Inspiring mom podcast!
I am loving this podcast! Ellie Knaus packs every episode with tons of amazing content, guests, and interviews that will motivate, uplift and inspire you. I highly recommend!

A must-listen for all moms!
stumbled across this show when I was searching for interviews with Dr Tina Payne Bryson (that episode is GOLD if you listen to nothing else all year!) and I realized I really like Ellie! She has interesting and relevant experts on. For me though, the host makes or breaks the show; if a host is annoying, even if the content is good, i can’t listen. But Ellie is cool as hell. She is humble and relatable, and I always feel like I’m listening to a conversation between my close friends.

Awesome parenting podcast
So happy I found this real talk grounded guidance especially during a pandemic but will go beyond that. Reaffirms parenting decisions and introduces new ideas. Rock on!

Great even if your not a parent
I kind of just came across this podcast because the host was on another podcast I listen to and I find it very insightful in my own life even thought I don’t have children myself

So good!!
This podcast is awesome! Episode 256 is very informative and I love that she was willing to put herself out there and have this conversation with two amazing women and asking the hard questions, having the uncomfortable conversation! Definitely going to continue to listen to Atomic Moms!

Great podcast!!
This has been my go-to breastfeeding entertainment. Ellie really does feel like that late night mom friend as she explores all kinds of issues important to me as a parent and educator. She brings an intelligent, relatable voice to dense topics. This podcast is not just for mamas, either!! My husband listens also. Do yourself a favor and subscribe.

One of my faves
I’ve been listening since the beginning - even before I was pregnant with my first daughter! I can honestly say that the podcast and the conversations Ellie has brought to us over the years have positively influenced my approach to parenting! No joke - my sisters have straight up told me that I’m a much calmer mom than they would have imagined and I attribute it all to Atomic Moms 💕

Great support network for parents
Atomic Moms has introduced me to many valuable tools as a mother. Ellie’s guests are the best advisors on so many facets of life as a busy parent. Listening to the conversations in this podcast have comforted me often and changed my outlook and approach when I needed guidance or just to know that I’m not alone. Thank you, Ellie, for working to share your knowledge and journey with all of us.

Best
This is my favorite podcast since I had kids. Hands down. Discovered it around mother’s day 2018 when I was just back to work after having my first and it really helped me through that tough transition, and it continues to provide great resources through expert interviews and human foibles. I always come away feeling connected. I discovered “the happy sleeper” which is my sleep bible and “Now say this” which is my parenting bible. Highly recommend for any new or experienced mom.

Best Podcast for Moms
Ellie’s podcast is my saving grace during my commute. Her conversations are so relatable and engaging, and in a time of life that can feel isolating and overwhelming, it’s comforting to hear her and her wonderful guests share their candid thoughts and experiences. Her conversations with regular guests Bridget and Claire are among my very favorite episodes — never a dull moment with them! Thanks for all you do, Ellie and team!

Ellie soothes my soul!
I found Atomic Moms at the beginning of this year, and it has changed my workouts and my parenting life! Each podcast is informative and fun, I feel like I’m being extra constructive by getting to workout AND get advice and assurance about parenthood and life. Ellie’s voice is hypnotic and soothing, and also fun and bubbly. I feel like I’ve got a little virtual tribe to help through the guests she has on the show and hearing about her life and kids. You must listen!

My #1 podcast
This podcast has been at the top of my list for years and it still delivers. Don't miss it.

The only podcast I listen to every week
Ellie’s voice is genuine and kind. She asks tough questions, gathers pertinent information from experts, and equips me to be the kinder and more thoughtful parent that I aim to be - while also motivating me to be kinder to myself! Did I mention this review is long overdue? I’ve listened to Ellie since my first child was a newborn and he’s now four years old! My go-to parenting podcast (and life podcast really) by a long shot! You will love, Ellie!

Beyond grateful
Ellie your topics, heartfelt openness, and commitment to thoughtfulness has been a needed companion in my parenting journey. Because of your work I continue to remember that being the best mom I can be starts with parenting my own wounds. Thank you
annepwilliamd
Great parenting tool
I wasn’t very interested to Podcasts, until my friend Margarita shared this podcast with me and it REALLY made a change in my life, and I almost believe in my children life. Parenting is for sure not easy, but it is also not impossible. Atomic Moms has helped me overcome many challenges as a mom and also as an spouse. Great topics! Thank you.

