Very interesting and informative!

As a veteran mom of 11 children, I wish I knew a lot of different options I could have tried or done having my babies. I've always loved hearing other woman's birth stories! Thank you for sharing.

Mixed Bag

Some nice stories but also some poor information shared if you don’t know a lot about normal physiological birth. The host is sweet but doesn’t have a lot of experience or extensive knowledge about birth which would be fine except that she isn’t able to offset or add to some of the things the mothers share that is either poor information they received from the medical system or just not clearly communicated for the listener. I wouldn’t recommend for a newer mother wanting to learn about options or for a good understanding of physiological birth. Ex: Recent episode featured a normal cord around the neck as an emergency and a misunderstanding of normal transitioning to air breathing which just perpetuates falsehoods, fear mongering, and unnecessary panic about birth.

Inspiring and thought provoking

I am thoroughly enjoying listening to this podcast. Every birth journey is so unique and listening to all of the different experiences women have had gives inspiration and provokes thought on how you would like to shape your experiences with your own birth journeys. It is empowering to know you have a voice and choices in how you would like to give birth. I am inspired to advocate for myself in new ways in future birth experiences.
