I used to really enjoy this podcast, but the latest edition (Royal Babies) was misinformed and full of judgemental comments. It's one thing to have an opinion, but to make up reasons about why someone would use a surrogate when their medical history has been well documented on a television show was wrong and made me feel like the hosts weren't particularly well-versed on the topic at hand. I think the hosts' strongest suit is talking about personal experiences, so maybe stick to that for the future. Also, some consistency would be appreciated.

Love you girls!

Half felt the number of sessions offered weren't enough
