Jack’s Mum: an American mother in England

By Suzanne Schultz Pick
Hi, I’m Jack’s Mum. About ten years ago I moved from Florida to North East England. A year ago, at the age of 43, my husband and I had our first child. Then 2020 happened. This podcast is for mothers like me out there who are just trying out motherhood for the first time while the world is going crazy around them.

Episode 4: Eating
My baby ate some toast and a green bean today? Weaning a toddler after going through the breastfeeding/bottle feeding dance is tough.  Also, many Americans won't know what a Health Visitor is: she is a midwife who is trained in community public health.
