Spend Sunday morning with Amanda Palmer as she explores experiences of motherhood with Australian singer-songwriter, actress and mother, Missy Higgins. Before the arrival of her son in January 2015, Missy Higgins told the media, “I don’t know what will happen after this. I’ve got no plans at the moment. I’m going to see how this motherhood thing turns out”.

We’re going to talk about how people treat you differently with a child, and about the hopes and fears of every new parent. We’re going to talk about abortion and miscarriage, and why as a society we make women go through it all alone, in the closet, ashamed, instead of recognising their mourning. We will contemplate and celebrate the complexities of motherhood and the transformation that parenthood can bring to our lives.
