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?

KatWren ,

An amazing podcast for anyone considering starting a family!

This podcast is wonderful and super helpful to any non-traditional family considering starting a family. It gave me so much information on the process, and it is so helpful to hear the voices of others who have gone through (and survived!) the process. Highly recommend.

Great Guests, Host Offensive

As a an LGBT family this podcast is super interesting & a fills a void on a needed topic. LOVE the guests they have on but one of the hosts Robin comes off as so judgmental & closed minded in almost every episode at some point. Please take a more open minded approach. Jamie does a much better job of listening to the guests not talking over them & interrupting like Robin does.
