In this day and age when even the best intentioned mom or dad-to-be may not have time to read up on various topics related to pregnancy, birthing and preparing for a baby in advance, sometimes a podcast may be the solution. Pea in the podcast covers a range of topics and each episode features an expert, interviews with pregnant women and their partners; new moms or dads; and a good bit of informative statistics, lists and other research information about the topic. Most of it is pretty general stuff and nothing very groundbreaking, and it seems best suited for first time moms. Even so, the topics are still pretty comprehensive enough so that even second or third timer who may need a refresher could probably benefit.
I think who’d best benefit probably is the dads who many times, unfortunately, are just not THAT interested in consuming every pregnancy book as the moms are…so voila! Sentence them to listening to podcasts like The Pea in the Podcast! Problem solved! ha!
You can download each podcast and listen in the car while running errands or traveling on a road trip, or during the commute on the train or bus into work. It’s a novel idea! The brains and experts behind it are impressive as well, though I would have loved for the website to feature some of the moms featured in some episodes. Because “been there done that” moms are the true experts in many cases and feature them from diverse backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities as well to represent the diversity that is America. Anyway, I enjoyed listening to a few of the podcasts and found them informative and thoughtful. Reading is so overrated anyway eh? ha!
