My holy grail pregnancy guide!

I’m a young first time mom, navigating my pregnancy journey. I lost my mom to breast cancer 2 months before finding out I was pregnant and I honestly look up to all the ladies on the show for questions I would have asked my mom. I love the variety of panelists and experts, as well as the great tips and advice! I recommend all of New Mommy Media’s podcasts!

Some good information

I do like some of the information but on many episodes they talk about basically how bad c-sections are. Even referring to the time before c-sections were performed, but what’s not mentioned is infant death during birth was MUCH higher as well. I don’t like the shame they try to put on women who had c-sections and claims that doctors aren’t educated on new studies about it.
