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.

Skye is a somewhat transient hippie but mostly just, in her own words, an “ordinary woman,” who hopes her birth story will inspire others to trust their intuition surrounding their births, even (or perhaps, especially) when it may not be what they had originally planned for. She shares the message that unassisted birth is possible, natural, and magical, and that women are not only capable but truly deserve to feel empowered by their own birth experiences.
