In the months leading up to my son being born, podcasting became one of my favorite ways to consume information. I didn’t have to venture out of the house to networking events, show up on camera, or interact in real time. I could — literally — lie in bed and listen.
And I did. A lot.
After he was born, my love of podcast listening continued I would pop in my earbuds while walking to daycare pick up, doing dishes, laundry, or driving.
It also became one of my favorite ways to share information. I decided to stop traveling to conferences as regularly with an infant, and showing up on podcasts became a fantastic way to respond to speaking requests.
These are some of my favorite topics and episodes I’ve recorded:
Building your postpartum support network is an area that I have specialized in, as well as personally benefited from. I dive deep into why it’s important and how to do it well in a guest episode of Mom & Mind, hosted by Dr. Kat Kaeni.
The nuts and bolts of planning for maternity leave are by far the most widely shared episodes that I have recorded with the ladies at Being Boss, the Courage and Clarity podcast, and the Start Up Pregnant podcast
Lastly, I have had the opportunity to share my own experience of birth and postpartum in Mexico on the Motherbirth and Doing it at Home podcasts. That was truly special, and I find that those windows into the intimate details of people’s lives and transitions into motherhood are so key.
