Episode 11 – Beverly

On this week’s episode I sit down with Beverly Coughlan AKA Bev. Bev was a guest on Episode 3 The Five lamps and on that we touched on her journey through pre and post-natal depression and psychosis.

After that  episode we got so many messages and requests, asking us to sit down together again and this week we get into the why behind her journey and how two horrific incidents sent her down the path of anxiety.

We chat through the births of our children and she tells me of her horrific miscarriage and how these events impacted not only her but her little family.

She tells me why it’s so important to get your smear and what she went through because of a delayed result.

We chat how she campions others to be their very best self and how she is getting there with her own confidence.

Bev was a pleasure to sit with and someone you can easily relate with, we had lots of fun on and off mike on this, Prosecco is to blame…… we hope you enjoy.

Episode 6 – Marguerite

On this week’s episode I sit down with my good friend Marguerite Penrose.

Her story is a story perseverance and strength, resilience and recovery.
Born from an Irish mother and a Zambian father, born with Congenital scoliosis  and abandoned in St Patricks mother and baby home.

Marguerite found herself hitting the parenting jackpot when she was fostered by Michael and Noeleen at the age of 3 and then growing up with her Irish twin her sister Ciara.

Her condition resulted in many surgeries which in one case left her paralysed tag the age of 8 and in here later years a  chest infection that nearly killed her.

After an interview with Ryan Tubridy contact was made by a nurse who worked in St Patricks mother and baby home, at the time Mags was a ward there.

We discuss her involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement, she explains her treatments at the hands of racist Ireland. I found myself trying to justify these behaviours throughout the podcast but Mags is very forgiving and her message to us all is very simple. Acceptance.
