WHEN

AUTUMN

COMES

The Podcast.

We are two moms who like to talk. We call ourselves the 4am Mom Club because more nights than not, our kids are awake at 4am.  We both have very medical, complicated, rare, beautiful children. We have never met each other in real life. So it is only fitting we host a show together.

When Autumn Comes Podcast Cover Art

When Autumn Comes is a place for medical and special needs mamas, and those who love them, who are facing a life they never expected.   Each week we share hope-filled stories of special needs families, all shapes, colors, sizes and abilities, all in different phases of their special needs or medical journey. Each conversation allows us to share beautiful, heart wrenching stories and experiences from one mama to another.  Together we are navigating through the complexities of the lives we never expected to be living.   

Moms like you, like us!

“I got to listen to your pilot episode and I’m already in love with this podcast. Susan and Diane have great chemistry! I can’t wait for more!” 

We want to hear your story.

When Autumn Comes is built by mamas for mamas. Our stories unite us. And we want to share yours.

Shop with us, soon.

We have some really, really cool things coming. Soon. But we have been a little busy learning how to use our microphones so hang tight… this is coming soon!

Hot off the internet…

our latest episodes!

We are new to the podcast world but we are excited and beyond hopeful that that the When Autumn Comes Podcast will help us connect with other mamas and families around the world who are living similar stories as ours. These are our latest episodes. We hope you enjoy.
