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.

In this podcast, I talk about homebirth to hospital transports. Why is there such stigma around this? How do we talk about “needed” transport in an era of midwifery at home being defined by “rules and regulations? How do we deal emotionally with transport when we are the mamas? Or the Midwives?

This is an emotionally charged topic in the home birth world and I hope that my thoughts help bring this back to earth! Transports will happen as long as birth is happening and with some intention and attention, we can make the most of this situation.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful insight! You have such depth of understanding. You will touch many women, both birth mothers and attendants with this non-non-condeming perspective. Thank you!
