'Lockdown maternity leave wasn't what I’d hoped for!’ - 'Lockdown Conversations'

On today’s ‘Lockdown Conversations’ podcast, new mum Ellen Beardmore tells us about maternity leave in lockdown.

Monday, 9th November 2020, 11:54 am

Our podcast will be running each and every day throughout lockdown, keeping you company, keeping you connected, and sharing your lockdown stories and experiences.

Host Nik Farah will be inviting a different local voice to take a seat on the virtual couch every day, for as long as lockdown lasts – talking about Covid-19’s impact on your jobs, mental health, relationships, and life-changing events.

We’ve chatted to South Yorkshire actor Lee Semley about keeping theatre alive, local journalist Danielle Andrews about giving alcohol the heave-ho, caught up with Ruth Garbutt – mum of Captain Tobias Weller – about their incredible lockdown challenge, and Jane Alflat about her untraditional 2020 wedding.
