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

Lykke is a mother, wife, creator, and facilitator of a woman’s circle in her small, beautiful village in Denmark. Her tale is an inner journey towards re-shaping a nurturing and trusting relationship to her intuition and the innate wisdom of her body – something that had been abandoned for most of her life, and wove into her ability to make authentic, intuitive choices in pregnancy and birth. Through the chrysalis of maiden to mother, Lykke’s unwanted cesarean became a catalyst for developing a deep, conscious relationship with her cyclical nature and a doorway to the foundational layers of her womanhood and wombspace.

This story will be a bit different then episodes past – while, simultaneously, being a story that is all too common: the primal process that is physiological birth not unfolding the way we had hoped nor planned, and ending in technocratic intervention. I myself have walked this road.

I chose to share Lykke’s story not to reframe it nor to impose the also all too common, and quite frankly, very ignorant narrative of “well at least you and baby are safe and healthy.” Quite, the contrary. I chose this story as a connecting point for any mother or birthgiver that might be on a healing journey from their children’s entrance into this world and possible birth trauma – however that may look. And to offer the idea that from these experiences – our tribulations and our traumas – coexists the gift of wisdom and the opportunity for growth.
