1. Scummy Mummies

This listen is for the less-than-perfect parent who’s eager to discuss the ups, downs and all the wacky things inbetween. Hosted by comedians Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn, recent episodes include discussions on keeping your kids safe online and how to manage screen time.

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.
