BBC Mums and Mental Health #MumTakeover

Some of you may or may not already know that I was asked if I would like to get involved with the BBC mums and mental health event that is taking place in Blackpool this week where Stacey Solomon, Rochelle Humes and Giovanna Fletcher will join BBC 5 live radio presenter Anna Foster to host the UK’s biggest conversation about Mums and Mental Health.
