The Podcast:


Birth is beyond beautiful. It is messy, powerfully intense, and all-encompassing. Our Beyond Beautiful Birth podcast, hosted by Natalie Tregaskiss and Dr. Dori Skye Engel, will help you take control of your birth by helping you increase your confidence and explore your options.

Natalie is a registered midwife, labour & delivery nurse, and board certified lactation consultant. Dr. Dori is a naturopathic doctor and birth doula. With 6 children and 25 years of clinical experience between them, they’re uniquely positioned to facilitate open, honest, engaging dialogue around pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. They invite you to be intentional about the birth that you want, reducing fear and increasing trust in your body and the birth process, to feel empowered throughout any potential birth outcome.

No aspect is off limits. Our hosts respectfully dig into topics like birth politics, consent, bias and trauma. They engage with fascinating guests and partake in interesting discussions from their realistic, educated, evidence-based and non-judgmental perspective. If you are looking for inclusive, down to earth, no bull, humorous discussions about physiological birth without scare tactics or condescension, look no further. Surrender to the flow and get ready to do that incredible, magical and mind blowing thing - bringing life into the world!
