More Big News and New Ways to Join our Conversation

We keep rolling out big announcements and this week, we’re excited to announce:

Join the conversation! Support Common Sense Pregnancy, Parenting & Politics on Patreon.

Join the conversation! Support Common Sense Pregnancy, Parenting & Politics on Patreon.


 Patreon is a crowdfunding membership site that allows sponsors to support creative artists.  By becoming a Common Sense Pregnancy, Parenting & Politics sponsor, you’ll help us grow our podcast and receive exclusive insider information and content like special podcast episodes, merchandise giveaways, video Q&A’s and sneak peeks inside my studio. 


 That last part – the sneak peak – is going to require a bit of effort on my part.  My recording studio is one of my favorite spots on earth but generally when I’m interviewing a guest, I wear jeans and a t-shirt, sweater, glasses and no makeup and my hair is clipped in a bun. I am not a naturally camera-ready woman and my selfie game is poor. So…these are the lengths I’ll go to for my sponsors – I’ll put on a nicer than average top, brush my hair and put on a little lipstick.  I’ll even tidy up the studio.  How’s that?  Pretty good?  Thanks! 

 Why have we launched a Patreon page when we already have advertisers?  Because podcasting is expensive, our sound quality could stand some improvement and we want to expand our reach. 

  • We want more mothers and parents to navigate pregnancy without so darn much fear. 

  • We want more women to understand how to be a healthy pregnant person and get the best prenatal care possible. 

  • We want to raise the level of respect and genuine support women experience in their birth experiences and as parents. 

  • We want more families to have the information, support, community and resources they need to thrive as parents and raise our children to be excellent world citizens. 

 That’s ultimately what our podcast is about and your sponsorship makes all that possible. In fact, every time you buy a copy of Common Sense Pregnancy or Mom’s Side of the Story or a Cup of Common Sense, you’re helping us keep the conversation going at Common Sense Pregnancy, Parenting & Politics.  Your sponsorship at Patreon makes it even easier to add your voice to the conversation on a monthly basis.  Thanks everybody for being in on this with us!
