It's a Podcast and a birth worker mentorship all in one.
We actually have three podcast series, our original Taking Back Birth, the Birth Warrior Podcast, and Midwifery for the People...
You can check out all three here.
This is the original podcast series that Maryn started at the beginning of her 7th pregnancy in 2013. The collection has been called "total gold", and covers nearly every topic imaginable from preconception through early mothering.
This is for those of you who love your birth stories straight up and from the source. All birth stories, all the time. Get out your kleenex!
Midwifery for the People is hosted by Margo, and is a treasure trove of interviews, topic specific episodes, fly-on-the-wall coaching sessions, and more.
Meet the duo behind Indie Birth
We are mamas and midwives who decided to do birth differently– and bring others along with us. We are radical, fun to work with, and great at (lovingly) calling people on their bullshit to help move us all towards a new more beautiful world. With 12 children and over two decades 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.

A friend of mine was planning a birth that would be just her and her husband at home maybe 6 years ago, that concept blew my mind - so I googled "giving birth yourself" and came across Indie Birth. I learned you had a podcast and all the resources and started listening.
