Noel and Chris - perhaps not who you'd expect for a Mama Let's Talk episode, but we wanted to get a number of points across via this interview.

This article penned by Multi-Mam, reminds us of how multi-faceted motherhood is... and even when elbow-deep in daily challenges, to always remember to be true to ourselves.
