I really enjoy this podcast and as someone who is planning on becoming a parent in the next couple of years I find it very helpful! It’s comforting to hear real people’s experiences with birth and parenthood and they provide a lot of useful information and ideas in a friendly and casual way that makes you feel like you’re hanging out with your friends. I can’t wait for more episodes!
Love this so far!
