So real!

What I love the most about this podcast is the realness of Amanda and her guests. She is relatable and approachable and tells it like it is. Best “momcast” going!

Fav podcast

My favourite mom podcast, Amanda always says things that I have thought or struggle with in my own head. Loved the episode on default parent, exactly how I feel!

NotMotherGoose ,

Amazing

I LOVE this podcast!! Every episode explains exactly how I’m feeling being a new mom. I love that Amanda showcases real moms who describe struggles with maternal mental health, body image, and learning how to parent in a pandemic. Highly recommend this podcast to all moms (And dads could learn a thing or too as well!)
