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 18 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

Hailey Kirksey is a 28 year old Arkansas native, married, and a mother of two young children; holding a Master of Liberal Arts degree in English Literature, she is currently writing a novel while living as a full-time “stay-at-home-mom.” With the hope of inspiring other birthing women, Hailey will be juxtaposing the stories of her two home births in under two years, the second of which allowed her to come fully into her power as a woman. The ultimate message of her story is this: whether we have one birth or more than one, birth can give us the greatest opportunity to discover our true strength as women.
