Biased towards “natural birth”

Informative and the host is good at guiding the story. However, almost every story is about a non-medicated birth or mom in pursuit of. I feel like the podcast could do a better job of including stories from moms who have other ideas for their birth rather than quietly pushing “natural birth” without really sharing its benefits.

More diverse voices

I really like this podcast so far but am disappointed by the lack of voices from women of color. I’ve only listened to about 10 episodes so far, but thought for sure I would have stumbled across one episode that doesn’t feature a white mom. I’ll keep listening but hope efforts are made to diversify the guests so its more representative.

I adore this podcast.

Even though I am not pregnant - I found myself being very interested in birth. About two years ago, I thought to myself “Why not hear more about it?” A few years and all of the available episodes of the Birth Hour later, I am still so thrilled to listen to new episodes, re-broadcasted episodes, etc. Bryn is a phenomenal interviewer who gives space to story teller’s to craft and own their experience. It is wonderful listening to how she navigates the interview! Thank you for such a great podcast.

My favorite podcast!

Like a lot of women who listen to this podcast, I started before even had kids! I am now 27 weeks and feel so enlightened having spent the last 1.5 years educating myself through listening to other experiences. It’s prompted me to do my own research on topics I’ve never heard before and to become informed. Their are so many takeaway tidbits. I appreciate how Brynn asks what the interviewee recommends at the end of each episode. Speaking of Bryn, she is a great podcast host. At first, I thought she was so quiet and sometimes sounding a little “dull”. But guess what, I now compare other interviewers to her because she is such a great listeners and makes interruptions only when necessary. I simply adore her! Thank you for this platform and helping me stay informed as I enter into mine and my baby’s labor and delivery story! Xoxo

Great Preparation

I’m using these stories to help me prepare for everything that can happen in labor – some are terrifying, most are inspiring! At the end of the day, I feel like hearing all of these stories helps me better understand everything that can go right (and wrong) in labor. Knowledge is power.

Great info for a first time mom

I am so grateful for this podcast! I am expecting a baby in a couple months and I feel like I have only heard of the horrors of birth and it made me terrified to be in labor. Though it seems that this podcast is over representing of women who want “natural” births, I think this could be because so many more women are choosing these types of births. It has been nice for me to here so many success stories of women who had unmedicated and “low intervention” deliveries because everyone I have ever knows have had what many would consider “high intervention” births. I thought this was my only option until I started listening to this podcast and started to hear how many options there are for women to have their babies the way they want to. I can’t wait to listen to every episode!

Changed my life

I started listening to this podcast before I became pregnant with my first child. It changed the way I felt about birth and made me want to amerce myself into the world of birth! That was 3 years ago! And now, I’m a proud monthly contributor to the podcast and planning on becoming a birth worker. I recommend this podcast to any expecting mothers and even women who are thinking about becoming pregnant! I love it!

I am hooked!

I began listening to this podcast as I was trying to see if becoming a doula was a good fit for me. I haven’t been pregnant and don’t have a birthing experience to go by, so I thought I’d see if this podcast peaked my interest. I CANNOT STOP LISTENING! I am obsessed with hearing these diverse birth stories. I am so excited to begin my training to become a doula! 💕

Spans all types of people and births

I love this podcast because it gives such a broad-spectrum view of pregnancies and births, mostly in the US but also some perspectives from other countries. At times beautiful, at times difficult, and always educational, this gives me so many tools to consider as I prepare (a few years out) for my own pregnancy and birth. Wonderful beautiful work! I would love to hear more lgbt experiences, but obviously that’s more of an issue of interested parents sharing!

Best resource and preparation for ALL kinds of birth!

I am currently pregnant with my second baby. I listened to this podcast throughout my first pregnancy while planning a minimal intervention hospital birth and this podcast gave me and my husband so much knowledge of how to go about that and how other women advocated for themselves. Well, when my birth plan went completely opposite of what I hoped, this podcast still helped me! There were so many stories of adoptive birth, surrogacy, birth with LGBTQ parents, birth with single mothers, birth with loss( don’t worry, she prepares you before the episode if you want to skip it), an accidental car birth!, home birth, birth center, hospital birth, with interventions, with epidurals, and stories of c-sections both planned and unplanned! And stories of vaginal birth after cesarean, that gave me so much hope for future births. Even though my birth ended in an emergency c-section, I still felt very prepared for what was happening to me.I absolutely adore how each woman tells her story(ies) with so much truth and empowerment. It has helped me plan even more for the birth of my second baby, and encouraged me seek out better care for me and my baby. I recommend this podcast to all new ana expectant moms!!! Thank you, Bryn for creating this space.

So beautiful

This podcast is so beautifully done. I love the way each episode highlights the experience of each guest and does not shame or place judgement on individual decisions or preferences. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to experience so many different births through the eyes of your guests!

It was good until made me feel guilty

So I started to listen to this podcast not long ago. At the beginning all the stories made me almost cry because they all were very emotional and intense as any childbirth should be. The thing is that there were some stories where the complete “no intervention” desires of the mother just became no sense to me. I understand their wishes were important but there is nothing more important Than the health and wellbeing of your baby. Women sometime share their stories in a way that makes you feel bad for wanting to have an epidural or not waiting hours at home before going to the hospital before your water breaks.

Representation

They only represent and share stories of “natural” births. If you want an epidural be prepared to feel shamed by all these women.
