#03 How do I know if it's time for a baby?

Bumps Along the Way

23-05-2023 • 45分

Trying to decide if you should have a baby is not a small decision!

In fact, it's probably the first bump along the way to motherhood that we all encounter.


Am I ready for this responsibility? Am I going to be able to give this baby the best possible life? What if I’m not a good Mother?

There are so many things to consider before having a baby, and nobody resonates more with this than the incredible Eva Murray.


If you’re currently considering trying, or wondering if you will ever know if it’s really the right time, this is the episode of Bumps for you.

Eva shares so much valuable insight based on her own years of soul searching, and the struggle between her head and her heart.


Eva also shares her own story of miscarriage, what it’s like continuing in a 9-5 job during that experience, becoming a mature age mother and how we can all be more empathetic towards people who are still in there, trying to conceive.
