Thank you for talking about HELLP Syndrome. My daughter had to be delivered at 24 weeks because I almost died from it. There isn't enough awareness about this.

I loved the first season and couldn't wait for a day alone to listen at work. But the ads just totally killed it. Sorry I'm done listening.
