A young mother from Bedfordshire is encouraging women to give DIY projects a go — showing that it can still be done with a small child in tow.

Jasmine Gurney even continued to share videos of her home renovation work while heavily pregnant with her first child, now 17 months-old, and has more than 62,000 subscribers on her "Oh Abode" TikTok channel and more than 80,000 followers on Instagram.
