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.

Doula Guide

I recorded this podcast for my class, “multidimensional midwifery in the prenatal period: how to prepare yourself for prenatal complications,” as our students were studying pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome.

I came across Rachel Bandstra, on one of our Indie Birth Facebook groups who was (briefly) sharing her story of having prenatal eclampsia in her first pregnancy. I wanted to interview her and hear her story since full-blown seizures in pregnancy is pretty rare and I wanted to learn all I can! Thanks, Rachel!
