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 20 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 Student Midwife Primer

I am starting the year with a review of the births experiences in which I had the honor of being in the midwife role.

There were first time mamas, and fifth time mamas. There were water births and land births. Boys and girls (just about even!) and of course each experience was unique and beautiful in it’s own way. Listen in on some abbreviated stories from my perspective and some clinical notes; plus what I took away from many of them and what I am manifesting going forward!

I realized after recording I left a few out because technically I wasn’t present. But for the records sake (and because I still cared so much for these women!) one woman experienced a very very preterm birth (in the hospital, obviously and all is well!) and we had at least one special client who needed to move away given all the economic stuff around this virus.

I also talk about the losses experienced as well, since that is most definitely a piece of midwifery care. It was a special year for babies coming onto this planet, and I see and feel more of those special souls making a graceful entrance in 2021.
