The Birthful Podcast | Talking with Pregnancy, Birth, Breastfeeding, Postpartum & Parenting Pros to Inform Your Intuition

Women get bombarded with all sorts of advice on maternity: a lot of it unsolicited, and often outdated or just plain incorrect. That's why Adriana Lozada talks with pregnancy, birth and postpartum experts: 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. Subscribe to join us every week! Adriana Lozada is a mom, author, speaker, birth doula, postpartum educator, and healthy-sleep consultant. Find more at Birthful.com. Please note: Although I have years of experience, I'm not a doctor, nor am I familiar with your particular circumstances, and neither are my guests. Please double check all the info you hear here with your care provider. This show is not meant to be taken as medical advice. Thanks.
