We're Maryn + Margo

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.

The Beginners Guide to Radical Midwifery

by Megan Ojeda


Eyes shut
The lingering scent of stale sweet smoke
Frankincense alighted from before I ‘woke
Haze fills my mind
Fog of sleep
Thick and deep
What stirring occurs nearby?
The warmth of a body with nursing lips
A bundle of blankets not past my hips
Birds twitter and my bundle coos
Who is this?
In my body
Organs amiss
Flattened and jelly-like
For now, I am not human but mother
Mother?
Eyes open
Soft light pushing through the curtain
A meal, a drink, a purpose so certain
Today, in the morning
I was rebirthed
I am sky
I am water
I am the earth
