I had something that felt like a mix of a vision and a dream happen to me the other night as I was laying with my daughter at bedtime. My daughter was asleep, and as so often is the case I had my eyes closed too until I jerked my eyes open with a start.

We are shocked and sad to share that a wonderful woman in the birth community, dear to Indie Birth, and women worldwide, died suddenly and unexpectedly a few days ago. I met Sara Arrington about 5 years ago. We met online, realized that we were only 3 hours distance from each other. Sara came up

Is the community midwife a unicorn? I’ve been wondering if, because of politics and rules and regs (amongst the reasons), this community figure has become more myth and a thing of the past. I’m definitely sad if this is the case, and for many reasons I mourn her. Maybe it’s not like this where you

It was such a privilege to be interviewed by Maryn for an episode of the IndieBirth Podcast! I was terribly nervous, and I rambled on, getting worked up as I always do whenever I talk about birth or birth politics, but I loved the chance to speak with a woman who, through the miracle of

Little Celosia started refusing to wear a diaper and pretty painlessly and quickly learned to use the potty recently. In the ensuing weeks I have had a lot of time to sit with her while she poops, and it has been alarming to me how much I have used my doula/midwifey skills which probably which
