Lovely podcast

I’ve been listening since 2020. I love the content variety. Both hosts are articulate, knowledgeable, curious, and compassionate. I love that Jayde and Sophie clearly support one another and root for all women. Motherhood can be lonely and this podcast often gives me just what I need to get through another week.

Favorite podcast!

BTB is my favorite parenting podcast (maybe my favorite overall). Sophie & Jayde are fun, funny, nonjudgmental hosts who bring in amazing guests with varied experiences and perspectives. They’re relatable & great interviewers who tackle important modern day parenting issues with a perfect balance of seriousness & levity.

Resourceful while being uplifting!!

I live in the US and have been listening since I got pregnant (my baby is now 7 months)! As a nurse myself, I was searching for an informative podcast but one that didn’t leave me terrified to screw something up (or scared that I already had). This podcast is a gem and truly strikes that balance of being informative without leaving feelings of guilt or fear. I love how conversational and honest it is! Also, I have never left a review before but felt it was worth mentioning that you are reaching people around the globe! :)
