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.

Skip this one

It takes way too long to get to the point. I’ve listened to so many pregnancy podcasts and I don’t even think I can finish one of your episodes.
