Life’s unmentioned, mentioned. Welcome to the Thoughts & Found Podcast where we discuss life’s expectations versus life’s realities, and realize that what we all live often lies somewhere in between.

We’re the podcast about life’s less talked about moments, from miscarriage to admitting defeat and taking calculated risks in life, work, and relationships; we have the conversations others don’t have.

No topic is off-limits and we hit them hard, with humour and candour. Hope to have you join us, at life’s ‘in between’.

If you have questions or suggestions for topics or guests, let us know!

    #4: Pregnancy Series: Last Days of Pregnancy, First Days of Parenthood, and Four Funny Stories

    After the arrival of our baby girl, we're (finally!) back to give an update on the final weeks of pregnancy and the initial days of parenthood, with some funny stories along the way, that hopefully some of you can relate to!

    We kept this episode intentionally light; we're just back with a fairly short, conversational recap of the past several months, and why the heck we haven't recorded a new podcast. We hope you'll enjoy pouring a cup of your favourite drink and joining us for some laughs.

    Thanks for listening, subscribing, and rejoining us. Lots more to come!

    #3: Pregnancy Series: 10 Things That Have Surprised Us About Pregnancy (So Far!)

    #3: Pregnancy Series: 10 Things That Have Surprised Us About Pregnancy (So Far!)

    One thing we've learned on this journey to becoming parents is that every pregnancy is mind-blowingly different! With that in mind, in this episode, we talk about 10 things that have surprised us about Danielle's pregnancy (so far). The list includes things we either hadn't heard from other women or doctors, things we know other pregnant women and expectant couples must have experienced, but that 'just don't get talked about' - at least publicly - and things that we've encountered that are the complete opposite from what other people have said pregnancy would be like! In true Thoughts & Found form, we hit this one hard and put it all out there - the good, the bad, the personal, and the potentially TMI! Hope you enjoy - it's a bit of a fun one!

    Thanks for listening!

    #2: Pregnancy Series: Navigating "the Tell"

    #2: Pregnancy Series: Navigating "the Tell"

    Expecting? Congratulations! Not sure when, or how to tell people, or who to tell first? We review the ups and downs of our own experiences of ''navigating the tell" with two pregnancies that ended in miscarriage, and a current third pregnancy. We also run through the pros and cons of telling early, factors that can accelerate the timing of when you tell (!), and the importance of going with your gut and telling in your own way.

    If you're comfortable sharing your own experiences with us and with our listeners, leave a message on Anchor or find us on social media through the links on our blog below. Thanks for listening!

    #1: Pregnancy Series: “Baby Gear”

    #1: Pregnancy Series: “Baby Gear”

    Have you ever sat down to create a list of all the "gear" you "need" for baby's arrival?  Wish it was all listed in one place instead of scattered across the internet? Wish people were honest about what they really needed vs. what they were led to believe they needed by big box stores, registry sales people and websites, (and, dare we say it, even friends and family)? Trying to stick to a budget for baby's arrival? You can be led to spend a fortune without even trying.

    In this first official episode of our podcast, we review all the gear we've looked at, reviewed, compared, considered, and carefully evaluated - and then what we eventually bought in order to prepare for the arrival of our first baby. We divided the 'stuff' into categories, which you can find listed below. And it's not as much as we thought! (We'll be back to update the list once baby arrives and we can really put our money where our mouth is in terms of what should have made the list and what didn't need to be included). 

    Enjoy! Leave us a message through the Anchor app or find us online through our blog below.

Thoughts and Found

Hey guys. Any new casts coming?

Just checking again. After the last one you said you’d be back soon with more. Will you be continuing the series? It’s a tough time, can you speak to that?

I feel it’s over. Not much going on here anymore.
