I was really excited when I came to this poscast and saw specific weeks of pregnancy.. 18-20 and speaking of mental health. Beginning ad is weight loss and losing those stubborn pounds? Didn’t want to listen to the episode as I was so turned off.

I have never felt so well informed about a certain topic that I do now about pregnancy after listening to these series. Thank you for being so candid, truthful, scientific and fun to listen to! The host and the guests collectively turned one of scariest experiences into an exciting one to look...Read full review »

I was looking for a UK based podcast this is so informative and I learn so much. Thank you!!
Ros7890 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/29/24
Birthing person is one of the most offensive terms. Only women can give birth. Hearing professionals and experts saying birthing person is so off putting. I wanted to like this podcast, I thought it was interesting hearing about each week, but I can’t support any show that says birthing person.
mamasarah16 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/24
Sometimes when I eat, then I will feel like I’m gonna throw up and I’m 13 weeks pregnant, so is that like normal on the stage?
Lillian Straksys via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/24
Lovely informative and reassuring pod cast. Iv been listening slightly in advanced and re listening to match my dates so i know what i might expect

I’m following along episode by episode during my pregnancy journey and feel so lucky to have found you in my first trimester! I find the content so helpful — and I also just feel so seen every time I turn on the next episode and you talk about what’s going on with you, it is literally spot on...Read full review »

I loved listening to this every week!

Thank you thank you Jessie for doing this really warm, informative, fun podcast. I am so glad I found it pretty early on and really enjoyed listening along each fortnight to the relevant episode!

Loved the podcast
Ellen445 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/08/23
I’m not even trying to get pregnant yet, but I may be soon, so it’s been enlightening listening to “Is It Normal?” and getting an idea of what I should expect. I enjoy the research and information from experts on birthing naturally, home births, birthing centers, what midwives do, etc. It feels...Read full review »

I’ve just started this podcast when I’m 17 weeks but I’m starting from the beginning. It’s so informative and reassuring, I wish I’d known about it when I first got pregnant! Definitely give this a listen if you’re pregnant it gives you so much interesting information and let’s you know what’s...Read full review »

I’m 10 weeks pregnant with my first child, and my family is far away and I am the first of my friends and cousins to have a child. I felt so lost and alone and so incredibly anxious/ that is, until I found this podcast. Two episodes in and I feel so heard and relieved and also, so NOT alone in...Read full review »

This was a great resource for my first trimester, when I was most nervous about my changing body. I continued to listen up until the end of my second trimester. The “experts” that constantly use the phrase “birthing person” are ultra cringe, which ultimately made me stop listening. If my...Read full review »

I have really enjoyed listening to this podcast throughout my pregnancy. It’s been so reassuring to know the things I’ve been feeling are normal and is presented in a really easy to understand and enjoyable format. Thank you!

This helped me so much. Informative and entertaining! Best pregnancy podcast I have found.
stephania melavia via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/16/23
I’ve really, really appreciated listening to this podcast as I prepared for the arrival of my second child who was born this week! It’s been great to follow the weekly episodes through my pregnancy and have a reminder of many things I had forgotten from baby 1. The postnatal episode was...Read full review »

As an American, it’s strange there isn’t something like this done by Americans to explain our hospital and doctor appointments week by week but even hearing the advise from a different country’s perspective is very useful. Love the show! Great tips!!
Cma12345 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/23
Listened to the whole series last summer before I tried to get pregnant and now going back with my partner listening again to each week as I get there. Easy listening and informative. Would recommend to others!
Pinkmonkey607 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/12/23
I just found out I was pregnant a couple of weeks ago. I don’t have much of a community and my first OB appointment isn’t for another two weeks. The questions being asked here are like they came from my own brain. The answers are so intelligent, sometimes funny, kind and even comforting. I rarely...Read full review »

