Parent Pod from BabyCentre - newborn week 8

Update: 2020-02-031


In this week’s episode, we’ll be preparing you for your baby’s first immunisations that are due this month. We’ll also be hearing from Joshua (also known as The Dad He), a dad of two, to find out about his experience of the fourth trimester. Plus - have you mastered the art of making a cup of tea one handed? We talk about how you know you really are getting the hang of this whole parenting thing. And we talk about postnatal bodies and hear how BabyCentre mums feel about theirs since giving birth.

The Parent Pod is hosted by Lucy Toseland-Bolton and Claire Mutimer, both mums to young children and both BabyCentre parents. It is produced by BabyCentre UK and Tin Shed Productions. Download all 48 episodes now.
