Evidence-based information

I really appreciate that this podcast discusses peer-reviewed scientific papers. There’s a lot of opinion
-based information on the internet (sometimes good, sometimes bad advice), so it’s really nice to hear something fact-based. This podcast informed me on all kinds of topics throughout my pregnancy, and I’m so grateful!

Exactly what I needed

I have an extremely busy schedule and this podcast has been my favorite pregnancy resource, its allowed me to feel prepared for my new baby and answered so many questions i had. It was easy to listen to this podcast while working and driving.

Very interesting and informative

There is so much information available on this podcast in nice short episodes all with different topics. Im newly pregnant and it has opened my eyes to all these things I should be aware of and information on how to deal. It would be nice if the episodes were available in chronological order of how you’d deal with pregnancy but I still enjoy the information nonetheless
