Indie Birth (a Private Membership Association) provides an innovative option for pregnant and birthing women who want to expand what they know and believe. Most information for pregnant women is watered down and oversimplified. We know that you are smarter than that. We offer concrete knowledge, ancient wisdom and current research so women can make choices with full awareness, from the full spectrum of choices. Similarly, we provide education and innovative ideas for the modern midwife. Midwifery has become over-medicalized, taking us far from the knowledge, support, power and wisdom that women NEED in order to birth and mother. We want to foster a community of midwives that serve families from a valuable “out of the box,” well-rounded and intelligent perspective, and we want to support the community of women looking for these midwives!
What We Offer
We have tons of offerings and more all the time. Sometimes its hard for us to keep it straight, but here is the run down! We have lots of free articles (under the free resources tab) and podcasts, many online classes and webinars (including our 5 week childbirth education course, classes on water birth, avoiding cesarean sections, prolonged labor, postpartum hemorrhage and more), and priceless recordings from our awesome 2016 conference. You can also learn more about our midwifery workshops, our Wise Woman Circle (which is an online community with monthly calls and support from a mix of awesome birth keepers and Indie Birth parents), and our brand new traditional midwifery program which has classes starting in July of 2017. Maryn and Margo are available for consults (free and paid) and we love getting to know you Indie Birth mamas! They both also offer in person pregnancy and home birth services, Maryn in northern Arizona and Margo in northern Minnesota.
