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. With 12 children and 20 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.

The Student Midwife Primer

Natalia is a Puerto Rican, Jewish mother of 3 little girls and wife to an outspoken truth seeker, who lives in suburban home that she lovingly considers her little farm where she works and homeschools her children. After birthing her second child and tandem nursing, Natalia lost two pregnancies in a state of total depletion, in which, her husband, then inspired Natalia to be intellectually honest and strict with her self care. Finding and fixing the physical and emotional root causes of her postpartum imbalances changed her complete worldview and left Natalia with a deep passion to help other women do the same.
