Ep. 190- Delivery Story: Heather HAD A BABY!

We interrupt your scheduled Milk Minute episodes to bring you a special birthday announcement! Our little podcast baby arrived just after 39 weeks and we made a special little recording just for you.

If this is your first time listening, here’s a recap: Nine months ago Heather surprised Maureen by announcing her pregnancy on the Milk Minute and asking Maureen to be her (homebirth) midwife. From this Beyond the Boob was born; a spin off from the Milk Minute where we took time to just focus on the pregnancy.

Since then its been a wild ride of TMI, prenatal education, and so much more. Today we bring you a very anticipated episode where we document the last prenatal and birth of the baby! While this isn’t the full birth story, we kept a mic set up for updates during labor and kept a little captain’s log just for you. Enjoy some birth deets and raw emotions and get excited for the full story next week!!

If you want to hear the birth story and every other week of Beyond the Boob there’s still time to subscribe on Apple Podcasts or on our Patreon at
