What are you most nervous about becoming a mother? What are you most looking forward to? What advice do you have as an experienced parent?

These are questions that Richland Source has set out to answer through a partnership with the Listening Post Collective and the Solutions Journalism Network. Using a Listening Post built by the Renaissance Theatre at the Richland Source Community Baby Shower on Sept. 9, we interviewed more than 100 mothers about their experience with parenthood.

Special thanks to Aaron Nicolas from the Renaissance Theatre for building the Listening Post, and to Burgess Brown from the Listening Post for guidance.
