Beautiful, raw, honest

I’ve been introduced to this podcast through the interview with Ashley and Safiyya. Absolutely beautiful. Painful but so full of love. Thank you for sharing.

Love

Really wonderful to listen to other people’s stories, and Gi is a fantastic host! I discovered it in the early days of motherhood and it was so great to listen to during long feeds.

Great episode

Great episode with the Duchess of Cambridge! Thank you for touching on maternal mental health - as a maternal and child health educator I see this topic often overlooked.
