Episode 41 – The Healthy Family Series, Early Years – CheltenhamMaman Good Mum Bad Mum Podcast

Hey hey it’s podcast day! 

So part 3 of my series of podcasts all created under the CM Good Mum Bad Mum header but created in paid partnerships with Public Health Gloucestershire and in collaboration with Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS Foundation Trust. 

In these monthly episodes we’ve been focusing on a key section of your journey as a parent and helping you navigate the minefield that is health. I’ve been talking to a range of experienced health care professionals about how we can best nurture our little (and not so little ones) bodies and minds leaving them fit to live happy and healthy lives. We’ve already covered pregnancy and the fourth trimester and today it;s all about the early years where our babies develop into busy toddler. Today we talk about many issues including attachment parenting, weaning, how to care for a poorly child and the really important topic that is vaccination. 

In part three my guests include a local GP (Dr Jeremy Welch) , a Children’s Nursery Nurse (Jane Horwood)  and a Health Visitor with a specialism in attachment, positive touch and positive parenting (Elizabeth Browne) and between us we have a wealth of experience parenting as Mums and Dads so I really hope you find this episode helpful and as always ask you to rate, review and subscribe and perhaps share the link with any other mums you know are parenting at a similar stage. These messages of public health are so important to maintain the happy and healthy community most of us are lucky enough to live in. 

This episode is packed and it’s a long one so I’ll stop nattering to you and get nattering the professionals.
