Alright For A Mum

Alright For A Mum

Kids & Family

Carrie-Anne became a single mum when her son was 6 months. After moving back into her mums flat, going onto benefits at 24 she decided to start a clothing brand. In 2 years, it became a six figure business. In her own right she’s known for her sense of style, she’s been featured in publications such as Marie Claire and the Telegraph. After someone insulted her by saying she was alright for a mum it got her thinking. When Carrie became a single mum, she didn’t feel there were any realistic, conversations about single motherhood happening in the media. She wanted to create a space where women felt like they could have a giggle and be able to relate to what was being spoken about. Remi was a writer as well as a new mum at the time, who had been very open about her experiences. In her first year of university Remi aged 22, fell pregnant with her daughter. She had been sharing her inner most thoughts, writing about how she felt and how she found motherhood. She had a very small audience, which over 18 months has grown particularly among the parenting industry. Her “honest” approach to life has gained her attention outside of her writing too. She’s added plus size model to her CV and has also been a guest on other podcasts speaking on topics such as body confidence. For Remi this podcast, allows her to “speak to women who are where she has been and sometimes still is... Not to speak for all single mums but to most.” It’s clear that these two are great friends. Whilst they are so different, they offer a refreshing take on lone parent stereotypes. Showing that while it can be hard, for them it was what was best for their families. They open the series with an episode about dating. With plans to cover co-parenting, loneliness, travel, sex and choosing to go it alone from the beginning in future episodes. Reinforcing that no topic is off limits and the chat is completely unfiltered, they’ve chosen not to censor themselves. If their listeners only take one thing away from Alright for a mum, Carrie and Remi just want it to be that they can listen to this podcast and feel less alone.
