Beautiful

From a single mom to a 7-year-old little boy, I can’t believe I’m just now hearing this. Seven is a big change, struggling some days.

I couldn’t stop listening

I am a 30 y/o woman who has been putting off having a children for years. There’s always been a reason: improve my health, finishing education, getting financially stable, getting emotionally stable, having just a FEW more free spirited adventures...

Now, I am looking into my future and finally see children...I am so excited...but it also terrifies me.

Following Sophie and Astrid’s life together has made me feel so at ease about choosing to become a mother. Sophie has shown me that it is hard, but the love between mother and child supersedes everything and allows life to fall into place. Sophie is a special, gentle person and Astrid is such a lovely intelligent little girl. They are blessed to have each other.

Thank you for making this podcast Sophie and Astrid!

Captivating

I love her storytelling. The only thing is her voice sounds unnaturally slow and kind of depressed when she is narrating the episodes. Like she is describing some great tragic story. In the real life recordings that she weaves in, she sounds fine! I wonder why the voice change. It would be better if she sounded more natural in the narration.

Great podcast otherwise for anyone considering motherhood. Traditional or not.
