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 when necessary. With 11 children and 16 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.

The Powerful
Doula Guide

Listen in as I share how, when and where I moved from practicing as a licensed midwife to autonomous midwifery, practicing under a PMA (aka PCA) structure in a state that requires mandatory licensing.

This is NOT a “how to” set up a PMA or why I think you need to, but a chronological explanation of my own journey and how I came to this place for myself. I really urge you to listen if you are at ALL curious, about any of it, including midwifery regulation. I’d also REALLY urge you to listen if you identify (openly or secretly!) with feeling fear in practicing autonomously.

We need more courageous, truthful birth workers who follow their own light, and not the darkness of the current legalities/regulations/persecutions around midwifery and birth.

This is really for any healer or practitioner who is curious and open about alternative ways to work with people.

For more info and education on the technical side and with help in setting up a PMA, visit sovereignbusiness.org/pca101. My husband Jason offers education and 1:1 mentorship.
