Best interviewers I've heard on a podcast in a long time
Some of the best interviewers I've heard on a podcast. Beautifully produced (like something you'd hear on NPR), balanced, nuanced, insightful, and different to most other podcasts around women's health and wellness. Adding this to my weekly listens.
Women NEED this
As as a doula I’m constantly recommending books and podcasts for expecting and postpartum mamas to listen to. I can’t wait to start recommending this podcast. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s needed.
