Love this valuable and insightful podcast!

Preparing for conception and motherhood is a whole new world to me and this podcast is making it feel like less uncharted territory. Especially as someone with Hashimoto’s, I feel like health-wise I have a lot to untangle. Drs. Alejandra and Christine are so knowledgeable and have great guests - I recommend this to all my new mom friends!
