Two lesbians chatting about making babies and non-traditional families. Jaimie and Robin humorously go in-depth with weekly guests about their hopes, fears, and setbacks. The mission is to normalize, elevate and celebrate, while confirming that we're just like other parents, trying not to yell at our kids when they still haven't put their shoes on and we're 25 minutes late for school. The end result is a compelling podcast that amusingly explores the age-old question: what's it like to live as an LGBTQ family in a world built for the straights?

Real life - real people - unconditional love

My wife and I started talking about expanding our family. We were in search of podcasts that would help us to prepare. We were more than pleasantly surprised to find this podcast which is owned operated by two lesbian women who both have families of their own. We would sit and listen every day soaking up all the information offered by these two women. The guests they have on their show have families from all sides. They speak to the experts who offer valuable information. No matter where you are coming from, you can relate and find resources that might help you in your journey. They welcome everyone and share our common goal, to help the LGBTQI community to build their families.

Thank you so much for being so open and giving us a place where we can all come together and help each other. I highly recommend this podcast. Be sure to grab a copy of their book too. Much love to you both!

Fun, heartfelt, and important conversations abound!

I really love If These Ovaries Could Talk! I’ve recommended it to a bunch of friends who are a various stages of trying to get pregnant/thinking about starting their family/etc. Robin and Jamie are wonderful and always striving to learn more, tell more diverse stories, and cover aspects of LGBTQ family-building that aren’t talked about much or at all. As the hosts are always saying - it is so important to tell our stories and this podcast is working hard and having fun in order to do just that! Thank you!
