They’re expensive, sometimes annoying and the best thing that’s ever happened to us. But there’s so much more to being a mom that no one really talks about. Betches Moms is a podcast that deals with all the real sh*t that happens - like what to do when your toddler figures out TikTok, the fact that the baby’s not the only one who has to wear a diaper after birth, or your mother-in-law constantly criticizing you for eating carbs or drinking coffee. Relax, it’s decaf. Hosts Aleen Dreksler and Brittany Levine share stories and insights, interview guests, and have honest conversations about what it’s really like being, and becoming, a mom. They may not be experts (that’s what the expert guests are for) but they have plenty of opinions and life experience to share. Each week they answer questions about the sides of pregnancy and motherhood that everyone experiences, but you rarely hear about. You know, the moments in between those perfect looking Insta posts. So get ready to lock yourself in the bathroom (or wherever else you hide from your kids) and listen to this podcast. Because you’ll literally never be alone again.

Plus, they offer some practical tips for finding balance in the division of labor and sharing the mental load. Finally, they read a listener-submitted No Mom Guilt all about taking a moment away from your kids to look out for yourself.

    How Unhealthy Is Social Media For Kids?

    How Unhealthy Is Social Media For Kids?

    In this special crossover episode with Betches Moms and Oversharing, hosts Jordana Abraham and Dr Naomi Bernstein talk all about parenthood, changing social dynamics, and how long we should wait before exposing kids to social media. From TikTok to Instagram (and everything in between) Naomi shares her experience with setting boundaries, and they explore whether or not it’s a losing battle for parents. They also talk about how things have changed since this generation of parents were kids, and what the equivalent of social media used to be. Finally, they read a listener’s No Mom Guilt email all about putting your kids in organized sports. Are we living vicariously through our kids, or just trying to give them a chance to have the same experiences we had?

    I’m Not Like A Regular Mom, I’m A Cool Mom

    This week, Aleen and Brittany have a very special final episode planned. They collected clips from previous episodes that best summarized their biggest mom milestones. They react, reflect and give new and future moms the advice they wish someone would have given them. If you were to give your past self advice, what would it be? To end the show, they read one last “No Mom Guilt” where a new mom was inspired by past No Mom Guilts to take her first vacation away with her friends and had a wonderful time.

I LOVE this podcast!

No one knows I’m pregnant yet (except my hubby), so I’ve been listening to this podcast daily to learn and get some reassurance. I started from some of the early episodes where Brit and Aileen are pregnant and I love that it feels like a chat with my girlfriends. They talk about the things I actually am curious about in a relatable way. I’m so bummed that this podcast has ended, but I still have plenty of episodes to go. Here’s to hoping they bring this back before I run out of episodes 😂

podcasts for fun ,
