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. With 12 children and 18 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.

Maria Mengel joins Margo on the podcast to talk about her birth experiences and the lessons she has taken away from them.

Maria is a mother of two, wife, music teacher, doula, childbirth educator, placenta specialist, and owner of the newly launched Thrive Birth Services of Delmarva. She began her professional career as a musician at West Virginia University.

After college, spent 5 years teaching music education in public schools. Following her first birth, her life completely changed. She continued teaching French horn lessons privately, but devoted the rest of her life to her family and to birth work and study.

It was only after her second birth, one year ago today, that she learned the true meaning of power. Self power, the power of birth, and the power of listening to oneself and letting go. Maria is committed to creating a local birth community on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where women can guide each other in finding their own power together.

She finds joy in sharing the influential lessons she learned in her two birth experiences with others, hoping that they, too, will find joy in sharing theirs.
