Welcome to the Postpartum like a boss podcast

Welcome to Postpartum like a boss where we talk all things early parenthood. Postpartum like a boss is brought to you by Gemma Smith, in unfiltered conversation with parents about the inevitable highs, lows and genuine WTFs of the transition to parenthood.

I’m your host, Gemma Smith and some of the hats I wear (but actually don’t because..mum bun…) include:

  • Principal of Together Pregnancy and Postpartum Pty Ltd
  • Accredited Social Worker
  • Mother of two under six
  • Partner of one over 35
  • Former HR professional

Qualifications I have, (which, ironically, I mainly did for the hats) include:

  • Master of Social Work (MSW)
  • Bachelor of Creative Arts
  • Diploma of Business Management
  • Diploma of Yoga Teaching
  • Newborn Mothers postpartum professional course

My long story short is: I lived a fast life, constantly pushing myself well beyond my limits while striving for success (and adrenal fatigue apparently!). Then, I had my first baby and the rest is complicated, messy, profound and joyful history, which has led me to this work, and to create this podcast.

I created Postpartum like a boss because a vital element of achieving a positive postpartum is a connection to others – and what better way to connect than through sharing our stories?


Postpartum like a boss is for you if you: 

  • are thinking about, or actively trying for a baby 
  • are pregnant and or/ a partner support person
  • have recently given birth or become a parent
  • are returning to work or have young children 
  • are a birth-worker, friend or family member supporting others from pregnancy to postpartum 
  • are someone who doesn’t mind a good laugh and a good cry at the same time
