First time father

I’m glad I’ve discovered this podcast to try and inform myself and give a good insight to the world my partner is stepping into - child birth!!

I’d give 5 stars but the affiliation with Johnson and Johnson is a poorly thought out partnership...

MMMMMMWWWWW ,

No thanks

Some good things about the podcast but wouldn’t recommend as calling a cry it out sleep method ‘responsive/ passive settling’ is harmful and confusing to new parents.

Not a fan

Totally agree with the other comments about the hosts coming across as very condescending, judgmental and unsupportive. I also found the episode about what baby items are necessary a bit strange, given that hosts seemed to have absolutely no idea what items where called or anything about them. I’m not sure why they think it would be beneficial to new parents to hear people talking about something they have no idea about 🤷‍♀️
Australian Birth Stories and Beyond the Bump offer much more informative and supportive views.
