This podcast has been the most informative and calming presence during my pregnancy! Dr Pat and Brigid are remarkable for what they present for us mama's to be. Thank you for explaining things so clearly and simply. My husband has also loved these podcasts and I think it has helped him to feel more involved and confident with the pregnancy and upcoming birth process.

"What a resource"

- Fashionreviewer00

There are a lot of pregnancy podcasts out there but this one is by far level headed, informative and really provides women with the tools to ask questions. Well done!

"Best Pregnancy Podcast out there!"

- I'mAlright

This is my first pregnancy and this podcast was recommended to me by my obstetrician. I have absolutely loved the content and the way in which it is delivered with the shared knowledge of Dr Pat and Brigid. It has helped me feel more aware and knowledgeable about the birth of my child.

"Wonderful resource for a first-time mum"


So I've been through a few pregnancy podcasts but everything was American. Finally found one. Not only is it straight from the horses mouth (OBGYN) so no personal experiences which may rarley happen. He's delviering facts and that's what we need to know. The norm, not the rare instances on what can go wrong. Also Brigid is awesome. She asks everything a layman would want to ask an OBGYN. LOVE this podcast!

"Best pregnancy podcast ever!"

What listeners are saying

ok, I'm intrigued. tell me more!

We know there's lots of information on the internet about pregnancy. Billions of articles, forums, and Insta accounts. Some are really good - maybe a little dry and technical - and some are biased, not up-to-date, non-expert or simply put - dangerous. 
These are the ones that makes us loose sleep.
Rabbit holes of confusion can cause a loss of confidence.
Women are awesome.
We want you to feel that in your VERY BONES as you grow your baby.
We think there is a better way of helping women feel more confident. 

We want to help a whole new generation of mamas feel confident going into motherhood...

Hi, we are Dr Pat and Mama Brigid. 

...and stop the cycle of overwhelm.
