    S2 Ep 1 - "Expectations"

    S2 Ep 1 - "Expectations"

    I'm in an age where people are talking about kids constantly. ⁠
    "We're thinking of having kids!" ⁠
    "Can this new place house kids?"⁠
    "Can you come see the new baby?"⁠
    With all this kid talking, there comes the expectations of parenthood. Especially the expectations of what that baby is going to be. This is where gendering first begins. ⁠
    We will explore the ways parents' anxiety, stress, and hope can affect the raising of a new unborn child. ⁠
