How does having a child with additional needs affect parenting? And what are the correct terms to use? 

Leigh and Tegan chat to Julie Mathers, a mum to 16-month-old Woody who lives with Down Syndrome, about what life is like with a child who has additional needs.

Plus, Leigh’s WTF moment of the week was when she had to use a snot sucker on her sick little bub… But trying to pin a toddler down versus a baby is a whole different ball game! 



Hosts: Leigh Campbell & Tegan Natoli

Guest: Julie Mathers

Producer: Pariya Taherzadeh & Bridget Northeast
