Fun, educating and empowering

I love this podcast! Jeanne does a great job educating the audience of the options they have throughout childbirth. Skip the duplicate podcasts and keep creating more new ones! Her book was really great too!!

She’s so hard to listen to

I’ve tried a handful of episodes and am officially done trying. The host is so hard to listen to! You can tell in her interviews that the interviewee feels uncomfortable and as a listener, I can only handle so many filler words like: “um, uh, well, so....” As a podcast host I feel as though these are things that shouldn’t be an issue.

Please no politics

Even though I am in-line with you party-wise, I did not come to a pregnancy podcast to hear about your political opinions! I get plenty of politics elsewhere and just seriously don’t want to hear it. I had several episodes downloaded and ended up deleting them all because I dreaded having to skip to the actual content.
