Women get bombarded with all sorts of advice on maternity: a lot of it unsolicited, and often outdated or just plain incorrect.

Birthful hopes to make it all easier, by giving you tried and tested tips and tools that you can use. From “laid-back” breastfeeding to safer bed-sharing, circumcision to VBACs, we’ll give you well-researched, evidence-based information so you can make the choices that best fit your family.
The Parents On Demand Network (The POD Network) wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the support of our founding members. These podcasts joined our network in the beginning because they believed in the concept of working together with other podcasters so we can all succeed. Even when you know something is a good idea, it can be difficult to “take a chance”, especially when there aren’t statistics to prove it will work. These podcasts took that chance so we could launch the network and help parents and families all around the world.

Mom Deconstructed Podcast is a podcast for parents of all walks of life. Through storytelling, we are creating a supportive, inclusive community for mothers to grow. Our abiding hope is to change the conversation around motherhood and parenting. Whether you’re a mom by nature or circumstance, you’re doing one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Yet, our culture has taught us to drag each other down rather than offer our support in the purest of ways, as the simple good intention it should always be.
Our goal is to break down the walls that have formed between moms, families, and communities to begin to heal the rift that’s caused so many moms to feel alone and isolated in this great big, scary world of ours. This journey of motherhood is uncertain enough. To do this, we believe honest and open conversations are the place to start. Let’s show the world that we’re not afraid to be brave, vulnerable and open in the face of all the negativity we so often see. Let’s get beyond the superficial and delve into the hopes and dreams that inspired us, the struggles and failures that tested us, and the uphill climbs that formed the people we are today. We hope that spreading this message will create a community of like-minded women (men, families, all are welcome) that will lift each other up and continue this message of hope and abiding love for years to come.
The Mom Wants More Podcast is for women who have a dream in their heart and a passion they want to pursue, women who believe that motherhood is their most important calling but not their only calling.

Listeners will gain inspiration and encouragement from bi-weekly interviews with women who are uncovering and pursuing their passion in the middle of a messy life. Women who have made their passion into successful businesses, side-hustles, or simply something they love to do.
We encourage moms to uncover & pursue their passions, trade mom-guilt for joy, have fun along the way!
