    Introducing Motherhood Sessions, a podcast from our friends at Gimlet. Motherhood Sessions features emotionally honest conversations about being a mom. In this episode, Dr. Alexandra Sacks sits down with a couple that hasn’t had sex in more than two years. On the surface, it seems like the birth of their son was the main cause of their loss of intimacy. But as Dr. Sacks digs deeper, it turns out that the couples’ sexual issues pre-date their child.

Sunshine on my shoulders... ,

Coronavirus blues, begone!

Thank GOODNESS the new season has started. I didn’t realize how much I missed this show until I heard it again. It’s made me feel hope (again). It’s helped me forget the pandemic and remind me that there is fun and whimsy and romance and our shared humanity. Thank you, Meredith! :)

I love this podcast!

When I’m feeling over whelmed, anxious or upset, I listen to this podcast and it helps me calm myself. Meredith’s voice is so soothing. She listens and gives advice without forcing her opinion onto others. She isn’t afraid to change her mind when she gets new information. It’s refreshing.
