Podcast Day - Eek! 😱 THIS was nerve wracking. It’s hard to believe that I hate the sound of my own voice right? 🤣 But I’m an animated character so voice alone makes me cringe. Was an absolute pleasure to be able to feature on the @cheltenhammaman podcast ‘Good Mum Bad Mum’, talking all things motherhood, work and social media. From the story of how I came to test for Huntington’s Disease after an unplanned pregnancy to fan girling over @mrsgifletcher and @tomfletcher, there’s plenty to listen to. .
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: How I conducted my journey with HD was completely my own, and as I’ve said so many times before, I pass NO judgement on how others choose to deal with it. It’s a totally personal choice. Whether it’s testing or not, having a family or not, I am team ‘you’. Testing yourself or testing your baby are two extremely difficult decisions, and whilst I found the concept of an amniocentesis a position I wanted to avoid if I could, I fully support those who choose that as their path, or find themselves in that position without choosing to be. We very nearly found ourselves there at 25 weeks with Freddie after he was diagnosed with a VSD and it was just like test day all over again. There is no right and wrong and I don’t wish that decision on anyone. Life puts us all in some unimaginable positions and we all just do our best. It’s something I assume people know sometimes and can forget to say out loud (which is surprising seeing as I never shut up) 😬😋 Anyway, no judgement here, ever. I hope you enjoy it ❤️ (Link in bio)
