What Makes The Midwife Life Unique

The Vision

Traditional “midwifery school” focuses on teaching for a test, and ignores that true midwifery is a combination of mind, heart and spirit. Our work together will address all levels of your development from deep internal work extremely practical clinical skills.

How It Works

A variety of courses are offered each 10 week trimester. Each course features expert perspectives and unique resources. Each course offers opportunities for introspection and synthesizing of the material in a variety of ways.

Join a Community of Sisters

It’s challenging to not feel like a “black sheep” in the traditional world of birth. You will leave our classes with a stronger sense of self, a clearer idea of your own truths, a path that is uniquely yours and a deeper bond to the greater Sisterhood.

Do you want to be a midwife and you’re wondering how to get from where you are today, to where you want to be – at births? Here at Indie Birth we have largely forged our own paths to get to this point but luckily you don’t have to (at least not entirely).

In this FREE Indie Birth event we will guide you through the 5 steps you need to take in order to live the #midwifelife. The women that want to hire you can’t do that if you don’t start walking down this path, and we are here to gently nudge you along!

Meet The Midwives

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.

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.
