A podcast about you, not just your kids

Most parenting podcasts focus on the kids (how to get them to listen, how to get them to stop fighting, how to manage their screentime), and while we do offer resources for common parenting challenges, our bigger focus is on you, the mom. Because when you feel supported and fulfilled, everything else within parenting will feel so much easier.

This is why our work is based around three pillars to help you become a more self-assured mom:

pillar one

Know your Self

pillar two

Honor your Needs

pillar three

Love your People
Rachel Nielson, host of 3 in 30 Takeaways for Moms Podcast, smiling and with a bright idea!

Notice that two out of the three pillars are about YOU?

Most moms dive in deep with the third pillar–learning all the parenting tips and strategies–and then we wonder why we still feel unsettled and unfulfilled within our motherhood. It's because the foundation isn't there, the deep knowing of and caring for ourselves.

Hi, I'm Rachel

host and founder of 3 in 30 Podcast.

I am a heart-sharer, a collector of practical ideas, and a mother of two miracles.

My children joined our family through adoption and IVF, and I was sure that after my long fight to become a mother, I would love every minute of it.

Well, it turns out motherhood is much harder than I anticipated before having kids (can you relate?)... and I found myself feeling incredibly lost and unfulfilled within that role.

In an effort to find more joy, I tried to read parenting books and listen to parenting podcasts –but they were all so long and rambling. As a busy mom, I just wanted a parenting resource that would get to the point already.

I couldn't find one, so I created it. That's how 3 in 30 came to be!

In every episode, I utilize my expertise as a former high school English teacher to craft episodes that are concise and actionable. I love to interview experts and pull out their best takeaways to help overwhelmed moms.