My favorite parenting podcast
Living in a resort mountain town, I sometimes feel a little detached from other moms, but listening to Atomic Moms has given me a connection to like minded moms and a lot of great info about interesting and important topics. I highly recommend it to all parents out there.

Funny, helpful, wise and kind
When I got pregnant with my son I started listening to Atomic Moms, and it’s been a regular companion to me this first year of his life. I’ve learned so much from the experts Ellie interviews and most of all it’s made me feel un-lonely. My fears and worries get shrunk when I’m laughing along and nodding my head to the stories moms share about the insanity, pain and wonder of these years. Thank you for Atomic Moms!

So good! Funny!
I just listened to today’s episode with Ellie, Claire, and Bridget. The 3 of you could do this all the time :) They totally make me laugh and I so needed that while playing with my 3 yr old today! Very genuine, real, funny and just a great listen!!!

Thanks!
This podcast has brightened up so many laundry folding sessions and walks across my college campus! I am only 22 and don't have kids so it's nice to think about how I'll deal with challenges that come up for me years from now when I do, and the positive tone of this podcast really helps me look forward to parenting with something other than blank confusion and vague fear!!

Awesome guests and an invested host!
I started listening about a year ago and love the variety of guests featured on Atomic Moms! I often find myself reading their books after the interview and I feel like the variety of topics keeps my interest from week to week. Surprisingly, I’m a school leader without children of my own, but I’ve found resources and connections to make with families and students both at work and in my family. Thanks Ellie for being such a dynamic host and curating a network of amazing people who are also invested in being the best parents (people interacting with parents, people who live next door to parents, people who have parents, and all of the above) they can be!

Thank you Ellie!
I dont remember exactly how I stumbled upon this, but as a mom of 2 under 2 I feel like I hit the jackpot. My first podcast was “How to be a happier parent” and Ive been hooked ever since. It’s not just that Ellie is real, or the fact that she knows how to tell a story. She is that friend you call when you’ve lost hope and she picks you up. You can relate and learn so much from her. Highly recommend it to any mamas out there!

I love this podcast! Especially when I'm feeling overwhelmed and crazy from the demands of motherhood - I take a moment for myself and listen in, and it never fails to be encouraging and helpful. Thanks for all you do, Ellie!

A Parenting Must!!
Amazing!! One of the top 2 parenting podcasts I listen to!! Love hearing all the positive advice!
AtomicMummy
Long time listener, first time mom
Listening to this podcast has been, for me, a way into “the club” of motherhood at a time where I was longing to join but unable to. The interviews are so insightful that they really pertain to all children of parents and not just the parents that are raising the children. It’s been wonderful to listen to thought-provoking parenting content for years and now that I am happily expecting my first child I feel just a little more prepared and am enjoying the podcast even more.

Every Mama’s Best Friend
If there is one parenting podcast you should be listening to, Atomic Moms is it! From the hilarious banter between her and her husband to the hard hitting topics she covers, Ellie delivers each episode lovingly, candidly, and unbiasedly. I laugh, I cry, I ruminate - I’ve never concluded an episode without feeling more empowered as a mom, partner, etc than before I tune in. Thank you Ellie!

LOVE THIS PODCAST
This is a great podcast for moms. I’ve been listening for a while now. Ellie Knaus is a wonderful host (also a mom) and seeker of parenting advice and resources. I listen to podcasts when commuting to and from work. Atomic Moms is the first podcast I check to look for a new episode. I find Ellie entertaining, and she really does her research in searching for topics and parenting experts. She has also built a community on moms on fb and insta. If you’re a mom and like listening to stuff about parenting, definitely check this one out!

So. Much. Growth.
I am always learning something new and always recommending episodes. So many aha moments. Ellie is real, vulnerable, funny, and she asks the things that all of us are wondering. May have just binge listened to 15 episodes today.

Bingeworthy
I LOVE this podcast and am blowing through the entire series. Ellie is relatable, extremely funny, and a skilled interviewer. Her conversations remind me of intimate chats with my friends - well, if my friends were world-class parenting experts! Anxious, high-achieving and perfectionistic moms who want a gentler experience for their kids will find Ellie and her guests particularly easy to identify with and learn from. Thanks, Ellie - this is the parenting wisdom and encouragement I’ve always needed.
