Real Talk with Real Mums

?Real Talk with Real Mums? is a 10-episode podcast series looking at the issues of everyday pregnancy with medical professionals and the real women who have gone through the pregnancy journey. Each episode of c.30 minutes will tackle a different topic, from exercise in pregnancy (with a Physiotherapist), to mental health issues in pregnancy (with a Mental Health Midwife.). The aim of each podcast is to provide mums with expert insight into the issue but also to offer a practical, realistic, everyday take on the pregnancy journey. In between each episode we will also compile ?minisodes?, titled ?Contractions?. These will be five-minute-long highlight pieces that will feature the most important elements from each episode and focus on practical information and tips. For example; ?What to bring in your Hospital Bag?. The final bumper sized episode will be recorded live in the Pillar Room in the Rotunda Hospital to a live audience of real mums. This will be the culmination of the series and there will be a panel of experts available on the day to take questions from mums and pregnant women in the audience. It is hoped that by engaging with mums, pregnant women and their partners via podcast that we will tap into a whole new medium of dissemination for our research endeavours and will leave current and future parents feeling better prepared. We envisage it being an easy but informative listen as people jump on the bus or go about their day.
