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.

This may be an intense one, but is highly personal as our kids experienced the death of one of our beloved dogs recently. This is another ramble, but one about the belief systems that we have taught our kids regarding death, and also a sharing into what this has looked and felt like for different family members.

    you are amazing.i have never heard anything in any of your podcasts, i don’t, whole heartedly agree with. rarely do i encounter someone who shares the same core beliefs, with such conviction and courage to be true to yourself. i appreciated your recent pod on basil passing over into the immensity. our dog wagger (sir wag a lot) died over two weeks. it was a spiritual privilege to
    accompany him through his rite of passage and receive such beautiful powerful teachings about
    undisturbed death, how we grieve, what we glimpse, witness ing ‘the agreement’, the same agreement, ‘great alignment’ we see around birth. reverence for how the creator and mother nature orchestrate the dance of our body and soul. thank you for your generosity of spirit, your wisdom, your devotion to family and for speaking your truth.
