This podcast is not only impeccably produced but insanely informative!! I’m so glad I found it and feel so empowered and informed from each incredible episode. Jessica the host is not only thorough asking incredible questions but also thoughtful and sensitive as she approaches a wide variety of topics with her guests!! A++++
On this podcast, you can find all the information you need to prepare for motherhood, from practical to emotional and spiritual. It’s a great mix of information and inspiration, and it doesn’t shy away from controversial topics. Love it!
I absolutely love the wide range of topics covered by other mamas and professionals in their fields. Jessica a great host, learning tons, while sharing that information with so many other women and mothers/mothers-to-be. Jessica asks all the right questions for inquiring mothers on a broad range of topics. The information is so wonderful and I can tell she truly cares about the topics as well as getting out to other women. Thank you so much for sharing this with the world Jess! You are empowering women to learn about their options, advocate for themselves, and build community. Grateful to be listening along with you!
I was so happy when I came across this podcast. I am now pregnant with my first, but started listening long before. Love that there is so much great information here to help for all stages and preparing! Highly recommend!
Jess is the perfect combination of empowering and empathetic—her podcast gives a realistic glimpse of the pregnancy, birth and postpartum process, recognizing how hard it can be but highlighting the beauty and joy nonetheless. Mamas in Training is a must-listen for anyone preparing to embark on the motherhood journey who is looking to counter the mainstream media perspective of fear with one of hope and joy.
As a soon-to-be mom this podcast is chalk-full of great info! I love that the episodes are manageable too & still so informative. Jessica does a great job of getting topics together I have questions about or things I didn't know I had questions about. Subscribe & save your favorites.
Jessica Lorion has provided a safe, intelligent and informative space for everyone interested in the many facets of planning, expecting and caring for a baby. For all the women who ever heard their mothers birth story and winced, this podcast will gently hold your hand as you understand the power you have over your own journey. I have no doubt that the words of Jessica and her wonderful guests have been an incredible comfort to her listeners in times of uncertainty and worry. It is true that knowledge is power and Mamas in Training clearly knows this. Recommended to all my curious friends, family and current mothers I know. PS: I'm not a mum or planning yet so don't let that stop you from learning the ropes! This is for everyone
Love what Jessica is doing here to support the preconception stage of life. There’s so much to be gained from taking the intentional time to prepare your mind, body and spirit for such a transformational life event. Jessica does such a great job of bringing a bunch of resources to the table. Highly recommend!
This podcast was the best one I had listened to for a while I loved the truth and honesty that Jessica shared, The podcast I listened to was Episode 94 where Jessica shared har an amazing story about why she started a podcast. Thank you for sharing your story,
I absolutely love this podcast! It's so real and honest about everything in motherhood. There have been so many times while listening to it that I thought the speaker took the words right out of my head or that I finally had words for things I was feeling and didn't know how to put it into words. I have recommended this to so many of mom friends. The Facebook group is so up lifting and I love all the different topics that are covered. This has become a nightly listen for me or when I driving I listing. I cannot recommend this podcast enough!
Jessica is pioneering the path for mamas to be. A champion and a beacon of knowledge- she goes out of her way to make sure mamas in training will have all the accessible knowledge they need to! We usually see new moms going through their journey and then going back to help other new moms. Jessica has flipped the stereotype and I am confident that all her resources are going to help SO MANY MAMMAS! I loved being a guest on the show and sharing my knowledge of health insurance for maternity coverage for mamas all over the nation.
As a first time mom, I’ve learned so much from Jess and her guests! This podcast offers real, raw, and valuable stories that help normalize the pregnancy and postpartum experience. A must listen!!
Jess’s podcast is perfect. She is real, raw, and relevant when it comes to covering any and all topics relating to motherhood.
Jessica Is such an incredible resource and gift when it comes to having important conversations about motherhood. She’s easy to relate to you, enjoyable to listen to you, and bring such valuable information
Jessica and her guests provide so much, valuable info to expecting and planning moms! As a parent I can say that I desperately wish we had the advice, knowledge and resources they offer.
Not only is Jessica’s openness to learning right along side of all of us women and her passion and empathy for mama life so very clear, her voice is so very soothing and joyful to listen to. Even as a birth professional, I have learned so much from Mamas In Training. I often recommend this podcast not only women thinking about becoming a mom but seasoned moms and their partners. I love that Jessica is committed to learning and giving a space for all the parts of motherhood. The good, the bad, and the ugly of parenting. Thank you Jessica for the work you do!
Great podcast for expecting mothers and into motherhood. Always providing great content, educational topics and supportive environment. Would highly recommend!
