I just wanted to send along a message letting you know that I am absolutely loving your podcast! I am currently 24 weeks pregnant with my first child and I eagerly anticipate a new podcast each week. The positivity is exactly what I was looking for and need to hear on this journey. You are providing such a wonderful gift to mums to be. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Keep up the great work you are doing and know that it is not going unappreciated.


I am loving your website & podcasts! I am on maternity leave (due end Aug or should I say early September? Prob more accurate!) & have just discovered you. Have been listening to multiple podcasts each day whilst walking, cooking etc & they are all brilliant & informative. I have been doing active birth & yoga classes in preparation since around 3 months & have a doula but your fearless birth is brilliant concept.


I just wanted to say that I found your podcast a few weeks ago and I have just really enjoyed listening to your shows! I love how comforting and empowering they are and how they help me feel like “YES, I CAN DO THIS!!”. They are very informative and each show has something different and valuable to offer. So thank you for doing this!
