Stay Away From Google

The Postpartum Podcast – Stay off of Google, trust your instincts and more helpful tips.

Why this podcast?
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in your pregnancy and upcoming birth that you kind of forget that after all that, the real work starts.

Yep, you’ll have a brand new, teeny little human to look after and preparing for that, as far as you can, is so helpful.

This podcast is warm and supportive and covers pretty much all aspects of the postpartum experience.

Why this episode?
I talk to clients about trusting their own instincts but it can be so hard to do when you are suddenly responsible for a whole other person.

Nobody Told Me!

The New Mom Show – No one told me…….

Why this podcast?
Another new one today folks! This podcast is all about –

”Two new moms sharing our journey as we navigate motherhood and all of its beauty, struggles, and so many diapers!”

I loved the sound of that. New motherhood can be a lonely time as well as a time of self-doubt.

Are we doing a good job? Is this normal?

It can be helpful to listen to other mums out there who are in this too.

The hosts are Alexys, a first-time mum who loves good food, gardening and sport and Latoya, a mum, wellness instructor and writer. They are both lively, enthusiastic and funny!

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.

The Empowered Mama – It Takes A Village

Why this podcast?
This is another one from the gold mine that is the Parents on Demand Network. There are so many pregnancy, birth and parent-related podcasts that, honestly, I’ll be featuring quite a few more over the coming weeks.

The Empowered Mama podcast is hosted by Lisa Druxmna whose passion it is –

”To raise healthy moms so that they can raise healthy kids in a healthy world”

The podcast focuses on fitness, food, life balance and living with passion and purpose.

Simple, Healthy Foods For Your Postpartum

Newbies – Postpartum Nutrition for New Moms

Why this podcast?
Whilst exploring the array of fertility, pregnancy, birth and parenting podcasts under the umbrella Parents on Demand (or POD) network for my previous post I stumbled across the Newbies podcast.

Covering areas such as preparing your car for your new baby; delayed postpartum depression; tears and episiotomy; swaddling; cloth diapers and sex after baby, this podcast seemed a great one to feature here.

Who should listen to this episode?
Expecting mums, partners and any family and friends who are planning to help out with food post-baby.

6 Essential Items For NICU Families

Delivering Miracles – Essential Gifts for NICU Parents

Why this podcast?
I decided that I needed to freshen things up a little and so I went through all the podcasts I subscribe to, deleted some and went looking for new ones. I had heard, via the fantastic Doing It At Home (DIAH) podcast, that there is a collection of fertility, pregnancy, birth and parenting podcasts under the umbrella Parents on Demand (or POD) network.

I think it’s safe to say I found a few new podcasts to explore!
