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.

    I wasn’t able to leave a review on iTunes, something wrong with my phone…this is what I wanted to write, which I also think applies to this episode:

    I have listened to almost every single episode and love the podcast. To echo others, I think Maryn speaks her mind in a free flowing way. I especially love how she pays attention to building a birth culture that supports autonomy for women and encourages their intuition. I appreciate how she dives into more philosophical thoughts around how we can be representing and teaching about birth in a way that empowers women to embody the mindset of autonomy and “take back birth”. To foster the mindset of autonomy it seems really important to say there is not guidebook, there is no one way or path, there is only your way – I love the paradigm and wisdom in that approach. Autonomy has been a consistent thread explored across many types of content on the podcast in a very organic way. Another theme I really like is how they portray birth as both simple and universal, but also infinitely complex and unique – which then makes sense for why the mindset of autonomy is so important because everyone is different and needs to listen to their own wisdom and intuition. Thank you for speaking your truth and offering the community your wisdom grown from years of experience and reflection, and also thank you for making so many resources available for free. It’s a blessing!
