Six kids and no sleep: the life of Dr Ginni Mansberg

With kids living under her roof aged 11-24, Dr Ginni Mansberg is in a constant state of triage. This Wonder Woman is not just a GP, she’s also a well-respected TV doctor, worked in a methadone clinic and was even a political advisor to Joe Hockey (after watching West Wing she thought, why not?) She reveals the trick to getting enough sleep, the secret to making a blended family work and she puts the evil stepmother myth to bed for good.
