Podcasts are really popular these days, and it's fun to find new ones to listen to while going grocery shopping, walking around your neighborhood, or when you're taking some time for yourself with a steaming hot cup of coffee.
When you can take ten minutes to listen to something inspiring or you have some free time to run errands, it's a good idea to download some podcasts. There are so many out there that feature fellow moms sharing stories about their children and parenting subjects. The following 10 podcasts are inspiring and so relatable.
10 Mom Brain
Mom Brain is hosted by Daphne Oz, cookbook author and former co-host of The Chew, and Hilaria Baldwin, a writer and yoga instructor (and also known as Alec Baldwin's wife).
As the official description of the podcast says, "We get it. Being a mom is full-on and full-time. Equal parts FUN and WTF. Our kids don’t come with instructions, and it’s ok if we don’t have all the answers. We’ll figure it out together." The episodes range from a discussion of probiotics to interviews with celebrity moms like actress Lindsay Price (who went on the show to talk about adoption).

Sometimes you want to hear from other moms and learn about their experiences. This can be so comforting. That's why the Modern Mamas Podcast is another podcast that will inspire moms.
