Hooked!

Have been listening to Brynn’s interviews for years now. I come from a medical background and have had lots of medical interventions for my own births with positive results, and I am fascinated by all the different experiences of the women on this show!! I love how even though Brynn loved her own home birth experiences, she welcomes all birth stories and experiences with a calm, supportive hosting style. Hearing about alllll the different stories has been so helpful for me in understanding others better, understanding how different/unexpected/unpredictable birth can be, feeling acknowledged/heard about my own experiences around birth, and having better insight for the “why” behind why people have different preferences than I do! Thank you so much for all you do, Brynn!!

I am hooked

Thank you Brynn for allowing women to simply speak the truth of how their birth stories unfolded. It is a real amazing resource and I have learned so much and am now a north junkie. It isn’t a missed profession necessarily but maybe when I retire I will be a helper pp doula or nanny.
Highly recommend to any pregnant person or husband of one. Will keep listening, even when this season of life comes to and end my curiosity and interest will most likely stay

Somewhat classist vibes, disappointing

I’m a nurse and planning to have an unmedicated birth at a birth center in a few weeks, and I wanted to listen to the birth stories of other women who had done the same. I listened to three episodes of this podcast so far and have been pretty turned off by the ads for the patreon and $395 online birth prep class during the first 5 minutes, then the wealthy mom guests who have all these support people that most pregnant women won’t be able to afford unless it’s covered by their insurance (multiple doulas, massage therapists, pelvic floor PT, craniosacral therapists to name a few), then the five minute ad for some unnecessary pregnancy or postpartum business at the end. Listen to The Great Birth Rebellion or watch Pregnancy and Postpartum TV’s content on YouTube instead, at least they don’t make you feel as if you’re missing out by not buying tons of supplements and hiring multiple different support personnel, while still providing educational information about unmedicated/natural birth.
