Leonie is a mum of 2 toddlers, a podcast host, and a Relationship & Parenting Coach. Through the work she does with her own podcast 'Parenthood' speaking to mums and dads about all of the challenges parenthood brings, along with her work as a coach for many of these parents, she's gathered some extremely wise tips and advice on what to do when your relationship looks different to how it did pre-kids.
In today's KICBUMP episode, Leonie covers how to best communicate with your partner, why point scoring / tit for tat in a relationship can be problematic, how to better juggle the mental load that comes with parenting, how to celebrate the joys of parenting, what to do if you find yourself in a sexless marriage, why self care is so important and so much more.

Okay, enough poo chat already!!
In Steph & Laura's catch up today, okay MAYBE things get a little gross once again... but we PROMISE this is the last time we discuss poo for a while! Just when you thought Laura's shockingly gross admission the other day was bad, it somehow gets worse! The question is, is there anybody at all out there who does the same thing as her? We find out in today's episode.
We also hear from a listener who wants some advice about dealing with trolls on social media, plus Steph's husband Josh blamed her for something that was undoubtedly his fault... but we've all done this to some degree 😂.

Dating men vs women & exploring your sexuality, with Maria Thattil
Maria Thattil joins us for the second time on KICPOD (listen to her first ep here) and this time things get juicy!
Maria is many things - an opinion writer, speaker, TV personality, diversity activist, digital creator, and former Miss Universe Australia. But above all else, she is 100% unapologetically herself, and paves the way for so many young people to feel comfortable and confident to explore their own identity.
After being crowned Miss Universe Australia in 2020, she spent some time in the African jungle on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here where she came out as bisexual on national television. A year and a half on, Maria isn't afraid to share the intimate and personal details of her sex life - and today's episode is no exception! So what is the difference between dating men vs dating women? How did she even know what to do the first time? And what does she say to certain homophobic family members who hear her speak so openly about these topics? All is revealed in this ep, along with so many take away moments.
Be sure to check out Maria's book 'Unbounded', and her recent episode on the Audible podcast Power Talks.

Raising your child to be empowered by their disability - KICBUMP with Hannah Vasicek
* TRIGGER WARNING: This episode discusses abortion. For support, contact Beyond Blue on 1300 224 636 *
If you've been a KICPOD listener for a while, you may have heard the unbelievable story of two sisters Rachel & Hannah who escaped attempted human trafficking back in 2016. In today's KICBUMP episode, Hannah shares her incredible story of how her frightening pregnancy diagnoses ended up giving her the beautiful gift of her now 3 year old daughter Vienna.
During her pregnancy, Hannah's baby was diagnosed with Amniotic Band Sydnrome, and despite doctors suggesting multiple times that she shouldn't follow through with the pregnancy, Hannah stuck to what she knew was right. In this episode, she speaks about what it was like hearing the news that her baby would be born without her right arm, how she came to the decision to go ahead with her pregnancy, and how she wants to raise her daughter to feel empowered rather than limited by her disability.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
