Podcasts can be a great resource before, during and after pregnancy. Listening to a podcast can feel more personal and real- almost like you’re chatting with a group of friends.

Here are BBNN’s top picks for pregnancy podcasts:

Big Fat Positive

This is a weekly podcast that will provide a good laugh as you listen to two moms, Shanna Micko and Laura Birek, who found out they were pregnant at the same time. The first 32 episodes go through their pregnancies and all the appointments and feelings on the road to becoming a mom. If you are pregnant it is very relatable and great to follow along throughout your pregnancy. Episodes 33 and on go into parenthood and the ups and downs that come along with it.
