5 Rules For New Parents

Pregnancy Podcast – Five Rules for New Parents

Why this podcast?
Anyone who has read this blog before knows how much I value families having access to evidenced-based information so that they can make informed choices for their pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

This podcast is still one of my absolute favourites for providing that info in short, clear and easy to digest episodes of thirty minutes or less.

Why this episode?
The recent arrival of a new royal baby in the UK got me thinking about what it’s like to suddenly have an actual tiny human to care for.

Intrusive Thoughts

Mom & Mind – Postpartum OCD. Why am I having these thoughts?!?!

Why this podcast?
Yep, you’ve guessed it, Mom & Mind is another podcast from the Parents on Demand Network. Mom & Mind is hosted by¬†Psychologist and Perinatal Mental Health Specialist, Dr Kat and is –

“Dedicated to understanding the mental health of pregnant, birthing, loss and postpartum families.”

Why this episode?
I love that the Mom & Mind homepage underlines that “Postpartum Depression is only part of the story”. This episode focuses on Postpartum OCD and I would encourage all expecting parents to take thirty minutes to¬†listen to it.
