Cocoon is not a pregnancy podcast. Not really. It’s not about babies. It's about you. It's about what you didn’t expect when you were expecting. It's about the messy complexities of growing a family, from the unforeseen challenges to the surprising joys. It's about how you, and your life, has changed through the process. It's about what you have become.

Customer Reviews

Parent Window

I’m not a parent, but the stories of Cocoon appeal to me. The focus is less on baby mechanics and more on the foray into parenthood itself—a kind of hero’s journey, which I enjoy. It’s also very emotional, which, duh: pregnancy, birth, and child-rearing are intensely intimate experiences, ones that this podcast makes me feel close to for the first time. The hosts and guests are thoughtful, energetic, and genuine. A lovely podcast!

Great podcast. Honest yet very sensible and respectful!

So many people have wonderful, yet terrifying experiences to share. Thanks Valerie and Lizzie for providing the space to share and hear these stories! I love how open, yet sensible you approach each one of the stories told. This is really a unique and valuable podcast!

Great podcast!

I love this podcast! The stories shared are heartwarming, uplifting, interesting, funny, sad, and heartbreaking. As a mother, I can definitely relate! I can't wait to hear each new episode.
