#20 This Christmas

On the ___ day of #Christmas my true love gave to me....a new episode of the #HeyMaPodcast. Join us this week as we dish on our #holiday must-haves for the little ones and what we hope #Santa brings us for the holiday. Our gift to our listeners you ask (besides this episode)? Con..sis...ten...cy! That's right, in 2019 we vow to bring you weekly episodes—as 2019 is all about no excuses. See you in 2019! Same dope time, same dope place.


#19 Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself…Again.

It's been a long time...we shouldn't have left you without a dope mom to keke with. Let's just say 2018 has been a doozy; if our lives were a book, this chapter would be entitled "For Dope Moms Who Considered Giving Up When Spa Days Aren't Enough". Sometimes, there just isn't some black-girl-magical way to balance your passion project and the demands of everyday life. Sometimes you have to hit pause--even when your inner beast is screaming JUST KEEP GOING, because you know your soul is...


#18 The Mother Hustle with Valeisha Butterfield-Jones

We have a tendency to characterize powerful, successful black women who defy odds and forge new paths in realms often not seen as a place for black women as mythical creatures, as “magical”. As much as we believe that black women are sent from God himself and dipped in unicorn dust, we also recognize that this shit ain’t magic. It’s hard work. And no woman has been as transparent about her journey as Google Executive and WEEN Founder and our big sis Valeisha Butterfield-Jones. Do yourself a...


#17 We Back! Season 2

As fate would have it, two is the number of The Divine feminine. It also symbolizes the union of and peace between different entities...In season two, the women of Hey, Ma will take the brand to new heights. This year you can expect more dope guests, signature events, and the same Hey, Ma straight talk. All Henny straight...no chaser. You can also expect to see more of the women behind the brand and more collaboration with our second brand, #DopeMomApproved. So, with that said.. It's been a...


#16 The Mother Hustle with Ylorie Taylor

“Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of.” – Charles Spurgeon There are times the #MotherHustle extends far beyond juggling play dates, date nights, and board meetings. Sometimes it involves managing circumstances that bring you to your knees and make you question the very foundation of everything you knew to be true in life. What do you do when your faith is tested, your soul is weary, and you can’t form the words to speak? You build. You birth...


#15 The Fertility Challenge with Tai Beauchamp

Join us this week as we sit down to discuss the future of fertility with internationally recognized style influencer, public speaker, media personality, and entrepreneur, Tai Beauchamp. Listen as she shares her experience with egg-freezing and shares insightful advice on nurturing healthy relationships and making yourself a priority. Enjoy.


#14 It’s a Shame

WHAT YOU WON'T DO IS... *woosahs and adjusts crown* We strongly suggest that you that avoid telling a mother how to raise their child in public. ESPECIALLY if you are a non muthaf**king factor stranger... We have all been there. You are in the middle of Target and your child looses every bit of act right in the middle of aisle 7 and some "overly-concerned" passer-by decides to give you their best Dr. Phil advice on what to do with your child. What moms want you to know is that most of us are...


#13 So You Think Your Kid Has Talent with Sharra Dade

In the days of social media we are bombarded with clips of insanely talented kids who are literally giving us LIFE and they are barely beyond the age of a fetus. How many times have you wondered if your little one really has what it takes to make it big in whatever their “ministry” is? Have you ever watched one of those darling kids on Ellen and thought, I know my kid can do that! What makes a child gifted and talented may not always be good grades in school, but a different way of seeing...


#12 Modern Motherhood and Mental Health with La Shell Wooten

We've all heard it a million times before..."Secure your own mask before assisting others”, but that's easy to do when you are strapped in and at cruising altitude and YOU don't have control of the proverbial wheel; but what does that look like in real life? How do manage to "secure your own mask" when you have a million deliverables, a husband, and a child that won't let you so much as use the bathroom unaccompanied? The older we get, the more we realize that everything we do (or don't do...


#11 Accomplishment or Nah

The Book of Proverbs says a man who finds a wife, finds a good thing but the Book of Bey says build your empire and live your life before you even consider marriage... Join us this week as we discuss the age old debate, is getting married and having a child an accomplishment? Let's just cut to the chase, the whole argument that a woman is not accomplished if she doesn't have a man or child to share in the spoils of her hard work is beyond TIRED and misogynistic. However, being an awesome...


#10 Who Asked You: The Best (and Worst) Advice We Never Asked For

Join us this week as we tackle unsolicited parenting advice. You are a new(ish) mom so naturally everyone in the world knows how to raise your child better than you do, right? Moms, how often do you get unwanted parenting advice? How often does someone who doesn't have children have the audacity to try to advise you on how to raise your child? Unsolicited parenting advice is akin to light skinned Aunt Viv, we know you mean well but...just don't! Keep your trap shut unless the child's life or...


#9 Sealed With a Kiss: Advice You’d Give Your Child

Cue the Aaliyah because I'm writing you a four page letter... Have you ever written a letter to your younger self? Have you ever written a letter to your child or future child? What did it say? Motherhood often awakens our spirits and inspires words we never knew we had. Join us this week as we write a virtual letter to our children and drop all the gems we want to instill in our children. As usual, we go from zero to Brooklyn real quick.


#8 Happy Father’s Day Special

In honor of Father's Day we declare that all dope dads get the big piece of chicken and must listen to this week's episode of #HeyMaPodcast dedicated to all the dope dads in our lives...kidding but not kidding.


#7 Invisible Bully: Henry the Hater

What's beef? Beef is when the Gooch is on the loose in your preschooler's classroom and your child is telling you the kid hit them. Join us this week as we discuss classroom bullies and how to course-correct early in the game...before someone (hint: Shantelle) catches a case.


#6 Motherhood Tax

Patron Saint Beyoncé said we're strong enough to have these babies, then get back to business...she ain't say nothing about getting paid less to do it either! Join us this week as we discuss the ugly truth about the #motherhoodtax women are paying in Corporate America as we try to have both the career and the family. Studies show that #mothers are more likely to be denied merit based raises and be passed up for promotions even while being strong performers. So the next time someone tells you...


#5 What’s Your Birth Story

What do Wu Tang, an incompetent cervix, and Kit Kats have in common? They are all a part of our little's birth stories. Join us this week's episode as we share what to really expect, when expecting.


#4 The Ken-dos and Don’ts of Building Self-Esteem in Your Little
