The Pregnancy Nurse Podcast is The Pulling Curls Podcast: Pregnancy & Parenting Untangled. I have two brands and I started it under my original brand, but about 50% of the podcasts are pregnancy-focused, and the other half I think you will really enjoy as we dive deep into things to make busy mom’s lives easier.
So, these are our pregnancy episodes.
Please keep in mind that this isn’t ALL the episodes of the Pulling Curls Podcast — you can see ALL the episodes (including home, parenting and travel) here or your favorite podcast player. AND, I love it when people leave a podcast review.
But in case we haven’t met before:
Before we start, I’m Hilary — The Pregnancy Nurse 👩⚕️. I have been a nurse since 1997 and I have 20 years of OB nursing experience, I am also the curly head behind Pulling Curls and The Online Prenatal Class for Couples. 🩺 With all of my experience, I’m happy to be able to share it with you guys in my podcast.
