Today we heard Coronation Street actor Charlie Condou and his partner Cameron talking their alternative parenting.
Sarah Garrett from Alternative Parenting Week, who is a gay parent, and Denise Robertson who has been a single mum and step mother answered your calls.
They say "mother knows best": from bathing in porridge to smearing our bodies in goose fat, each of us have our own unique home remedies which have been passed down the generations.
But is there any truth to them? Or are they just a bunch of old wives tales? Today, Dr Chris takes a look at the home cures and tells us if there is any science behind them.
With the Duchess of Cambridge announcing she is pregnant for the second time and Holly about to have her third it's fair to say they're both going to have their hands full.
Research has revealed that the average mother in Britain juggles 42 never-ending jobs, such as washing clothes, vacuuming, getting the children out of bed and planning evening meals, each day.
Today we are going to sort out your life once and for all with some incredible tips and tricks to make your day less stressful. Mum of two Katy Hill is here with some amazing ways to save time and cut down on those jobs.
Three years ago a mongrel dog called Wylie suffered horrendous cruelty on the streets of Afghanistan. He was beaten and abused and had his ears and his tail hacked off.
However his life was turned around when he was rescued by Royal Marine and Nowzad charity founder Pen Farthing. Pen sent Wylie to England where he was adopted by Sarah Singleton who volunteers for the charity. Wylie went on to defy all odds and not only fully recovered from the abuse he'd suffered but triumphed to be crowned top dog at Scruffts this year!
With the big things we all stand together.
According to the Office for National Statistics, families are no longer about mum, dad and 2.4 children. Households come in all shapes and sizes. In 2011, there were an estimated 63,000 families consisting of a same sex cohabiting couple and in 2014, it's estimated that there are 12,000 out gay families living in the UK.
This week celebrates Alternative Parenting Week - raising awareness about same-sex families and single parent families. For Coronation Street actor Charlie Condou, being a parent was a dream he always wanted to fulfil and he is now the proud dad of a little boy and a girl.
Earlier on we met Darren Pidgeon, the young man whose life was changed in an instant when he was sprayed with acid in an unprovoked attack.
Following the news that Dr Tapan Patel would like to help him with his scarring, Dr Dawn Harper and self esteem expert Natasha Devon take viewers' calls.
Last Thursday, animal-lovers across the country were left in shock when dozens of dogs were killed in an arson attack on Manchester Dogs Home.
In total around 60 dogs died in the fire but that number would have been even higher were it not for three local heroes: Jason Dyer, his son Danny Vere and nephew Dean Rostock, who risked their own lives by running into the flames and pulling pets out of the blaze. Today we're joined by Jason, Danny and Dean plus Anna Stansfield: manager of Cheshire Dogs Home which has now taken in all of the homeless pooches.
Three months ago Darren Pidgeon was the victim of an attack which left his life shattered. Sprayed in the face with acid in an unprovoked attack by a stranger, the attack has left him in excruciating pain, permanently scarred and even to scared and ashamed to leave the house.
Worried that he will never find love or that he will ever lead a normal life again, Darren now just hopes for one thing - that the people responsible for the attack are caught and brought to justice.
