Pregnancy, Parenting & Mum stuff
-Australian Birth Stories
If you're a Mumma-to-be then this podcast is a must! Sophie interviews Mums that have given birth and would like to share their stories. The podcast has been designed to help and educate all the first time Mums-to-be, especially if you're feeling scared and nervous. Lots of things can happen in delivery and every birth has a different story. Plus there are lots of influencer and celebrity Mums that you would be familiar with, and possible follow on Instagram.
-Parental as anything
Maggie Dent hosts this fantastic podcast for parents, with kids of all ages. Maggie gives really good practical advise on all the challenges us parents face. For example- Three year old tantrums, anxious kids going to school, helping your child make friends. I find this podcast really helpful as Maggie gives great tips of what you can do to help and understand your child. Dads will find this podcast super helpful as well!
-This Glorious Mess
I've been listening to this podcast for years! It started off with Andrew Daddo and Holly Wainwright talking all things messy in parenting life. Now its separated into two different podcasts- Big Kids (with Andrew Daddo and Holly Wainwright), and Little Kids (with Leigh Campbell & Tigga Natoli). It's truly is an entertaining podcast particularly as Andrew gives an honest perspective of Fatherhood which we don't often hear. All the hosts are completely honest with their parenting and share all the messy times which makes it so relatable.
Penny Johnston hosts this informative podcast for all the Mums-to-be and Mums with Babies. Penny dives into topics you might not have thought too much about when it comes to your bub. Like why is tummy time so important? Or why should we have family rituals? The episodes are only ever around 20-30 mins, so perfect if you've only got a short amount of time.
-Birth, Baby & Beyond
If you don't know who Midwife Cath is yet, then you really need to download this podcast! Cath Curtin has over 40 years experience as a Midwife, and has so much knowledge about pregnancy, birthing, and life after birth. Those first six weeks after bub is born is really really tough on new Mums. Midwife Cath has so many helpful tips on feeding, bath times and most importantly sleep. Even though you are listening to her on a podcast it really feels like she is there to help you through those difficult times. Definitely download or share this podcast with a brand new Mumma, particularly if you know she's struggling.
Rebecca Judd and Monique Bowley host this heartwarming podcast on pregnancy. Each episode is a different month in pregnancy, and looks at all the things you might face at that particular time. Rebecca Judd has so many great stories about all her pregnancies and how different they were, particularly with twins!
Christie Hayes and Holly Wainwright look at the first year of your babies life. If you are currently thinking 'how am I going to do this' than this is the podcast for you! Honest, practical and hilarious, these ladies don't hold back as to what life is actually like after bubs arrival. Year One podcast is month by month episodes of your babies life, so just 12 episodes in total.
