We hope you enjoy t…

This week, a new commercial by Frida Mom hit the airwaves during the Golden Globes. This ad is being applauded for normalizing breastfeeding.

One thing we didn't mention in the podcast was that even if you schedule one person's due date each week, there is no way to predict when people will deliver (with a 5 week window of "full term"), and, consequently, no way to avoid the possibility of births overlapping--even with one person due per month. However, the more clients you have due, the…
