    A second baby brings all sorts of joys and challenges to a family. Everyone talks about how difficult it is for your firstborn to suddenly have to share your attention. But it's also an adjustment for you. With less downtime, you have to learn how to divide your mental and physical energy between each child, not to mention your partner. Two mums share their experience of this adjustment period- their tips for a smooth transition and the challenges that you may encounter. Despite any difficulties you might experience during those first few months, get ready for those precious moments when you watch them play together.Hosted and Produced by Ally Barnes.

    S1 11 | Milestones

    Every parent wants to be confident that their child is hitting the milestones that they should be. But the reality is that oftentimes, the 'timeline' that our kids are supposed to follow for when they 'should be' rolling over, babbling, transitioning to solid food, walking, etc. etc. can cause a lot of middle-of-the-night, anxiety-induced google searching.In this episode we discuss the different experiences we can have as mothers of reconciling the timeline our kids actually follow with what the text books say. Of course, as always, if you have any concerns about your child's health and development, please seek the advice of a medical professional.Hosted and Produced by Ally Barnes.

    S1 09 | Faith and Motherhood

    Being a parent teaches us in the clearest terms how God, our Father in Heaven, relates to us — His love, His frustrations, His compassion for us. The way we feel about our kids is about as close as we can get to grasping how God feels about us, His children. In this episode, three mums share how their motherhood journeys have defined their faith and how their faith has refined their experience of motherhood. Hosted and Produced by Ally Barnes.

Loving it

Three episodes in and I find myself smiling, crying and nodding along. It’s both helpful and engaging. 6 months in to motherhood, and no mother’s group to attend, podcasts like this is where it’s all it!

It’s a winner!

This podcast delivers an honest reflection on motherhood from a Christian perspective. It’s funny, useful, relatable and raw. I love the way it acknowledges that there isn’t a magic recipe or one size fits all approach to raising our kids, but at the same time encourages the value of listening and learning from each other’s experiences. I highly recommend this for any first time mumma out there about to enter onto the crazy ride that is parenting!
