It's a Podcast and a midwifery mentorship all in one.

We actually have three podcast series, our original Taking Back Birth, the Birth Warrior Podcast, and Well, Actually...

You can check out all three here.

The Indie Birth Podcast Series

Taking Back Birth

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.

Well, Actually

Well, Actually is the sporadically produced podcast that Margo hosts. It involves lots of interviews, and a mix of super nerdy + humorous musings on a wide variety of midwifery topics.

Meet the duo behind Indie Birth

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.

Taking Back Birth

Storytelling is a powerful agent of change. We are so excited to be offering a new podcast series of inspiring stories of birth from our Indie Birth Community!

I found Indie Birth when I was planning my first unassisted home birth. I think I found the website first and then your podcast. I accidentally stumbled upon it and quickly realized I had struck gold. I am a birth nerd and hope to one day be at least a midwife assistant.

"I have listened to nearly all the podcasts."

Indie Birth honestly got me through PPD after moving to a new town where I knew no one. They helped me feel less alone and I learned a ton! I love all of them!

"...got me through PPD."

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.

"I love everything
you do!"
