Momma Friends

I’ve been listening to this podcast for YEARS and (especially during these quarantine times) Elana and Steph feel like close momma friends that you can call up and chat about anything with. This podcast has been a resource through pregnancy loss and postpartum and toddlerhood. I’m so happy it’s continuing on in its new iteration because I’m about to have my second baby and losing it now would be like losing a friend. Hit subscribe, you won’t be disappointed!
