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.

Doula Guide

Katrina is a Self employed, Hardworking off grid homestead mother of two. Deep in the forest in an earthship she built with her partner, she had an unassisted birth with her second son. On this journey she learned lots about patience, acceptance, and trusting your intuition.

JADEN’S NOTE: Toward the end of the episode, Katrina and I begin to discuss the aspect of isolation that can come with being a mother/parent in our fast-paced, capitalist, do-it-all-yourself Western culture – aka “the age of loneliness.” As we are in the midst of a global pandemic, where many are practicing social distancing, this disconnect from community may be magnified and intensified among certain people and circles. In response to this need to stay connected with other like-minded folks, I’ve included a few resources in the show notes for various virtual mothers/sister/women’s circles. Hopefully, you’ll find something that resonates with you or feel free to leave a comment below to links to circles you are involved in and love.
