I became a single mother by choice, not by accident. I’ve been recording our lives for seven years to tell this story, about making choices and taking action to live the life you want. If you’re a parent, want to be a parent, or just love good storytelling, this podcast is for you.

Customer Reviews

Started so well

Loved the first podcasts and enjoyed the beginning of the story. It started as a story of hope and excitement. It later became self absorbed and whinging. The narrator was in a privileged position- 12 months maternity leave, a live in grandparent, able to quit work to follow a dream, had parents to step in financially and pay for living expenses/ international travel - yet there was still a high level of complaining and dissatisfaction.

Soothing and calm!

Such a beautiful podcast! Sophie’s voice is so calm and soothing. It often helped me relax to sleep. I binged the entire series in the last two weeks after ‘accidentally’ finding it. I have an almost 4.5 year old daughter, so Astrid’s personality and inquisitiveness really resonated with me.
I think it would be a great podcast to listen to during pregnancy, and in the early weeks. Sophie is so honest and open about her experiences and Astrid’s development. It’s a good little guide to early parenthood.
Sad that the podcast is over, but looking forward to updates. 😊

I have been telling everyone about this podcast!!

2 reviews in one - Sophie I think you are a remarkable human and as an aspiring podcaster (and mother) I am very motivated to create listening to your podcast. I love your ideas, presentation and technique.

This just in from my father as I really have been telling everyone about this podcast.

''Not suure if you put me on to the podcast "Not by Accident". Aussie production by Sophie Harper in Canberra - WHAT A RABBIT HOLE! It is a binge listen. Beautifully done and a real heartstring puller. Only listened to last episode - the last''
