Evidence-based information

I really appreciate that this podcast discusses peer-reviewed scientific papers. There’s a lot of opinion
-based information on the internet (sometimes good, sometimes bad advice), so it’s really nice to hear something fact-based. This podcast informed me on all kinds of topics throughout my pregnancy, and I’m so grateful!

Anti-vaxx pseudo science

I can’t take any podcast seriously that puts anti-vaccine pseudoscience on the same playing field as actual peer-reviewed studies and evidence based research.
