This podcast is exactly what I needed!

Having recently had a bub, this podcast got me through the bleary eyed 2am feeds during the first 6 weeks. I always come away from each episode with so many useful postpartum tips and feel a little less alone knowing that so many women have been through exactly what I am going through as I navigate the early stages of motherhood ! Naomi is an amazing podcast host and has such a grounding presence. She is doing such important work for new mummas. Can’t wait for the next episode :-)

Love the podcast and I wish it was around when I became a mother to my first baby. The stories are honest, vulnerable and so reassuring. I love hearing and knowing that so many other women have shared similar ups and downs.

Amazing resource

I have been following your podcast since your interview with Megan Gale and I am so glad I stumbled across this podcast.
I have a toddler and I’m pregnant with my second. Every episode is so relatable. I find myself learning new things or just reassuring myself that I am not alone in the craziness of parenthood. Thank you, Naomi! Keep doing what you’re doing!
