Great Information

Love the podcast and find it very informative as someone supporting a family member having a home birth. So many questions answered and I also find Charlie and Sara to be very funny. I love learning and laughing all in one episode!

Thank you

I’m so happy I found this podcast. I am a nurse transitioning to working as a birth assistant with a home birth midwife so I really appreciate all the information and details.

Helping settle uneasy hearts with grace and humor

Finding this podcast has been such a blessing! With their powerful knowledge and calm approach with the “controversy” idea of Homebirth has made explaining my choice to have my babies at home to my family so helpful. My husband is even a fan and has listened to specific podcasts to answer his own questions and steady his own doubts about homebirth! If Ca wasn’t so far away, these two women would be my absolute first choice for midwives! However, I’m so thankful they have helped me set my standards for what I’m looking for when it come to birthing at home. I can’t thank you ladies enough.
