    Great pod cast, Maryn! I absolutely love that you’re out there doing this. Indie Birth is such a blessing to so many and I pray that many many more women will be shown the truth about birth.

  2. Thank you for sharing hour truth Maryn, fascinating listening. I really honour your journey as a midwife through this. My journey as a mother without that perspective, was much simpler. Your experience is invaluable.
