What To Expect

ParentingHealth & FitnessKids & Family

When Heidi Murkoff wrote the book ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’, she was pregnant with her daughter Emma. Her mission was simple: to help parents know what to expect, every step of the way. That mission has grown to include the world's bestselling pregnancy and parenting series and most popular pregnancy and parenting app. Now, Emma is a mom too—and they’re teaming up on the ‘What To Expect’ podcast to help you navigate your entire journey, from conception, to pregnancy, to the first years of parenting. Heidi and Emma break down your biggest questions, interview famous moms, and cover the issues you need to know about—from healthcare to childcare to maternal leave. Nothing is TMI, and nothing is off-limits! For more from Heidi and Emma, find them at @HeidiMurkoff, @EmmaBingWTE and @WhatToExpect.

  • Alcohol and Beer ads for a pregnancy podcast?

  • Conventional Western Info. S ripped. Too many ads.

    Pros: because this is so scripted, the host doesn’t spend much or any time greeting her guests or beating her on the bush, so you do get pretty straightforward information. A con to this: not a very heart warming or entertaining podcast. Other cons: the information on this podcast is very much in line with conventional western OB/GYN practice. No where on this podcast will you be encouraged to consider a midwife (everything is, “talk to your doctor”) a doula, have a non-medicated pregnancy, or h... more

  • Weight Loss Ads

    I started this podcast at 38 weeks looking for another podcast on labor and delivery, relationship, and postpartum content. I decided to ditch this one and move to something else; the ads are so bad. As soon as I heard the weight loss ad, “$9 a month you’re guaranteed to lose weight within the first 30 days”, I turned it off.

  • Great information about motherhood but it can get political sometimes!

    I have learn so much with the what to expect app and this show, as this is my first pregnancy. However, sometimes the hots can get a bit political. I wish they were a bit more neutral on their policial views. Besides that, I think they provide valuable information that is helpful.
