Looking for parenting tips but have no time to read?

Podcasts might be your friends!

I don’t know about you, but I can safely say NOT BEING BUSY ENOUGH is not one of my problems.

As a busy parent, I have completely fallen in love with podcasts!


They are perfect for mums constantly on the go! Even when I am on ‘taxi-driver’ duty, taking my children to clubs or to friends homes, walking the dog, working or making dinner, I can still open Spotify and listen to my favourite podcast.


I have only just found my love of podcasts and i can tell you, there is something out there for everyone. But what about parenting, new mums? It’s been a difficult year this year and talking to the new mums that have been for newborn photography sessions, one of the things that is apparent is the lack of opportunity with all this Covid stuff to meet other new mums which can be isolating. It should be a time to share with new mums, discuss concerns and advice, so podcasts although don’t replace social interaction, are at the moment a good second option to hear stories that you can relate too. Here are my favourite new mum parenting podcasts.


For anyone that is a Celebrity Jungle fan, you will know about Giovanna Fletcher who is currently on the show and her podcast. Happy Mum, Happy Baby. This well established podcast has approx 80 episodes, where she talks about motherhood, a theme which started in her book, also titled Happy Mum, Happy Baby. Within each episode Giovanna talks to a range of high-profile parents about all aspects of parenting, through all the highs and lows that each day can bring. This podcast reinforces the notion that as parents we all do out best and there is no such things as a perfect parent. Stop comparing yourself to other mums and listen to this podcast!