Love this podcast and the tone Jessica sets for mamas. Bringing the truths of motherhood to the forefront as a way to prepare new moms and help those in the trenches is so wonderful and needed! Thank you for delivering so much information in such a loving and supportive way ❤️
Jessica reached out to me on Instagram when I posted somewhere about having a difficult experience as a motherless single mama. I’ve been so fearful going at it without much support but she recommended two Mamas in Training shows that were so inspiring! One was on single mamas and another on motherless mamas. Hearing their stories revived my hope and confidence. I then listened to a bunch of other episodes and have enjoyed how each interview is conducted: with rawness and passion. A must listen for all mamas to be❤️
Jessica and her guests give so much good advice from different perspectives to all new and expecting mamas out there. Whatever you’re anxious about or wish you had more info on, listen in and you’ll feel more at peace and prepared to keep on being the mom you’re meant to be. ⭐️
Honest and raw interviews of moms sharing their journey. Heartfelt, open and relatable. The best ever!!
Jessica is the perfect hostess for this podcast. She has such a great heart for wanting to help future and new mamas out there. I wish I had this before I became a mom! Bingeable!
As an expectant, first time mama, Jess’s podcast has been an invaluable resource to me. Her thoughtful, compassionate, relatable conversations not only educate, but also foster such a beautiful sense of community. Her wide range of guests, and their experiences and perspectives, provide wonderful REAL LIFE tips and make you feel like you are not alone as you navigate the journey, at all states of and in all types of motherhood. Thank you Jess!!
This podcast is wonderful. Jessica’s energy is calming and inquisitive. I love that she is exploring these topics not just to share with us but for her own journey one day when she has a baby. Her guests are knowledgeable and the interviews are meaningful and enjoyable.
I really love the wide range of perspectives featured on this podcast & have discovered other great content creators that Jessica has had on her podcast. The more the merrier I say! Jessica has such a soothing voice and I really found this podcast helpful during my first few months post partum as a new mom during the pandemic. Keep the great interviews coming! I just love the format of the show & everything about it :)
Jessica is a wonderful host and mama in training that interviews incredible parents. They each have beautiful and unique stories about parenthood. This podcast truly is a window into the reality of being a parent and all it entails...
This is so informative and helpful for me as I am an exclusive pumper . I feel like the more info the better . Pumping seems to be a newer concept and can bring up weird feelings to those who breastfeed and formula feed . It can feel very isolating . The episodes are relevant and beyond helpful. Jessica’s voice is so calming also 😋
I was searching for a podcast on pumping one (pumping session) night and found this podcast. I am a mother of a 22 month old boy and a 5 month old girl. I have to say, I liked it to so much that I actually went back to episode 1 and starting hearing all the following episodes. I could relate on so many levels to so many of the momma guests and I was actually quite surprised! Hearing the different stories, vulnerabilities and resilience helped me so much to actually accept my own journey. I’m so thankful for Jessica (lovely host) and all the (amazing) mammas that have so kind and openly shared their experiences. If you are a mother (or a mamma in training!) and want to hear beautiful real stories of motherhood, this is the podcast for you. Thank youuu Jess, you have definitely kept me company on so many silent (and lonely I guess) pumping nights..
Jessica’s podcast provides the safety every new and expecting mom needs to navigate motherhood with real life experiences. I so appreciate the topics that we can all relate to and feel so much community in knowing we are not navigating this wild ride of motherhood alone. Thank you for creating this space <3
This is a great podcast for moms, moms to be, aspiring moms, or as Jessica might say ‘moms-in training’. Listening is like hanging out with friends who just might be knowledgeable on what you are experiencing. It’s helpful, informative, and comforting.
Jessica is amazing! She brings on the best guests and gives so much enlightenment for mamas or mamas to be. Be ready to get educated and inspired from each episode.
Relatable, unique, and informative! There’s not much support out there for breastfeeding moms, and this podcast definitely provides that. So many different stories and experiences to listen to! All of them relatable! Thank you!
I have enjoyed Jessica's thoughtful conversations and willingness to allow us to learn along with her. If you're already a mama or going to be one soon, this is the podcast for you!
I just had my 2nd baby a month ago, and discovered this podcast recently. It it great to hear all the different Mama stories while I’m in the thick of it.
I have literally listened to this podcast while pumping! Thanks Mamas for making me feel not so alone.
The Pumping Podcast is a wonderful space for mothers (and all parents) to hear other’s stories and to start discussion around many topics that we as a society dont discuss enough, or openly. No matter the topic at hand, even if its an experience you’ve not gone through, you can relate to something in it, and learn from them as well! No ones experience is universal, every person, birth, and parenting approach is different, and by sharing these stories, the Pumping Podcast has created an open honest community for people to learn, be moved, grieve, and celebrate together. Jessica does an amazing job guiding each interview, and has such a soothing voice!
Jessica is such a lovely host with a soothing voice - perfect for talking about the nuances of new motherhood. The topics are interesting and appropriate for all of the swirling aspects of parenthood which can feel overwhelming at the start. This show is a fantastic resource for parents!
Such a great podcast especially during quarantine!! Learning so much and laughing always a good combo!!
