Your host - Alison Newman

Hi there I'm Alison, its so great to have you here!

I'm a mum of 2 boys and a singer/
songwriter, so I know first hand how challenging it can be to balance your role as a mother with the intense need to create.

I started this podcast to reach out to other creative mums, in a time of my own crisis, to see how they were handling things, but since then it has turned into so much more.

The aim now being -  to support mammas to see the value in their creating and to try to support them to know that they are not alone - and break down a few patriarchal stereotypes along the way.

Since July 2020, I have released an episode each week, and built a thriving community of likeminded and supportive women online. What we are doing is shining a light on the stories of mothers, giving them a voice and reminding society that they are have value outside of their mothering roles.
