Another Toaster hooked!
Thank you for delivery such great quality content about women’s health and pregnancy. 22 weeks pregnant and I have gone back and listen to most of the episodes since you began. I feel so informed about all aspects of pregnancy and birth and even shared some episodes with my family and friends that I thought related to what they are experiencing I their lives. Once again thanks and I am so happy Jackie helped a toaster navigate her first pregnancy! 😊
Inspiring and informative
Through listening to my own sister’s story to hearing from other women, I have learned so much. Definitely going to continue listening when I start my own pregnancy journey!
Fox is a Rockstar
This podcast is a goldmine of information, especially for those seeking advice on high-risk pregnancies or to simply learn more about prenatal care with an obstetrician. Dr. Fox is a stellar host and does a great job listening (not interrupting his guests, which many other hosts do--lookin at you Dr. Berlin) and asking relevant questions. The biggest hole in this podcast is that Natey is a bit "OB-y" and not always leaning towards/suggesting (or ever saying explicitly that) birth is a normal, physiological event (yes, sometimes birth needs medical intervention I get that, but many times it does not). When talking about procedure or policies at the hospital or during prenatal care, he'll often say things like "evidence" and "studies" but they are not cited and oftentimes they are not up to date, depending on the topic. From what I can tell, he does not often discuss the power of a woman's body and her capability to take ownership over her experience and to birth her baby the way she wants. He might say something like, "you should probably just do what your provider suggests" --which is not terrible, but it's also rooted in a distrust and fear that is oh so prevalent in the birth culture in this country. I dinged a star for this reason. To reiterate, he does an excellent job of discussing perinatal care topics and seems like a lovely human. He could improve his talks by including more stories of normal, uncomplicated birth and how he supports that as an OB. It would be really refreshing and encouraging to hear him talk more about women trusting their bodies and their innate abilities to birth their babies.
