    Join us for unfiltered real time Q&A during our first ever virtual Modern Mamas Podcast Retreat! We came together virtually for a weekend of connection, solidarity, special guests (huge thank you to Liz Wolfe and Kezia Neusch), flows, and so much love shared.

    Jess and Laura share real and raw responses to thoughtful questions straight from the virtual retreat attendees themselves. Tune in for tears, strength, growth, and some things never shared before.

Joelle S. ,

My absolute FAVORITE podcast!

The Modern Mamas podcast is the BEST! I’ve been listening since early in my first pregnancy, with my now 18-month-old. I went back and listened to the episodes from the beginning because I just couldn’t get enough information. Laura and Jess- you guys truly shaped me as a mother and my parenting style through everything you’ve presented here. I am forever grateful and I look forward to listening to episodes every week. Thank you guys 💗💗💗

Great podcast

I’ve been listening to the Modern Mamas podcast for about a year or so now. I found it before I became pregnant and now have a 5 month old. I appreciate Laura and Jess being open and honest about their own parenting journeys. I find myself often thinking my parenting style is likely quite different than theirs, however, it doesn’t keep me from listening. It honestly makes me think even more that we can have different philosophies or styles and still learn from other mamas! Thanks for all you do to make this podcast each week.

Support

Long time listener, long time “friend” ;) , and now Patreon supporter. I started listening to this podcast many years ago and it’s been my go to throughout many different seasons of my life and now even more so as a mama! Jess and Laura, I so appreciate the vulnerability and candid conversation you bring. You lead with grace, support, bravery, and joy. You just show up! Thanks for bringing a variety of topics to your listeners to expand and challenge but also with a place of no judgement and support. I SO appreciate and love being part of a grander community that you both have created that I hope to continue to be more involved in. Much love to you all. Thanks for all you do!
