This episode is sponsored by Let's Conquer Motherhood, the online membership program for mums, with Lisa York.

Business Coach and Let's Conquer Motherhood member Jessica Fearnley is a healthy mum of two young boys and runs a successful business around her and her family's needs. But getting to where she is today wasn't always easy. About 8 years ago, and only a few months into her marriage, things came to a head for Jessica. Feeling unwell, exhausted, and completely broken and burnt out after years of working extremely hard and putting pressure on herself, Jessica decided to leave the corporate world and the career she had worked so hard to build.

Emotionally and physically at an all-time low and unable to work, she did the only thing she felt she could do. She took time out and built herself up again one tiny step at the time. When Jessica fell pregnant with her first child, a lot of the symptoms she had experienced as a result of stress and anxiety made an unwelcome come back into her life. And needless to say, her dream of having an idyllic 9 months was totally crushed. After a difficult birth, Jessica struggled to adjust to life with a newborn, and she very quickly realised that she was keen to put her professional experience to good use again, but she had to do it on her terms. So when her son was only 4 months old, Jessica's business was born.

In this heartfelt episode, you'll learn how being completely honest with yourself and the way you feel about motherhood can help you understand what really matters to you in life. By the end of this interview, you'll be inspired to do life on your terms, be true to yourself, and be completely unapologetic about it.

Mum-of-two and Let's Conquer Motherhood member Stephanie Myerscough has recently packed her bags and her whole life and moved to Italy with her husband and young children. While she's still busy getting used to a new country, culture, and language and settling her family in, Stephanie is also studying for a post-graduate Master Degree in Applied Positive Psychology, attending lessons between the UK and France.

Following the demands of her husband's job, Stephanie and her family have moved home several times over the last few years, and while life has certainly been full on, Stephanie is embracing the opportunities that are coming her way and making the most of what she's learning through her degree and within the Let's Conquer Motherhood membership.

In this episode, Stephanie introduces us to the concepts of thriving and flourishing. If you've ever had times when you felt you were just nodding along and navigating through life with no real intention, you may have found yourself in 'survival mode'. As Stephanie points out, while this is something a lot of mums experience, it's common to lack the knowledge and tools that can help us transition from a negative mental state to a more positive one. One where you're not just surviving, but where you're also thriving.

By the end of this interview, you'll learn an easy, practical technique that you can use at any time to check in with yourself to become more in tune and aware of your emotions and the way you're feeling. If you ever find yourself in burnout or survival mode, you'll see that there are always ways to make changes and turn your day around.

Soon after becoming a mum, Vicki Dawson learnt an important lesson the hard way.  Newborn babies don't sleep very well. But in Vicki's case, her son's challenging sleeping patterns continued for a number of years. Needless to say, this left Vicki chronically sleep-deprived and feeling totally exhausted and isolated as a result.

Her experience, and the way it affected both her personal and professional life, led to the creation of The Children's Sleep Charity, which offers information and strategies to parents and professionals in supporting and educating families around sleep.

Through her work, Vicki empowers families who are struggling with sleep to make the changes that are right for them. These can include creating sleep plans, practising breathing and mindfulness exercises, and learning strategies to create a calmer and less tense environment around bedtime.

With a lot of information out there focused on children's sleep, Vicki reminds us that a mother's sleep habits can still be negatively impacted long after her children are sleeping through the night. As busy mums, we have a duty to prioritise our sleep in order to stay well, become more effective, and keep our families safe, which is why in this episode Vicki shares tips to help mums sleep better.

During this interview, you'll learn why what you choose to do in the hour before you go to bed can dramatically improve your sleep quality. By the end of this episode, you'll have a number of practical strategies to get more in synch with your body and relax before bedtime, including a list of foods that you should or shouldn't eat before bed. You'll also learn what causes you to wake in the night and what you can do if you struggle to fall asleep again. Follow Vicki's advice, and you'll be ready to sleep like a baby. But this time, in a good way!

Newly married, pregnant, and in her twenties, Emily Hodge received a devastating cancer diagnosis that would change the course of her life in many ways. One of which was losing her baby and being unable (so far) to conceive again.

That was a few years ago and, after 15 years working as a Health Psychologist in the NHS, Emily used her experience to help others. She's now a successful Life Coach and has helped and supported hundreds of people, including other cancer patients, to lead happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives.

Over the years, working with people on a one-to-one basis and in group settings, Emily started to notice something. No matter who you are, where you're from or what your backstory is, we all want similar things - to feel happier, calmer, more focused and to lead a life that’s right for us.

So in 2017, Emily launched her signature group programme - the Gentle Life course, which guides rushed, busy and stressed out women over 6 weeks to map out what living more gently means to them. It provides them with the tools and strategies to kickstart the lifelong work that will help them lead the life they want to live (so that they might shout less at their kids, be happier in their relationships and be so much kinder to themselves).

In this episode, you'll learn how checking in with your feelings, thoughts, and emotions allows you to re-define your behaviours, actions, and habits. By becoming more aware of the way you spend your time, you'll find out how you can start to say no to the things you don't really want, so you can gradually replace them with the things that you do.

If you're ready to find a little bit of space and calm in your life, learn how to be kinder to yourself, and discover some practical tools that will help you develop your emotional resilience, tune in and discover the five steps that Emily shares that will help you live more gently.

When Janine Esbrand became pregnant with her first son, she started questioning her high-flying career as a busy corporate lawyer. Working late into the night with a nanny looking after her son full time no longer seemed like the perfect solution. After a year off on maternity leave, Janine decided to abandon her dream of becoming a partner in a law firm and get a part-time job as an in-house legal counsel instead. A choice that allowed her to spend time with her family but also pursue the legal career she had been working so hard for.

Fast forward a few years, Janine is now the owner of LightBOX Coaching - a company that supports ambitious women who want to continue or kick-start their careers beyond motherhood. Through a signature course, one-to-one sessions, and her membership programme, Janine provides return-to-work coaching, training, and resources for both individuals and organisations. So if you noticed that your priorities and values have shifted now that you’re a mum, and you feel you may need to walk away from your career, Janine will show you that you don’t have to.

By the end of this episode, you’ll understand how you can have a career that you love which is also compatible with raising your family. You’ll learn how you can rebuild your confidence, discover and leverage your strengths (both at home and in the workplace), and ensure that your career choices meet your personal and family values. You’ll also pick up some very practical tips to help your colleagues and managers recognise you as a valuable member of the team. Because being a mum doesn’t mean you can’t go for the role or promotion that you really want!
