"It's [motherhood] is the biggest thing you'll ever do, and it's the thing you get judged the most on," says Sam.
"When people say, 'What can I do to help?', or, 'I'll do anything to help!' - give them things to do!"
If you're a new mom trying to come to terms with this new journey, this episode is a must-listen. It's filled with lots of great, non-judgemental advice to help support new moms as they navigate this new journey; plus, of course, lots of Sam's trademark humour.
