We're Maryn + Margo

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.

Radical, autonomous “prenatal care”; the DEPTH and BEAUTY of caring for ourselves in pregnancy!
**
Margo and I both are HUGE advocates of women taking charge during their prenatal time. This is SO not a black and white thing, though, because it means different things for different people. As it should! We have come to believe that “prenatal care” is so fixed; we go somewhere, someone else measures, weighs and assess us; this someone else tells us if everything is ok or not…and we go on our way, till next month!

We need to BLOW THIS apart; because even if someone chooses this, it CANNOT be the only way that prenatal care looks. And I am going to go out on a limb and say that this “outside of ourselves” prenatal care is pretty useless, and confidence-degrading, and really is fucking up our birth outcomes because these turn out to be the same women (not a coincidence!) that give up power in their births.
**
So whatcha gonna do about it?! Well, for starters, start to rethink all this and access all of our beginning free podcasts (“Taking Back Birth, on iTunes if you didn’t know!). Yay! Today’s gift will help you OWN this prenatal care (again, whether you are also choosing to see someone or not!) because we are offering you 50% OFF our amazing DIY Prenatal Skills Mini Course. Because we believe in you, and you need to know all the things in this course so you know what you want, and what you don’t want, and what all this stuff means, anyway.

Get this today for $50 (wheeeee!) and spread the wealth. Keep it, share it, teach other women what you learned because we are the change.
