As a mom, having a way to get positive input in your ears on a daily basis is so important. It can be the difference between feeling calm, regulated, confident, and happy, or otherwise feeling overwhelmed, irritated, frustrated, and more.

I’ve been listening to podcasts for over a decade now, and they have been such an incredible source of inspiration.

I also have my own podcast—Mom On Purpose With Natalie Bacon—where I release a new podcast episode every Wednesday.

You can listen in here:

As a real mom just like you, I have hard moments in parenting and motherhood. When I’m not working, I’m not “Mom On Purpose.” So, I frequently go back and listen to my own episodes to help me manage overwhelm, navigate hard moments, set intentions, and show up as the mom I want to be.

Aside from my own podcast, here are my favorite podcasts that I think are the top best podcasts for moms to listen to.

1. HERself

Listen here: HERSelf with Abby Green and Amy Kiefer

Podcast description: As women, we are constantly comparing ourselves to others. But your life isn’t supposed to look like hers! Being your best self means standing firm in your decisions and always being willing to grow with a purpose. Amy and Abby get vulnerable and real with an honest look into the challenges and triumphs we all face. Every woman listening gets the opportunity to choose what life looks like for HERself.

2. Good Inside with Dr. Becky

3. Momwell

Listen here: Momwell with Erica Djossa

Podcast description: Happy as a Mother has evolved into Momwell, same show and mission–new name. We often enter motherhood envisioning joy, nurturing, peace, and love. But the reality can blindside us. Nobody tells us about Mom Rage, overstimulation, intrusive thoughts, or other mental health struggles. Unfortunately, when we seek help, we might face a lack of support, a system that doesn’t put moms first, and a world that turns a blind eye to the challenges of motherhood. We’re here to change that. We believe that moms deserve access to community, support, and mental health literacy. If you’re struggling with motherhood, you’re not alone–and you’re not failing. On The Momwell Podcast, host and psychotherapist Erica Djossa teaches strategies to help you cope with the psychological and emotional load of motherhood and prioritize your mental health and wellbeing. Erica shares the best kept secrets of the therapy world and interviews other professionals (psychologists, pediatricians, psychiatrists, fertility specialists, lactation consultants, and more!) who provide their expertise to empower you on your motherhood journey.

9. Life’s A Tripp

Listen here: Life’s A Tripp with Ryan and Shannon Tripp

Podcast description: Welcome to Life’s a Tripp. We are Shan and Ryan Tripp.

We are just a couple of small-town kids who fell quickly in love and couldn’t wait to do this life together!

We started having kids, were both working in healthcare and bought our first house right down the road from family… life was great – but something was missing.

We were happy and blessed, but we also felt a little stuck. We realized we weren’t moving closer to our dreams for our future and family.

So, we sold everything. The house, the cars, the clothes, all the stuff, everything – except for the kids – we kept the kids.

As scary as it was to make this big change – we couldn’t stop thinking about it; we knew in our hearts this was what God wanted for our family.

We packed our entire life into seven suitcases, grabbed our four small children by the hands, and jumped on a one-way flight to Hawaii.

From there, our whole world opened up.

We’ve experienced the highs and lows of parenting, marriage, running a business from home, finances, moving across the ocean, making new friends, and maybe doing things a bit differently to ultimately make the very most of our family life – and that’s what we want to share with you.

We are so grateful you are here, joining us as we pull back the curtains to have some fun together and chat about what we’ve learned during our unusual journey and what we’re doing each day to make the most of it.

It’s true what they say, “Life’s a Tripp,” – but despite the chaos, we want to show you that life can be lived on your terms.

This is our story. How will you write yours?

A Final Note

As a mom, having amazing podcasts queued up to help you throughout whatever season you’re in is so helpful for your mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. My favorite way to listen is to start the day with an episode when I’m getting ready or listen while I’m doing house work. Either way, it’s a daily dose of positivity that truly helps me life a better life. That is my hope for you, too, my friend. Give it a try!
