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.

    Thanks for your “ramblings” on the latest podcast “Thoughts and feelings 32 weeks”, I am currently 23/24 weeks and so much of your story resonates with me. The post loss pregnancy and how this baby has provided me with so much reassurance I can already sense her littler personality (as of recent) and perhaps that is why I panicked this weekend and decided her nursery was not fit for her and it needed MORE whimsy, color, texture etc…which is not my style but I certainly feel as though she will enjoy it LOL so your comment about their soul coming into being made so much sense. This is my first planned home birth and the fears are creeping in preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, preterm birth etc…(although in reality this has been the most “boring” pregnancy I have had to date)…which I have not had in my past 2 pregnancies but I suppose make me fearful of not having control of getting my home birth experience. SO I continue to envision what birth will look like and that it will all work out and deal with my fears. This pregnancy too physically has been my hardest pregnancy yet symphis pubic dysfunction, ligament pain, INSOMNIA also in my head are due to being pregnant so much this last year or my AGE. Although it may feel like ramblings to the universe it is helpful to at least someone and relatable – thanks for sharing 🙂 Best wishes to you and this pregnancy!

    WOW exactly what I am feeling.. how can you put these complex emotions into words so perfectly! I also only have 8 weeks left, we are practically giving birth the same day! It has been so helpful to listen to these podcasts and this one specifically has brought so much relief to me. It really hits home for me, someone understands! Even the heartburn and the lack of planning at this late date. You are my hero and these podcasts are saving me. Thanks again huge time and good luck with this last leg!

    I really appreciate your podcast. I listened to it all throughout my most recent pregnancy, which was my first home birth, and loved the persectives you have. I’m curious if you have written or spoken more about your 4th child’s not coming into his body right away. It sounds fascinating and I would love to know more about what that was like.

  4. Maryn Green says:

    Thanks, Bronwyn. Yes, good reminder that I should do a podcast on his birth which also was an after-birth transport. Perhaps after this birth I will! Love, Maryn

  5. Bronwyn says:

    It’s a really interesting idea I hadn’t fully considered until you mentioned it. Looking back, I have one child that I think took much longer than her siblings, who I think were all hovering around me pre-conception and ready from the get go. Anyway, when you’re ready. Best wishes on your last months.
