ellie Taylor

Podcast cover
Read more

One question that has been on our minds for a while now is how tough will those first twelve months be? Every journey is different for every woman but if you're going to ask anyone, why not ask an award-winning comedian who's literally written a book about it.

Enter Ellie Taylor, who is as honest and funny as you would expect. We cover how she changed her mind from being ambivalent to becoming a mother, the struggles she faced in the first few months and a story that may literally be out of Something About Mary.

Ellie's book "My Child and Other Mistakes: How to ruin your life in the best way possible" is available for pre-order from Amazon - you can find it at https://www.amazon.co.uk/My-Child-Other-Mistakes-possible/dp/1529362997.

This episode is part-third trimester and part-therapy as we reach the business end of the pregnancy. Be ready to hear all the gory details but also a healthy dose of Boj vs Kate as we air our (very petty, very minor) recent grievances.

Be it tidying up, shouting at 3am or facing up the realities of giving birth in the height of the pandemic, getting closer to the date brings its added tensions as the nerves kick in.

S2 Ep14 - Baby Sleep Tips with Rosey Davidson

Podcast cover
Read more

Children and sleep. It seems to be the main topic for so many parents wrangling with stubborn sleepers and it can have a major impact on the welfare of both parents and children. So to head off that little disaster, we called on Rosey Davidson AKA Just Chill Mama, sleep consultant extraordinaire to help us out of any potential jam.

We talk about sleep and a whole lot more, covering feeding, swaddling and the ever-divisive Gina Ford. It's a must-listen for any parents-to-be (saying that as people who found it super useful!)

You can find out more about Rosey and her company at justchillbabysleep.co.uk - you can also find her on Instagram under @just_chill_mama

S2 Ep12 - Flexible Working with Mother Pukka

Podcast cover
Read more

Becoming a mother is one of the single biggest factors behind women dropping out of the work force - but why don't do we do something to stop 50% of our workforce potentially disappearing?

It's something very much on Kate's mind which is why we brought Mother Pukka (aka Anna Whitehouse) onto the show to discuss how she's been campaigning for workplaces to offer more flexibility and the impact of the pandemic on the campaign. But of course, we cover so much more - on how Anna & her husband Matt have written three books together, how they keep the spark alive after having children and we even get to meet the family.

We’re finally here - it’s gender reveal time! The most tricky part of this has been keeping it a secret and we’ve both accidentally let slip at least once or twice (cue a frantic comment delete or swearing work colleagues to secrecy over the last few months).

Not a title we'd ever imagine having to use but that's 2020 for you. We're very excited to introduce the second guest for this season's Maybe Baby, Sky broadcaster Sarah-Jane Mee.

With a second lockdown in place in one shape or form across the UK, we wanted to talk to someone who'd experienced pregnancy and birth in these heavily restricted times.

From baby showers over Zoom to pre-eclampsia complications, Sarah-Jane's unique experiences are a very modern tale of pregnancy in a pandemic and with some handy pointers for Kate, we hope you all find this as hugely insightful as we did.

Moving house - it's one of the main things the universe obliges you to do when you have a kid on the way. You start worrying about things like storage or schools and all of a sudden, you're walking around a garden centre admiring their range of tomato plants on a Sunday morning.

As you can guess, this week's episode is about us joining the chase for space as we prepare to welcome the poop nugget into the world. We share tips on how to survive a house move, why we're already bad parents (to our dogs) and why moving this time was infinitely better than last time.

(Outtakes at the end just because)

We're very excited to welcome our first guest onto Season 2 of Maybe Baby - the wonderful, animal-loving Gemma Atkinson.

With so many thoughts and questions about having a baby when you already have two of the furry kind, we thought Gemma was the perfect guest for this episode. 

How do we introduce the baby to the dogs? When will they start to form a bond? Will our relationship change with the dogs once the poop nugget arrives?

Gemma has some great tips for anyone on a similar journey and tells us why she thought she'd end up with a family of hounds rather than humans and why Gorka might need to stock up on antihistamines.

It's a big moment in any couple's pregnancy - the moment when you first see your baby. This was a time of both joy & trepidation for us, as we both wanted to see our new team member but naturally, we experienced all the fears about the baby’s health that come with any pregnancy.

Find out how we got on and also how we settled on ‘poop nugget’ for our baby’s name while in the womb - oh, and why you shouldn't experiment with fashion online.

Why didn't anyone tell us the first trimester was going to be so hard?

Ok, lots of people did but we didn't listen. From fibbing to family & friends, feeling hungover despite not drinking alcohol, to craving fish finger sandwiches for breakfast, the first 12 weeks are an emotional rollercoaster that we certainly didn't prepare for.

So here's us letting you know what to expect if you've not yet done it; or if you have, hopefully you can relate/laugh at our naivety.

S2 Ep1 - And so the adventure begins...

Podcast cover

If you followed us in season 1, you'll know we spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to do about our conception conundrum. Should we? Shouldn't we? Could we, even?

Time ticked on and as things changed for both us and the world, Kate realised it was maybe time to give it a go. This season is her & Boj's story, going from pregnancy to birth with some guests along the way to help offer advice, so we don't completely balls it up.

Episode 1 is all about the journey to conception - is there anyway of stopping our parents from listening? You'll hear about what helped change Kate's mind, how it happened and why you shouldn't just throw a pregnancy test at your partner without warning.

We'll be getting more audience involvement in the coming weeks so send us an email to maybebabycast@gmail.com. If you listen on iTunes/Apple Podcasts, leave us a review as we'll be reading some out each week.

"And now, the end is near, so I face the final curtain"

Bit dramatic but we are reaching the conclusion of season 1 of Maybe Baby, so forgive us if we're a bit sad to see the end.

We were wracking our brains for what to do as a final episode when we hit upon the idea of interviewing each other - we thought it'd help us see what's changed and how we feel now.

So tune in to find out:

  • Which guest we'd want to babysit our child
  • What features we'd choose from each other for our child (and our parents!)
  • Some hot-takes on private school


And a lot more! And listen in to the end to find out our plans for the future...
