“Zero Expectations” with Melanie Dimmitt, Author of Special.

In today’s episode I’m talking with a Mother who’s story is a little different to our previous episodes so far. She’s a writer, Author, Mother of two kids, her first of which, was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Melanie Dimmitt is the author of 'Special: Antidotes to the obsessions that come with a child’s disabilityreleased in 2019. Not having envisioned herself as a Mother, it wasn’t until she was with her partner for a few years that Mel thought about becoming one. Mel and I dive into her Motherhood journey, her experience discovering Arlo’s diagnosis and parenting a child with a disability, we talk about learning boundaries as people pleasers, Mel's career and work as a writer, how she wrangles it all with the kids & much, much more.
