Elyse Knowles - What I Wish I Knew Before Becoming a Mum

Elyse Knowles - What I Wish I Knew Before Becoming a Mum

What do you wish you could go back in time and tell yourself about becoming a parent for the first time?


We’ve been planning this episode for a while but we wanted to keep it REAL and have someone who would be completely honest about becoming a parent AND transitioning from one to two kids. If you’ve followed her on Instagram you’ll know that Elyse Knowles does just that. 

Elyse is a mum of two, a model and was the winner of the Block along with her partner Josh back in 2017. She has just had her second child Zaii 7 months ago and her son Sunny is almost three. 


If you or someone you know are considering, expecting or about to transition into have two (or three) this episode is a great reminder of what it’s REALLY like that most people don’t tell you. 


You’ll hear:

✨What the hospitals tell you to focus on that is a complete waste of time 

✨Absolute MUST HAVES for a new Mum 

✨What Elyse struggled with the most when becoming a parent 

✨Where each of us found our support networks

… and a whole lot more!
