The Practitioner’s Role In Ecstatic Birth

Pleasure is the most holistic birthing tool there is and yet it is rarely introduced as a viable option by birth practitioners to their clients. In this training, we will discuss the benefits of pleasure in birth preparation and planning, and explore the spectrum of ways in which we can use pleasure to support expectant moms and to nourish ourselves.

Creating The Space: How To Manifest An Undisturbed Third Stage

This class is for all the midwives out here who want to intentionally “do less” during the birth of the placenta and for all the mamas who want to OWN this part of their birth! Even women planning freebirths will benefit from this class because we will be looking at NORMAL physiology and also the “way that we’ve been taught” placenta birth looks (wait; do we even know what it looks like?)

Indie Birth Visionaries

Maryn Green has been in the birth world for over 13 years, and has been attending women as a midwife since 2009. She has written numerous blog posts and recorded over 140 (and counting!) podcasts on iTunes (“Taking Back Birth”) that encourage women and midwives to rethink what they have been taught, and re-connect with ancient wisdom in combination with current research and knowledge. Her motto; The woman is always the center of her spiral! Most passionate about physiological birth and the fate of future generations, Maryn has been taught by witnessing hundreds of undisturbed births, the best of which have been the births of her own 9 children. 

- Maryn

Margo came to the world of pregnancy, birth and babies by way of serendipity and a deep inner calling before ever being pregnant herself. During her college years, she was focused on the history and strategies of social justice activism, women’s personal and collective empowerment, and the development of her own personal vision for a healthy, just and sustainable community. She now brings that background and passion to her community midwifery.  She completed a traditional apprenticeship with Maryn from 2011 to 2016, and has been attending births as a midwife since that time. Celosia, Margo's daughter, was born at home in 2014, against all odds, and that experience has been the continuing inspiration for much of her work around concepts of risk, variations of normal, and woman-centered midwifery.
