About the Birth Kweens Podcast
Being pregnant can make your head spin with questions of where and how to give birth not to mention what the heck to do once you have a baby.
Sifting through all the options, opinions, anecdotal evidence and horror stories from friends, family and the internet can be overwhelming but worse the information can be inaccurate and incomplete. Karly Nuttall and Ali Feroah created the Birth Kweens Podcast when they saw the need for more women to have access to seasoned expert opinions on pregnancy, birth, postpartum and women’s health. Our goal is to use our years of experience in natural women’s health and maternity care to inform women about their options with a funny, lighthearted approach. We work with companies who can fill a need for our naturally inclined and loyal listeners.
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.
Meet The Kweens
Karly, Midwife & Hormone Specialist
With over 700 babies delivered and nearly two decades of clinical experience as both a licensed midwife and hormone specialist, Karly was first introduced to the birth world when her mom gave birth to her two younger brothers at home.
At age 19 she pursued her dream of becoming a birth worker and attended the Midwives College of Utah in 1999 where she became a Certified Professional Midwife. Since then she has interned at a busy birth center in El Paso, TX, became a Licensed Midwife in California, gained a lot of experience working at a birth center in San Diego, started her own practice, volunteered delivering babies in Senegal, West Africa, and acquired certifications as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Vaginal Steam Practitioner.
In 2017 Karly joined a mastermind that she continues with today that gave her the confidence, support and knowledge to launch the Birth Kweens podcast with friend and co-host Ali Feroah. The marketing and technical knowledge she gained from that community has largely contributed to the success and rapidly expanding popularity of the podcast.
Ali, Doula & Photographer
Ali Feroah is a doula, photographer, and co-host of the new informative and funny birth and women’s health podcast, Birth Kweens.
A Nevada transplant to San Diego, Feroah got her start in the birth world fresh off of graduation from the University of San Diego in 2011. After a viewing of the educational documentary “The Business of Being Born” piqued her interest, the health and lifestyle coach sought out a career in birth work. Ali began as a volunteer doula in 2013 at Best Start Birth Center, California’s first licensed and nationally accredited birth center. As both the Volunteer Doula Program Coordinator at Best Start and sole practitioner at her own business, Setting Roots Birth Services, Ali subscribes to an individualized and supportive model of care for her clients.
Offering doula services in hospital, home, and birth center settings, Ali also provides birth photography, rebozo, and belly binding, as well as breastfeeding and postpartum support.

Through monthly podcast partnerships, we promote your products/brand either through a pre- or mid-roll advertisement or an interview (that lives at the end of a podcast episode) with a happy customer or brand rep along with further promotion on Instagram, Facebook and potentially our newsletter. We will work together to find moms to interview for the ad spot and we will handle creating images/video for promotion on Instagram while also inviting you to provide any content you want to promote. We know our listeners like a combination of humor and good information and know how to make the posts that will be visible and appealing.
Have you worked with podcast advertising before? It’s known for having great conversion due to audience trust and niche audiences. Here’s an article that talks a bit about that if its new to you. We only work with brands that make sense for our audience or that we’ve had personal experience plus we have loyal listeners and super fans so selling should be a cinch!
