We are mamas and birth workers who decided to do birth differently– and bring others along with us. We are kind, fun to work with, and great at (lovingly) calling people on their bullshit. With 12 children and 18 years of midwifery between us, we’ve learned a thing or two along the way, and Indie Birth is our space to share it all with you.

I’ve been talking to some really cool midwives lately, and this episode is no exception. Jessica, affectionately known as the Combat Midwife, tells us about her origin story, her work teaching birth skills to military medics, and midwifing in a refugee camp. Her energy is contagious! I was so excited to explore some unique ways that being a midwife can look in the world, and Jessica did not disappoint. We need more smart midwives in the world doing their thing and bringing this wisdom to all different parts of our culture in order to make a change. I hope that Jessica inspires you to do that.
