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.

Hah, trick question. My answer when people ask me is: I have no idea!

What I DO care about if someone asks is that they think about what they want, what they want their ENTIRE experience to feel like (NOT just the birth!) and if they’re ready to get real with themselves about their own limitations and beliefs.

Anything is possible…but in modern life and cultural craziness around birth, most first time mamas have a LOT to wade through. We all deserve support in the way we want it, and freebirth is only truly the answer for some. I talk about the benefits and drawbacks of having an autonomous midwife present for your journey; and how to better understand what we offer and if that fits your vision.
