Pregnancy is one of life’s happiest moments, but it can also be a very lonely time. Each year more than 4 million U.S. women give birth, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be lucky enough to have a good friend or sister who is pregnant at the same time alongside you. (These twin sisters who delivered within minutes of each other at a New Jersey hospital are one notable exception.)
There will be plenty of friends (Facebook and otherwise) to share your good news with, but perhaps fewer people who can really relate to your pregnancy fears and—let’s face it—even fewer who want to hear you complain about your PITA pregnancy symptoms. If you’re pregnant for the first time, you may feel even more acutely like nobody else quite understands what you’re going through.
The moms here at Parents remember that feeling well. So we created our new podcast, Pregnancy Confidential, to hold your hand every step of the way. You can download any of the 32 week-by-week episodes right now. So if you’re 12 weeks pregnant, you can start at week 12 and listen once a week, or listen to upcoming weeks in advance to get a taste of what the future holds. Sign up for our pregnancy newsletter and you’ll get a weekly reminder to tune in to your next episode. We’ve had more than a dozen babies between us, so we tried to anticipate what you’ll be wondering, marveling at (and, yes, worrying about) at every step on the road to delivery. And to be completely honest, we have a pretty good idea thanks to the research we do at Parents and the insights we glean from the millions of women who visit our family of web sites, including fitpregnancy.com, every month.

I loved hosting the podcast, and hearing how different everyone’s pregnancy experience, and especially their birth story, was. It was both fun and, well, a little TMI to talk about our swollen ankles, financial fears, relationship challenges, birth plans and even our hemorrhoids, c-sections and more, with one another. But we did it so that our listeners could find a reassuring voice in their earbuds at any time of the day or night. If you’re pregnant, I hope you’ll tune in—it might be 20 of the most comforting minutes you’ll spend all week.
