Carla suffered with disordered eating since the age of 5 and was constantly trying to lose weight.

Carla, also known as Half of Carla, joined Brenda and Julie to tell them how she did it and how her life has changed since. For anyone who relates to Carla’s story of disordered eating please do get help from your doctor or reach out to Bodywhys.ie or call their helpline for support on: (01) 2107906

There are all sorts of ways to become and to be a mother, and while Julie has shared her own story, today the girls heard from Tracy Shine who decided to have her lovely little twins via sperm donor.
