I began listening to The Birthful Podcast about a year before my first pregnancy. It wasn't the right time for a pregnancy, but I was eagerly anticipating that day and wanted to be prepared for pregnancy and beyond. Through a simple search, I discovered Adriana's podcast and was blown away. The production quality was spectacular, the guests were expert, and Adriana's questions both painted the big picture and explored the practical nuts and bolts of each topic. Before listneing to The Birthful Podcast, I was overwhelmed by birth. How could I learn when I didn't even know the questions I should ask? But Birthful quickly gave me a framework for all things birth, and I discovered the topics I needed to explore on my own as I prepared for birth and motherhood. Birthful became my homebase and my springboard by raising important issues and providing the resources to begin delveing into those issues. I listend to Birthful all the way through my first pregnancy and postpartum.
Fastforward a few years, I am in my second pregnancy, and today I listened to The Birthful Podcast for the first time in a long time. Again, I was blown away. The quality and relevancy of the podcast is still a shining five stars, and the joy and confidence it inspires is priceless. After thirty minutes I was again hooked (not to mention disappointed to think of all the good content I've missed during my break from the podcast!). Finding this podcast too good to simply let slip by, I just had to write a review. I hope you give it a listen and find it as spectacular and irrisitble as I have!
