Edgy and Necessary
There's a lot of great info out there on pregnancy and birth, but this podcast speaks to a gap in the information available out there. It explores issues using a reproductive justice framework and am so excited about it!
Raw and Honest
Stumbled upon this and love the content that is discussed.
University Student's review
Upbeat, creative, and has artistic style! This podcast talks about important conversations needed to be had for women of all ages that we sometimes lack the time to make ourselves. Very interesting, informative, and fun!
