Season Two

Parenting is a juggling act at the best of times, mix in a career and it can throw up all kinds of challenges...

In Season Two of our video and podcast series, Life in Digital, we are focusing on the superstars that are choosing to juggle parenthood and their career. From starting a business with a young family, supporting parents in returning to work, to the highs and lows of being a single parent, we are speaking to leaders in the digital sector about their experiences, and how they navigate life in digital and raising their families.

We're available on all major podcast platforms, find yours here.

Season Two, Episode Four: Struggling with Pregnancy 
In the final episode of this season’s Parenting is a Juggling Act, we're joined by Niki Stoker, mother of Fred and Chief Operating Officer at A Million Ads.

Niki endured a rollercoaster of a journey into motherhood, including an ectopic pregnancy that left her feeling that she and her husband would never conceive.

Her story is one of hardship, endurance and in the end, hopefulness.

If you are struggling with any of the topics mentioned, please reach out to myself (Amy) or Niki (our details are below)
