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.

In this Mothering podcast, I talk about my own experiences and thoughts around all the various transitions or “rites of passage” that babies and young kids might experience.

When they experience these things, so do we! I cover some examples from night weaning to losing teeth, and explore why these transitions are such big deals and how they might affect the entire family. As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences about this topic.

  1. Hey, beautiful sister. What a pleasure to listen to you. I laughed and cried, nodded and giggled all the way… I obviously feel like you in so many ways when living these transitions with my kids -being able to be with them, not rushing through anything and trying to support them as they grow and change so much! And then catching myself wishing or wanting them to do something in a certain way, and also realizing how each kid is so unique and will go through these rites differently in their own time and way.

    One of the transitions as seen by the Waldorf philosophy that has helped me a lot is the one that takes place at around 8 or 9 years of age… you know, when they realize they’re growing up and there’s no turning back – they’re saying goodbye to their child years. Of course this takes time and shedding light on it has helped me be more available for them for this subtle yet potent emotional shift.

    Something else that comes to mind is when kids are sick, and I guess this could be an entire podcast, and how we deal with the situation as parents – what triggers us, our fears, limitations and all the surrendering… Well, I think those are great opportunities for growth in both sides (the sick kid and the parent, I mean)… Anyways, I’m really enjoying these mothering podcasts. Can’t wait for more! Love you!
