Journalist Emma Barnett is a regular presenter of Newsnight and has recently become the main presenter of Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4. She's good at asking questions and bringing people to account but says she's had to learn patience because as a mum, 'losing your shit' gets you nowhere! Emma struggled to get pregnant, which after two and half years she realised was because of endometriosis. She had her baby through IVF but she says she will always have one foot in the camp of those who would like to be mothers but have not managed it. We talked about childcare, we talked about periods a lot, and if you stay listening till the end you will hear us sharing our most embarrassing stories with each other.
