Perfect Podcasts for Parents, Part 1

September 17, 2016


 In an effort to be the best doula I can be, I am always seeking new information. I want to learn everything I can about pregnancy, childbirth, the postpartum period, and newborn care. Luckily, I absolutely love these topics and enjoy researching them. The only problem is that running a business while caring for two young children and a home leaves little time for reading. Fortunately there is a fantastic solution: podcasts.


Discovering podcasts a few years ago has had a huge impact on my life. Now I have an opportunity to learn about anything I want to by simply listening to a podcast on my phone. The best part? I get to listen to the shows while doing other things. Walking, folding laundry and sweeping the floors can now be downright enjoyable! Here is a list of some of my favorites that are filled with useful information for expecting families and parents.


For Parents:


All Things Breastfeeding




The Birth Hour




Healthy Births Happy Babies


New Mommy Media

(New Mommy Media is the home of six shows: Preggie Pals, Parent Savers, The Boob Group, Twin Talks, and Motivating Mom.)


For Birthworkers:


These shows are created for doulas, but are full of valuable information for parents!


Dearest Doula (be sure to check out episode 46!)


toRaise Questions Doula Podcast


I hope you will check out some of these shows and that you enjoy them! Next week I will post a list of ten of my favorite episodes. It will be hard to narrow them down!
