Welcome to The Mom Confidential

Mothering is the first job that truly is the epitome of 24/7. Moms need a break, one where they can hear relatable stories, ones that make you realize you’re not alone… and possibly ones that make you say,

“She Did WHAT…?”

Because, let’s face it, sometimes it’s helpful to know you’re not doing things all that wrong!

About the Hosts

With four children ranging from toddler to tweens, Danielle Lucia Schaffer is a boisterous, blonde Italian 'mombshell' hailing from New York City, and tells it like it is. Proud wife to her opposite, a Navy vet and uber-chill dentist from the South, this city girl turned San Diego mom captures the juggle and struggle of mommyhood through the lens of her Canon 5D. With a passion for broadcasting and a knack for home design, she recently flipped her home office into a podcast studio where she and co-host Nikki Katz dish out all the parenting dirt during brand new episodes of The Mom Confidential.

Cultivator of kindness, weekend warrior and red carpet wanderer, Danielle guides her tribe through an action-packed, fun-seeking scavenger hunt they call life, discovering both new and tried-and-true family experiences and trending must haves at every turn. Get ready for a wild ride, because the family we all wish to call friends invites you on their journey as they learn and share all of life’s most valuable lessons.


Nikki Katz (www.nikkikatz.com) has three crazy busy children ages eleven to sixteen. With two teen girls in the house, she's constantly on her toes!

A non-paid chauffeur and travel agent, Nikki somehow finds the time to pursue her writing passion. Her first young adult novel came out in 2017 and her next is due to hit shelves January, 2020. Nikki is also a book developer, editor, social media stalker, reality TV fan, and ex-rocket scientist. She has volunteered in all aspects of education: from PTA president to founding a drama club at her children's elementary school. She truly has seen it all!

Glad this podcast is getting the airtime it deserves! 👏🏽🙌🏽💕✨Such a blast giving my two cents.😜 Can't wait to hear more/new segments.
