Candice Brathwaite started blogging about being a black British mother in 2016. An online space that was Candice’s for the taking, and boy did she claim it! After sharing her story and helping other mothers whilst she was at it, Candice grew a dramatic online following, and in May 2020 released her first book ‘I Am Not Your Baby Mother’, to critical acclaim!
Now a presenter, author and campaigner for making motherhood inclusive for all, Candice released her second book ‘Sista Sister’ in the summer this year, a collection of essays of advice she wished she’d heard when she was a young black girl.
Katie and Candice catch-up on this chapter of Candice’s story, and the many that have got her to where she is today.
