    How to tackle your life admin

    How to tackle your life admin

    On this episode of the KICPOD Steph and Laura chatted with Mia Northrop, the co-author of Life Admin Hacks and co-host of the Life Admin Life Hacks podcast.

    We all know how overwhelming life admin can be so we asked Mia to share her top tips and ticks on how you can best manage your life admin tasks.

    Mia encourages us to identify our life admin pain points so that we can take control, stress less, save money, feel more organised and manage our time more effectively. We’re also reminded that in order to get on top of our life admin and set ourselves up for success, we need to first make the time to set up the tools and systems that are going to help us manage it in the long run.

    So whether you’re needing to consolidate your super, ensure you’re getting the best possible price on your insurance or make meal prepping a priority, Mia’s tips, tactics and strategies will help you to get on top of it all.

    Educating & Empowering You for Birth & Beyond with Midwife Zoe

    Educating & Empowering You for Birth & Beyond with Midwife Zoe

    Today's guest on this episode of the KICBUMP pod is Zoe, a midwife motivated to empower and educate women through all things pregnancy, birth and beyond.

    Steph asked Zoe a number of questions you as a community sent through, and reminisced on her own experience with midwives and birth too.

    We hope you leave this podcast feeling just that little bit more educated and ready for what birth and beyond has in store for you, and that no matter what happens… you’re not alone.

    How do I know if I ACTUALLY want kids?

    How do I know if I ACTUALLY want kids?

    On this episode of the KICPOD, Steph and Laura spoke to journalist and published author Gina Rushton. After being faced with the decision about whether she herself wanted children, Gina was inspired to investigate why we now feel so unsure of whether we want to become parents.

    This discussion reveals the modern complex considerations that people, in particular women now face when deciding on whether they want to bring a child into the world. From navigating the relationship with yourself and your personal circumstances to the wider issues of climate change and inflation, it’s no wonder that we are now thinking long and hard about the decision to have a child.

    We hope that this episode brings comfort to those unsure of whether parenthood is for them and to remind you that it’s totally normal, valid and justified to be confused about what your future might hold when it comes to parenthood.

    Gina's first book The Most Important Job in the World is out now:

Couldn’t recommend more

I absolutely love this podcast and look forward to listening every Wednesday! I personally find it super helpful navigating my 20s, adulthood and womanhood. The topics range from being practically useful to helping me with my own relationships and the way I see the world. Thank you Steph and Laura!
