Jaden Graham is a birth worker serving pregnant women and families in coastal, rural Northern California, a Western folk herbalist, a writer, and forever student in the mysteries and teachings of this infinite abyss. When inspiration moved her brightly during her powerful journey into motherhood, she, influenced by her midwives, Lily and Jami (and, of course, by her sweet son, Terrapin), realized her calling to walk with women/birthing people in the full continuum of embodied wombhood. In 2020, she was graciously asked by Maryn Green to host “Birth Warrior Podcast” (and continues so to this day) – a virtual space for birth story medicine, that has been such a beautiful teacher indeep, grounded listening (an incredibly IMPORTANT skill to cultivate for a future midwife!), as well as a nourishing balm to her spirit. Rooted in a passion for building community, and for the beauty of the subjectivity and interconnectedness of all life, you can find more of her magic, musings, and herbal offerings on Instagram @thankful_earth and @spiralpathbirth.”
Cydney is quite the epitome of the lover and mother archetypes. She is naturally a nurturer and sees the heart and human experience of others first and foremost. She began as a doula and jumped right into midwifery shortly after due to the fulfillment of her purpose involving the restoration and reawakening of the divine feminine and wise woman. Though her love for and deep connection to children reigns true, she has embraced the call to assisting women in claiming their autonomy at this intricate time through surrendering to our powerful bodies and transformative human experience.
Megan is a Jewish wife and mother of three (with the third being born in the middle of the school year). She likes overthinking, overbooking, and long walks on the beach. Birth became a passion of hers just before conceiving her firstborn, when she stumbled on the Indie Birth podcast Taking Back Birth and became an instant fan. Punk rock at heart, she’s excited to be a part of ushering in the new paradigm of birthing.
