Episode 54: Introducing NICU Babies, Parent Support

NICU Babies Parent Support podcast hand to hold Kathryn Whitaker

It’s a new era in the podcast and new host Kathryn Whitaker shares what listeners (and YouTube fans!) can expect this year.

In this episode, I chat about:

  • My background and why this podcast means so much to my heart.
  • Why the new format (audio and video)?
  • What are some topics and guests listeners can expect this year?
  • Why don’t more NICUs have Dr Pepper on tap? (ha!)

Kathryn Whitaker is the author of Live Big, Love Bigger, an award-winning book about living an intentional life and how her NICU baby helped her get there. She’s a sixth-generation Texan who loves queso, cowboy boots and southern hospitality. On social media and her blog, Kathryn shares her honest take on family life and living the Gospel, all while drinking Dr Pepper and cheering on the Texas A&M Aggies. She has appeared in USA Today, EWTN, radio and TV stations around the country and is a frequent guest/sometimes host on The Catholic Channel on SiriusXM. Kathryn and her husband, Scott, live with their six children in Austin, Texas.