This is such a great podcast!! During this pandemic with a five week old it has been very isolating at times. This podcast is so entertaining, heartwarming and comforting to listen to while nursing my little guy or juggling any mom task for my two sons when I need to distract my mind from the current events. Thank you for creating this and bringing a sense of connection to my little world, especially during these trying times!
Jessica is a “mama-in-training,” and the fact that she created this podcast to help her mama friends and also to learn all she could before becoming a mom herself speaks volumes about the lovely human she is. Her warm voice and thoughtful questions make for engaging conversations with interesting guests—a worthwhile listen for any mama!
Outstanding, empathetic voice, in depth knowledge of subject matter with guests.
Jessica (the host) had the amazing idea to learn "motherhood" as a future mama by interviewing mothers on a variety of topics. This approach really helps dig out the details of the mothers she has on the show, and allows for a variety and diversity of thought that is hard to find anywhere else. There's no bias here, just good content. Highly recommend to all future and current parents! As a father and husband, I've learned a lot.
Jess has created a wonderful platform for women to share their stories. She’s an empathetic host and asks thoughtful questions of her guests, which makes for a really interesting and informative listening experience. Thanks for creating a really important podcast!
Such informative and positive messaging for ANYONE stepping into the role of motherhood or thinking about becoming a parent. Sharing our personal experiences sheds new perspective on what might be otherwise be felt like a journey alone. <3
I love this podcast! She interviews so many people different and I love listening to all their stories!
Jess was phenomenal to work with; timely, organized and a huge thought leader. She has created a platform to showcase stories so that women can relate, connect and learn. When you think of shifting a culture from isolation to togetherness, you need everyone and everything to be involved. I love what Jess is going. Subscribe, subscribe, subscribe!
Jessica has a calming warmth that makes the listener feel incredibly at ease and engaged. So grateful she is sharing these personal experiences of motherhood with all of us. Thank you, Jessica, for creating such a beautiful village for mamas and mamas-to-be!
Jess has the most soothing voice and is such a wonderful host. The content is diverse and gives every type of listener something to enjoy and relate to.
This podcast is a fun, informative, and educational podcast for parents, pre-parents, and anyone curious to know more about what it’s really like having children. I love that Jess has a desire to learn as much as she can about all things parenting before she begins her own adventure. Overall a really enjoyable podcast! Keep up in the informative work!! There is everything right about trying to be prepared for this journey!
I love this podcast! It’s so fresh and real. There are so many real moms (and parents) with such great tips, advice and stories to share. I also love Jessica’s soft demeanor, warm heart and inviting presentation with each new episode!
As a new Mom I am finding that even with a fuller heart there can be moments of feeling alone. This podcast has been an amazing reminder that we are all in this together!! Kudos to Jessica, our host for showcasing these stories in a beautiful way. I love listening to the pumping podcast on my commute to and from picking up our baby girl. Makes the time away pass a little quicker!
Pumping has always been my least favorite part of motherhood. I actually pumped while listening and laughing long and hard through EP 3! Soooo much no one tells you!
As a mother who pumps it can often be an isolating experience, this is a refreshing and informative podcast allowing me to learn, while feeling inspired by other women. A great way to pass the time.
Our journeys are all so different and this podcast highlights and explores so many experiences and journeys to parenthood. It’s about time we talk about all the dirties, the uglies and the funnies along with the beauty of raising children. Kudos to Jessica for being thoughtful and caring in her interviews and allowing each participant to tell their story differently.
It’s so nice to hear such varying, important, honest viewpoints from Mamas! What a refreshing podcast!
Love listening to all of the mamas! I’m a mom of a toddler and I feel that the more mom support the better! So inspirational and encouraging.
Just listened to the Broadway mama episode. As someone who is an actor considering children, this was super helpful and inspiring!
I’m in the thick of this with a one month old, and it’s a pleasure to listen as I sit on the couch between feeds, bouncing my sweet little snuggler who refuses to be set down, or the off chance I make it outside to walk the dog. Thank you for normalizing so much of the postpartum “uh, wat??” for moms and moms to be!
Honest and raw interviews of moms sharing their journey. Heartfelt, open and relatable.
This podcast is so helpful in normalizing the stigma around motherhood. There's a lot of things that are still taboo to talk about, but that needs to change ASAP. It's 2019 for heaven's sake! Jessica is a trailblazer in this genre. She is thoughtful in her questions and an expert at listening to her guests share these valubale stories. I think every human being should listen to this podcast for the good of mankind. Enjoy!
Love this podcast and the view points it brings to this parenting journey. I’m excited to hear more!
This podcast gives me such comfort as a mother and woman who has experienced the immense joy AND pain of birthing a child.
This podcast just hits home. It's said over and over again that it takes a village to raise children. I think it takes a village to raise mothers. We all need to hear these stories to take comfort in our own journeys. Every story is just one variation of normal and it's so refreshing to hear the variety of stories, and yet the familiar feeling that comes from listening to all of them. Thank you for putting together some easy listening that is so relatable and needed!
