    Ep 51 - BONUS EP! Pregnancy catch up

    Ep 51 - BONUS EP! Pregnancy catch up

    We’re back! Couldn’t help ourselves.

    We’ve spent the entire season talking about Brig’s pregnancy and it felt wrong to not have one final catch up before the precious little bundle arrives.

    So today we hear all about where Brig is up to –

    - Birth plans

    - All about home birth

    - Where the baby is positioned

    - All of the “boy or girl” speculation!

    - How Brig plans to manage balancing her businesses and having a newborn

    - And most importantly – NAME HINTS!

    We also do a quick catch up on where Mel is at but her response is about as messy as her life right now. Definitely going to do a deep dive episode/mini series next year on thyroid health and the whole new journey Mel is now on.

    Pretty sure this is actually us for the year now – enjoy the holiday season!! p.s. make sure you're following us on Instagram so you can see when Brig announces the birth of her little bundle!! Eeeeeee BOY OR GIRL???!!!!!!

    Ep 49 - How to treat hirsutism

    Ep 49 - How to treat hirsutism

    This has been a long standing and repeatedly requested episode that we have quite frankly, been hesitant to do. We really wanted to do it right and given neither of us have much experience with this symptom - we wanted to make sure we'd really looked into things.

    But we are so happy the episode is finally here!

    In it we cover:

    - What hirsutism is and the various causes of it

    - How to treat hirsutism from the inside out

    - How to reduce hirsutism topically

    It's a big one!

Faith GM ,

Soooo glad y’all are back!

I was diagnosed with PCOS about three months ago and was looking to dive deeper. This podcast is an answered prayer. I have been listening to all the old episodes every time I jump in the car and I am ecstatic that y’all are back! Thank you so much for all you do! You give me hope!

The best PCOS support system

I have been listening to the PCOS Girls for a few months since I got my (long awaited) diagnosis and let me tell you, it is so comforting to hear about other women having been through the same frustrating issues. It feels like I’m alone in this sometimes and since listening I feel like I have people on my side giving me sisterly advice. I have adopted so many of the things that they have talked about to help them heal their symptoms and track everything through my PCOS journal, which is incredible. Thank you so much Mel and Brigitte for giving me an outlet that makes me feel heard, not alone, and supported with sound advice from women going through the same thing.
