Insightful and cozy

As a member of the LGBT community who is gearing up to start their TTC journey this podcast is the holy grail. It’s so open and honest and inclusive, it’s been great to hear the guests journeys as well as the hosts! The whole vibe of the podcast is just comforting and really makes you feel like you’re not alone! Highly recommend!!
