Share Your Birth Story

Women learn from the stories of other women. On the All About Pregnancy & Birth podcast, my goal is to share stories about giving birth in the hospital from a diverse group of women.

Be A Guest Expert

 Do you have evidence-based, well-researched information you'd love to share to help pregnant women? I'm looking for guests who can have interesting, thought provoking, informative conversations. “Outside of the box” topics are welcome.
