Whether you’re eagerly expecting a new arrival or just a parent in need of some advice here are the best podcasts for you.
We’ve found guidance on a range of issues from helping your child through anxiety to learning how to love your pregnancy body, to when you want a bit of 'me-time' having spent your day sleep-deprived, Weetabix-stained and arguing with a two-year-old who wants to eat birthday cake for breakfast!
So, here are our favourite podcasts from familiar faces and new friends...
The best parenting podcasts
Happy Mum, Happy Baby is the official podcast of Giovanna Fletcher. Throughout her episodes she continues to talk 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.
The only way Rosie
and Chris Ramsey can have a conversation without being interrupted by a toddler or ending up staring at their phones is by doing a podcast. They’ll be chatting all about life, relationships, arguments, annoyances, parenting, growing up and everything in between. Each week they will answer questions from the public and a secret celebrity.
Not Another Mummy Podcast is one of the UK's top parenting podcasts with previous guests including Philippa Perry, Dr Rangan Chatterjee, Emma Bunton, Rosie Ramsey and Meg Mathews. Host (and Mother&Baby mumlister) Alison Perry
chats to a different guest each episode about parenting and family issues.
The smart, fun, must-listen podcast for parents of kids of all ages. Created by Munchkin Inc
Hosted by Faith Salie (CBS Sunday Morning, NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!), each episode features inspirational stories, fascinating guests, innovative parenting tips, and tons of “Wow, I have been there” moments.
Ones to watch
We're also very excited about our favourite mummy workout guru Hannah Mummy Mills and 2021 mumlister Nichola Ludlam-Raine (@mummynutrition) joining forces in a brand new podcast, The Honest Mummies!
Combining their health and wellbeing expertise, along with their own honest experiences of all things motherhood - expect chats on birth, surviving maternity leave, fitness and nutrition, sleep, toddler tantrums and much more!
And we're big fans of The Intended Parent's Podcast, in which mums Fran and Kreena share their unconventional journeys to motherhood and in doing so explore surrogacy from the perspective of the girl next door.
