Great podcast to listen to!
This has been a great podcast to listen to while pregnant. I had a few complications during my pregnancy and I was very thankful for some of the topics covered on this podcast. They way they were explained and discussed were very helpful and easy to understand.
My favorite health & pregnancy podcast so far
I’m almost mad how much I enjoy this podcast because I can’t seem to find another one like it and I just really enjoy the topics discussed. Dr. Fox has great guests and the conversation/format is straightforward without any gimmicks. Very much the evidence-based podcast that I was looking for while trying to conceive, going through a miscarriage and getting back at it again. It has been so helpful - I just wish I could find something similar because I’m all caught up and waiting between episodes kills me.
I really appreciate how this podcast explains some popular misconceptions and thoroughly explains alternatives along with honest feedback about side effects, success rates while giving options, ownership and support to the patient.
