So Thankful

This podcast has been so helpful and informational. I am so thankful for your insight into the world of birth and pregnancy. I wish more doctors and nurses were as up to date on this information as you! This year my husband and I are trying to conceive, and I already signed up for your birth plan (wish) course! I am sure you have a full plate as a wife, mom, doctor and now your podcast! But thank you for this! I love it so much!

I love this woman!

If this woman came to deliver my baby I’d be so happy lol Her voice is so calm and soothing and the advice she gives is so even keeled. I love the unbiased information that is holistic in nature but not fear mongering and still appreciates the medical side of things too.

Evidence based info for hospital births!

I have so appreciated listening to Dr Rankins’ podcast during my third pregnancy. I’m a “birth junkie” of sorts, I love learning about all aspects of pregnancy and birth, and this podcast has been a great addition to my learning! I really appreciate how Dr. Rankins gives evidence based materials and helps women understand aspects of pregnancy and birth in medical settings, as that is where most women will end up giving birth in the US. Even after learning much in my preparation for my first two unmedicated hospital births, I have learned much on the podcast for aspects of pregnancy not often covered elsewhere (for example I just listed to the episode on GBS in preparation for my own GBS culture this week). Thank you, Dr. Rankins!

Fantastic preparation for first time parents

I stumbled across this podcast nearly at the beginning of it. My husband and I will be first time parents and the content of this podcast is not only informative, but it also provides us a way to speak about situations and our feelings that we may face. Being first time parents brings the additional stress of recognizing we aren’t even sure what questions to ask and after listening to this show we feel much better prepared to face the pregnancy with both excitement and preparedness. Also Dr. Calloway Rankins explains topics in a way that feels full of knowledge and expertise, but she manages to make it feel like she’s one of your girlfriends sitting at a table just sharing her wisdom. I can not recommend this podcast highly enough!

I finally found it

I wanted to take advantage of my commuting time each day with a podcast that will prepare me for birth and baby, as well as helpful tips through pregnancy. Until I came across this, I found most podcasts in this subject area to be way too specific on obscure topics or just too much fluff. This one is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Dr. Rankins breaks it all down so well and I find all the episodes relevant to what I want to learn about.

So Helpful!

Dr. Calloway Rankins is full of unbiased information. I’ve found so many of her episodes helpful during this pregnancy. She also offers free downloadable resources on her website! Side-note: I listen to this podcast in the car and her intro song always makes me smile and dance a little.

25wks Pregnant First Time Mom and Obsessed!

I am so thank to Dr. Rankins for this informative podcast! I am a 27 year old first time mom and am 25 weeks pregnant. I discovered this podcast last week and am just OBSESSED! Dr. Rankins presents so much information on all topics related to pregnancy, labor, and delivery in such a clear and concise way and has such a soothing manner of speaking. I just can’t get enough! I really enjoy her diverse variety of guests she features on the show, from fellow doctors to regular woman and their incredible birth stories. 10/10 I recommend this podcast to anyone interested in being more informed on all aspects of pregnancy and birth.

Awesome Podcast

Dr. Nicole Rankins, MD., brings you the knowledge and resources you’ll need to make an informed decision about the birth you want and the resources you’ll need to heal after birth. Including breastfeeding, knowledge on maternity leave process, midwives, OBGYN, rare infant conditions, in-home care., etc. She has an open minded process to move the OBGYN world forward. I’m hoping this podcast continues the conversation for Mother’s to heal better during the 4th trimester postpartum. I’m also hopeful for change in the USA where we have limited resources for postpartum care. Also, her voice is so relaxing as well. Keep up the great work!

Helpful, easy to listen to

I have found the episodes I have listened to informative, and without unnecessary chit-chat or filler. She is a good speaker as well, which makes the information easy to follow. I’ve also thought that all of the guests on the podcast had a lot to add as well. I’m glad I found this podcast and I would recommend it to anyone trying who is pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant.

A Voice of Encouragement

Dr. Rankins provides a unique pregnancy & birth podcast that will keep mamas feeling uplifted and supported. She does an excellent job keeping bias out of this podcast, so you can make your own opinions or decisions, based on the information provided. This podcast is not just for mamas.... I am a devoted listener and don’t anticipate pregnancy anytime soon. I just love health education and feel better prepared for when my time comes. Thank you, Dr. Rankins!!

I love this podcast!

I discovered Dr. Rankins’ podcast when she was a guest on the Evidence Based Birth podcast and have been hooked since. The topics are clear and super informative and the information is easy to digest. It is refreshing to hear an OB speak about lots of topics that are super important to pregnant women from a place of compassion, respect and patience. This is a fantastic resource for anyone looking to understand more about the pregnancy and birthing process!
