About If These Ovaries Could Talk

If These Ovaries Could Talk is a podcast where two lesbians chat about making babies and non-traditional families. Our hosts, Jaimie Kelton and Robin Hopkins go in-depth with weekly guests about their hopes, dreams, fears and setbacks when bringing a new life into the world with a lot of love and a good amount of science. Jaimie and Robin ask the question, what happens when these families enter a world designed for straight people?
