Hey There Kweens!

Welcome to the official Birth Kweens Podcast page! We see you; all revved up and ready to take charge of finding the very best info for the best pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience like the bad b*tch you are! We’re right there with you. We know you’re looking for experienced voices from care providers who have seen it all (so ya know we’re not judgy), who will laugh and cry at birth stories, cut the sh*t about the many realities of reproducing, and cover topics about women’s health that you didn’t know you needed to know!

Listening to the Birth Kweens feels like you’re hanging with a coupla your favorite gals who happen to be birth and women’s health experts. Although we present a lot of natural options, your kweens aren’t about pressuring or guilting anyone into having a certain kind of birth experience. Whether you squat your baby out on your living room floor or plan your cesarean, we support you! Like we said, we’re not judgy. We just want you to know your options because if you don’t know your options, you don’t have any!

We have a wildly fun and honest perspective gleaned from a combined 1,000+ births at homes, birth centers, hospitals and a rural African town. Ali’s experience as a doula and photographer and Karly’s experience as a midwife, hormone specialist, vaginal steam practitioner, and student of herbs and nutrition combine to give you a truly unique take on this crazy journey of giving life. So tune in to our podcast every Thursday on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, GooglePlay or here on our website! You can expect us to connect you with amazing practitioners and authors, prepare you for the basics and not-so-basics of all things pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and women’s health related and laugh way more than is appropriate.
