Kate Reuter ,

Great resource!!!

What a great resource! I wish I had this when I was going though my pregnancies!!! Thank you so much for bringing such great value to mamas!

aj1227 ,

Amazing!

Love this podcast so much, found it when I was fairly early into my pregnancy and it’s been super helpful with prepping for baby arrival and even after.

I especially enjoy her product reviews at the end of each episode....none of my close friends have had children...so it’s nice to have someone to provide insight to products that they love.
