I’ll let you in on a secret: I never actually wanted to be a mum. I’m delighted to be one now, of course. But pre-motherhood, my fear of long-term interrupted sleep had me running for the hills. I’m a girl who loves – no, needs – her sleep. (I can feel my nearest and dearest nodding along ...

Chloe and I often have our most powerful and profound conversations over long walks in the South of France. There’s something about the air, the green grass, and the cows… making for the best bestie bonding. We discuss our personal conundrums, successes, and we bounce ideas off of one another.
