Episode 5 – What happens when all your friends have kids and you don’t?

In this episode we share our experience of all the friendships that have been lost to motherhood over the years. If you are a mum and you’re listening we’d love to hear your thoughts on your friendships with childless women and if they fell to the wayside or how you maintained them.

In Shit that comes up on our Feed, Jo is angry (surprise!) over a recent IVF TV ad.

Question of the Week: Childless women – how did you maintain your friendships with those who became mums?
