The Fourth Trimester Podcast is a radio show about life during the first few months following birth. Our mission is to improve the fourth trimester experience for all parents.
Expecting and new parents, grandparents, friends of parents and any helpers will benefit from listening to the Fourth Trimester Podcast. Knowing what to expect in terms of life with a new baby is helpful whether it is your own baby, or if you are supporting someone you love. You'll hear practical, social and emotional guidance from professionals with expertise in different aspects of family and child care. Guests include medical doctors, midwives, doulas, fitness coaches, personal development coaches, physical therapists, psychiatrists, film makers, and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.

Sarah Trott is the producer and the co-host on the Fourth Trimester Podcast. She created the show with Esther Gallagher after realizing that many of the questions she had about her own experience as a new parent were the same questions Esther was asking some thirty years prior. She is passionate about helping other new parents find the answers and confidence they need on their parenting journey.
When she is not podcasting, Sarah works in tech in Silicon Valley.
Esther Gallagher is Sarah Trott's co-host at Fourth Trimester Podcast and she is finding this project to be a source of fulfillment on personal, social and political levels. Her calling is to support new families during the transition to parenthood and participate in culture-change through educating Americans about the lost legacy of new-family support.
