About Us

“F*ck! I’m pregnant.” Glow actress Kimmy Gatewood is here to tell you... It’ll. Be. Okay. How long should you breastfeed? Does your baby need to wear organic, homeopathic onesies? How do you find work-life balance? What if you suck at motherhood? Through investigative journalism, comedy, and honest interviews, Kimmy aims to uncover what it truly means to be a modern parent in an over-informed, Google-obsessed, placenta-eating world. Parenting: When you feel like you’re faking it, you’re doing it just right.
