Inspiring and informative

Thank you, thank you for this podcast. As someone who went through postpartum depression/anxiety, it is my hope that one day women won't enter the "fourth trimester" with so little knowledge of what it's really like. We certainly aren't getting an accurate picture from television, movies, or magazines - but this podcast is doing some incredible work to bring all this "ummentionable" stuff into the sunlight and help us feel more comfortable discussing it!

Refreshingly Open

I’m currently two months postpartum and find it so refreshing to hear conversations about the less talked about sides of motherhood and especially physical recovery, which I’ve found out is no walk in the park. Nyssa is doing something truly meaningful in this space. Keep it going! Looking forward to more episodes.
