About Mamamia

Mamamia is Australia’s #1 women’s media company, producing podcasts, videos, written articles, social and branded content about everything that matters to women. Mamamia reaches millions of women more authentically and influentially than any other women’s brand.

We have the #1 women’s podcast network in the world, according to itunes, with 50 million downloads (as of July 2018) across 18 shows with 24 female hosts.

Mamamia began as a blog in 2007 and today employs 80 women (and a tiny handful of blokes) in offices across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Then, now and always, Mamamia has had one core purpose…..


This core purpose is the DNA of everything we do at Mamamia. It’s what separates us from our competitors and it drives every business and editorial decision we make.

And this is how we do it:

We also support women in business with Lady Startup, a movement that grew organically from our desire to use our platform to promote businesses started and run by women. Lady Startup promotes women’s businesses via social media and runs courses for women who want to work for themselves but don’t know where to start.
