Atomic Moms Podcast

With Ellie Knaus


AM Background.jpg

I had no clue how to do this parenting thing. Before kids, I was the person at the party asking not to hold the baby.

Hi! I’m Ellie Knaus, host of Atomic Moms. Once I became a parent, this podcast became my personal research project on how to find my motherhood mojo. Since 2014, I’ve been interviewing leading experts, current best-selling authors, and the most respected early childhood development experts out there.

I was surprised by the personal growth even “good-enough” parenting demands. Luckily, there are researchers and psychologists and honest mom-friends who can help us figure out our stuff and lead us back to the good stuff. And when things suck, we can commiserate. Motherhood comes more naturally to some than others, but we can all find our maternal sweet spot and muddle through the meltdowns. Consider our 200+ podcast library your on-demand resource!

No judgement, raw and real. Ellie makes me laugh every single episode because she’s so relatable. I love learning and commiserating. Wish we could be friends in real life.

This is a great place to find new authors and to dig deep into what it means to be a good (enough) parent. It’s a support group you can attend on your own schedule. The host is on a perpetual quest to become a better person, to understand more and to connect with her audience authentically. If you’re feeling lonely, listen up, you have a friend in Ellie.

I found this podcast shortly after getting pregnant. It helped shape my mind frame and how I see myself as a mother.
