Lauren / Reno , Nevada ,

Mom of three and absolutely love this podcast

After finishing happy homebirth podcast I was suspicious in my searches that I would find something that was as good as that series . But these ladies just fill my whole heart and I’m laughing and I get butterflies listening to these amazing stories . I have a lot of love for women and children health and often wonder if this is something I could make a career out of . I am 25 years old and 2 years into nursing school pre reqs . So I have a ways to go but this is encouraging and I just know that I can find happiness in a good job . Keep up the podcasts ladies ! I am 34 weeks and addicted . This is our second homebirth and I am just so in love that I get this opportunity to birth safely at home . The girls who get it , get it and the girls who don’t they just don’t . The cascade of interventions are scary and you are doing gods work out here . I’m not even religious it’s just the United States has Terrible pregnancy and delivery care . The hospital is not the safest place you can go anymore and it just really makes my skin crawl that healthy women and babies are facing unessecary interventions that were never needed

SanDiegoChristie ,

So good!

I am planning a birth center physiological birth after a super traumatic hospital c section birth. This podcast has been SO helpful! The gals are relatable- it’s like listening to your friends talk. I’ve learned a ton from them. I especially loved the informed consent episode. Highly recommend!!

StudentMW ,

Thank You!

I’m a student midwife and find this podcast so informative. I also appreciate the gender inclusive/affirming language and don’t understand the people that are so offended by inclusive language. Maybe this just isn’t the podcast for them but it it’s definitely for me, thanks!