Thank you for this podcast! As a first time expectant dad, it helped me understand what was going on in my wife’s body and what to look out for later on in her pregnancy! Thank you
Sfs1984 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/02/23
An informative podcast with a range of experts. Unfortunately the constant use of ‘pregnancy person’ is very grating and wrong.
Clare0449 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/01/23
Stopped listening pretty early on because there was incorrect info. The tone was also…weird. Skip this and get How to Grow a Baby by Amy J Hammer.
emaheg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/23
I am so grateful I found this podcast- it has filled in so many gaps for me that meant I was much more prepared for hospital appointments and each week of pregnancy. Thank you for making it!
EEllson via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/09/23
I found this podcast while searching for something pregnancy related to listen to while on my daily dog walk. I was about 10 weeks pregnant at the time. Ever since then I have religiously listened to it every two weeks/week nearly the end of pregnancy. I am a massive control freak and pregnancy...Read full review »

Generally good info but the term pregnant person is used so frequently and it’s very off putting
flatoutbaroque via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/22/23
Highly recommend listening to this podcast if you’re a first time mom!
I💚iherb via Apple Podcasts · Taiwan · 06/05/23
I really enjoyed listening to Jessie and her guests break down each week into a digestible segment. Jessie feels like your favorite friend or neighbor — very relatable — while still asking thoughtful questions. Thanks for putting this podcast out there!
MonsoonSM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/23
This podcast is so relaxing to listen to.
peace loves whales and kangas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/23
I can’t listen to podcasts where they refer to a pregnant woman as a “ birthing person.” If you cannot even acknowledge the basic biological fact that only women give birth, then how can I take anything that you say seriously? You clearly don’t know what you’re talking about.
marieffffff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/23
I needed this first born coming up and I have no idea on what to do and this literally just help me
Liljohny24 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/23
I don’t normally enjoy podcasts, but this was so informative and really kept my attention. I loved listening to it to soak up all information as I prepare for pregnancy. Thanks Jessie for making this podcast and bringing in wonderful speakers for the specials!!
MissyM00 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/23
This in theory is very informative. However, shame on Jesse for going along with gender ideology nonsense and referring to women as “birthing person”. Luckily the majority of guests don’t follow this woke ideology. Only women can get pregnant Only women can breastfeed Only women have a cervix...Read full review »

Love these every week and always have to stop myself from listening ahead. Feels like hanging out with a pregnant girlfriend ❤️
WyldChyld510! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/23
Such a great concept and great way to listen as you embark on each week. Really comforting, particularly in the first trimester when you can’t really discuss your symptoms with many others

I am listening the season 1 following on my own week by week process in my pregnancy, I love the tone of the conversation, there’s professional advice but it is simply explained. I am based in the Netherlands and although there is some content much related to the UK, 99% of it is relatable to me...Read full review »

I am not a birthing person, I am a woman. The whole definition of a woman is someone who is able to carry a child to term and birth them. Woman has a uterus and gets periods. Why are we subverting millennia of naming things the way they are to please select few. Biology doesn’t change. As a...Read full review »

I started listening at about 16 weeks as only just discovered. I am now 39+2 and have found it so helpful.

I’m listening as I go along with my first pregnancy! It’s definitely helping me not feel so alone in this period before I can really tell anyone. I’m always looking forward to the next episode :)

I’m currently 40 weeks today, pregnant with my first at age 35.

Overall I enjoy this podcast. It’s casual, lighthearted, and relatable and has been a nice relaxed podcast to listen to in my pregnancy. I wish we would stop using language that erases women. We are pregnant women, not pregnant people. Is it really inclusive if we leave out women? I understand...Read full review »

I listened to this podcast religiously throughout my pregnancy. I loved Jesse’s sense of humor and found it really helpful that she spoke to a range of birth workers as I prepared for doctors visits. It leans holistic / natural and being a British show, some things do not apply stateside (gas and...Read full review »

This is the only pregnancy focused podcast that I’ve really latched onto. It feels like an informative conversation and it’s easy to take in. Please don’t stop — feels like there’s still a million other related subjects & information to be shared. & thank you
jengelin via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/28/22
This podcast is the perfect balance between informative and fun. A very accessible way to find out everything you need to know about pregnancy and birth, and it made a HUGE difference to how my birth went as I understood the doctors and could share my wishes!
