Eye Opening & Empowering

I delivered at 42 weeks and had a birth better than I could have hoped for—thanks to this podcast I understood that 42 weeks didn’t have to be a bad thing and that asking for an epidural at 9cm was not defeat. I learned so much from listening to these guests starting at 31 weeks and 15 weeks postpartum I am still listening. Thank you, Adriana!

Biased and misinformed

I was looking for a balanced and evidence based podcast to listen to on my commute while preparing for birth of my second child but have been overall disappointed by the quality and content. As a practicing pediatrician I have been particularly astounded by their opinion of physicians (that they call “providers”). In the most recent episode I listened to they incorrectly state that “some OBs have never even seen a normal vaginal delivery”(???!!!!????)—there aren’t (or shouldn’t be) any medical students who have not witnessed and assisted with many vaginal deliveries. I unfortunately wouldn’t recommend this podcast to anyone seeking well informed guidance to having a healthy and safe delivery.

If you do nothing else for your pregnancy, listen to this podcast!

I can not recommend this podcast enough! The wide variety of guests and topics present parents and the birth community with evidence-based information on so many things related to birth. The birth stories are empowering and educational. I love the mix of stories and education. As a nurse, lactation counselor, and mama, this is what I recommend to anyone asking for any type of pregnancy advice. It’s all about finding what path is best for you and making informed decisions and that is what Adriana presents!
