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!

Open Admirer

Such a great Podcast! I'm a people person and I love listening to these stories. Each of us will have different ups and downs thorughout our lives and I think it's great to be able to listen to a Podcast that is so real! Real, and at the same time, uplifting (despite those heart wrenching moments). After each Podcast I feel a closeness to these women who have shared their stories. The hosts are caring and thoughtful and the music is wonderful. I'm always looking forward to the next story!

Strength in connection

I have listened to every single one of these podcasts and I have yet to hear one that didn't impact me deeply or that I didn't feel a connection to. That is the beauty of this podcast. Even if you haven't experienced the same things as the people being interviewed, you can't help but feel connected to them and marvel at the trials they have gone through. Cocoon highlights the idea that through trial and pain can come beautiful transformation. That is something we all want: for our challenges to have meaning in forming us into something better, stronger, more resilient and more at peace. And by listening and connecting to Lizzie and Valerie and the people they interview I feel like I am able to tap into that strength and I become different, new, and more aware of the experiences of the wider community of women of which I'm a part.
