ABOUT CHEZZI and LAUREN
It can be all too easy to look from the outside and assume other people – other mothers– have it together. When you’re deep in the trenches it can feel as though you’re the only one struggling…the only mother not revelling in beloved baby bliss.
Thank goodness for women like Chezzi Denyer and Lauren Dubois who are joining forces to throw a cold hard dose of reality onto the myth of motherhood bliss, at our next Mum Society event!
With extensive experience across television, radio and politics, producing powerhouse Chezzi found herself plagued with postnatal anxiety after the traumatic birth of her first daughter Sailor in 2011. Combine this with several bouts of mastitis and being constantly on the road with weather presenter husband, Grant, it’s no surprise Chezzi was feeling alone and isolated. Now safely out the other side, and with second daughter Scout also having joined the family, Chezzi has created online mother’s group Mummy Time TV, a place to chat, laugh and even cry as she and her guests discuss all things baby and parenting.
Former political journalist Lauren assumed that having dealt with tantrums and meltdowns from the people who run our country, having children would be a breeze. Now with two children, lovingly referred to as Thud and Pop, she realises just how wrong she was! Finding herself feeling isolated and struggling with her confidence is this new world of parenting, Lauren started her award-winning blog The Thud, where she shares her raw, hilarious and often foul-mouthed muses about surviving motherhood.
Join us on May 9 for a refreshingly honest look at motherhood through the eyes of Chezzi and Lauren, where no topic will be off limits! We will discuss everything from sleep (what’s that?) to boobs (newly located southward) to pelvic floors (leakage panties anyone?) to sex (refer to ‘sleep’) and anything else relating to motherhood. Chezzi and Lauren are all about telling it like it is and what better way to do it than while having a bloody good laugh!
