Personal, honest, and informative.

This podcast was a great listen through the first trimester of my wife's pregnancy. The personal, all-on-the-table (pun) approach to the story of your pregnancy was a major boost to my general feeling of helpless anxiety and cluelessness. Hearing you and Curtis ask the questions I wanted to ask (or more often, hadn't thought of yet) was a gift. My wife is currently on episode four after me bugging her to give a listen. She's enjoying the down to earth 'we don't have all the answers' approach as much as I did. I think it makes us feel a little more normal :). Thanks!

Emotional, relatable, exactly what I needed

This podcast was the most relatable and fun podcast to listen to during my pregnancy. It was great to mix things up from all the facts I was surrounding myself with.
