Howdy! Margo here. I LOVE doing virtual midwifery visits. We will laugh, we might cry, and we will definitely go deep. I want to be your sister/guide/research assistant/light reflector and midwife, and I can't wait to connect with you and your beautiful story.
I started training to be a midwife when I was 21 when I was a baby myself. I have now attended births as a midwife since 2016 in multiple states, and now even internationally (sort of, it's a long story, ha!).
I had two autonomous pregnancy and birth experiences of my own, and also had two self directed, at home miscarriages before my live births.
My secret sauce includes my mad research and resourcing skillz, growth mindset, my love of goal setting and accountability, and a potpouri of esoteric and metaphysical interests that I bring into my midwifery work. Want to see the literature about GBS and also do a shamanic journey to discover your own truth about it? I'm your gal.
I love doing all sorts of midwifery work, but I also seem to attract and work especially well with women going through things I have been through myself as a woman and as a midwife. Specialities of mine are eating for optimal health, managing blood sugar with nutrition, cultivating healthy movement practices, getting clarity about your birth desires, chronic hypertension and gestational hypertension, preparing for a home birth with a first baby, long labor preparation, pregnancy after loss, first time parenting in the postpartum, partnership conflict in the postpartum, recurrent miscarriage, and low progesterone.

I offer two packages for people seeking midwifery support.
I offer one off, supercharged sessions for people who are seeking short term support. Maybe you just want a second perspective on an issue that has come up in your pregnancy, or you need a "sanity gathering session" in the postpartum. This is also great for birth story debriefing and pre-conception consultation (although often multiple session are beneficial for tweaks and discoveries with fertility work).
I also offer 4 sessions at a reduced price per time for women who want longer term support and continuity. The 4 sessions can be used any way you like, within a year of purchase. You could use all 4 for preconception, prenatal, or postpartum sessions, or a mix of any and all types of sessions I offer.
"It’s so strange and magical that someone living thousands of miles away would become closest to us on our birth journey! Margo is Love embodied — it was so easy to connect, trust, and let her in on a most intimate, fragile and sacred process. Every call ended with me feeling so light and confident, so grounded and well-informed, so curious and excited for what’s to come. She held space for me to work through my fears; to listen to my (physical, emotional, spiritual) Self more deeply; and to take full responsibility over my experience. Simply asking what I want and need every step of the way was incredibly empowering, and was so essential to my journey towards discovering and owning my Truth. Looking back, the whole process led me to birth in power, and for the first time in my life, to fall absolutely in Love with myself!" Read more about Sarah, and see her birth video here.
I love the space that Maryn holds for me, around whatever it is that feels important for me to explore during a session. I feel so supported and validated in my process during this huge time of transition in my life. I also feel endlessly grateful for Maryn‘s wealth of knowledge and the diversity of support she is able to offer me, around whatever area that may be coming up for me. I appreciate the way she incorporates knowledge from her years of supporting others through her time as a midwife, her extensive studies, deep wisdom, intuition, and her genuine care as a loving human being all so harmoniously in the way she shows up. I have never felt like something is missing in the space we are sharing, for lack of being in the same room. If it is something you are pondering, I highly recommend creating the space to connect with one of these incredible beings for a virtual session.
"I was in charge of my own care and the direction my pregnancy and birth went. Even when I tried to get Maryn to tell me what to do, she put the ball back in my court and helped guide me to make my own decisions. My sixth son was born at home, on a peaceful day in September. Maryn was in-tune to my needs as my labor progressed and arrived at my home in time to help me during the transitional stage of labor. She stayed with me to make sure my son was nursing and I was fed and whole."
"Until you have had an undisturbed birth of your own it’s impossible to describe how important the work that Indie Birth doing is. Indie birth is more than midwifery care it is an opportunity for women to really tune in, know their baby in the womb, trust in their body and themselves throughout the pregnancy and into birth and motherhood. Maryn and the midwives of Indie Birth provided me the tools (hands) and the personal support for me to go into birth without fear, without unnecessary intervention and with total love and trust for myself and my baby as we were finding power and connection in an undisturbed and well supported birth."
"Margo was present with me for the birth of my first child. I could not have asked for more soulful, loving, empowering and excellent guidance and care getting ready for birth. She is smart, well studied, passionate and one of the kindest people I know. I also love her honesty and sense of humor but those are just a bonus…Never does my sons birthday pass when I don’t think of Margo and the angel that she was to me at the time of my greatest need for support. You could not make a better choice of a wise woman to assist and support you in birth."
