Pregnant people get bombarded with all sorts of advice on maternity: a lot of it unsolicited, and often outdated or just plain incorrect. In the Birthful Podcast, Adriana Lozada talks with pregnancy, birth and postpartum experts, as well as new parents to distill that information down to the relevant stuff. Think of us as your own specialized team of birth pros!
We know that being pregnant can be tough. That being a mom can be hard. That having a baby can be exhausting. And we hope to make it easier by giving you tried and tested tips and tools that you can use. From “laid-back” breastfeeding to safer bed-sharing, circumcision to VBACs, we’ll give you well-researched, evidence-based information so YOU can make the choices that best fit your family.
