Working With HBAC Mamas
Taking Back Birth Podcast
by Maryn Green
1w ago
This podcast was inspired by a student considering working with a mama who’s had a prior cesarean and wanting to birth at home. I realized how much goes into this for me as a midwife, and what helps me understand and fully believe in a mama who I’m supporting after cesarean. I told her that even when it all goes beautifully (which is often!) it can feel like a grad level course for the new midwife or student. Here are some things to consider, assess and weigh for yourself if you are considering taking on a woman who has had a cesarean; they make amazing clients often, and of course are still j ..read more

Embodying the Midwife Archetype
Taking Back Birth Podcast
by Maryn Green
2w ago
In this podcast, Margo and I dream about the new version of “midwife” that we are helping to create in this world and through our Indie Birth Midwifery School. It is truly time for a change; away from the drastic, static versions of what exists and has come before. We are imagining a world where the midwife archetype is values by herself, her clients and her community as a world and life changing role. Enrolling in Indie Birth Midwifery School now!

Imagining the Virtual Apprenticeship as a Real Option
Taking Back Birth Podcast

1M ago
What if students could learn and practice and be in an “apprenticeship” that isn’t in the physical? We may try it out with a few of my former students who live in Kentucky as I stay living in Hawai’i. I love the idea of creating this model and making it sustainable and a win for all; the student, the mama client and the mentoring midwife. I do think it’s possible once the kinks get worked out, and we’ll keep you posted here on how it’s developing! Click the icon below to listen.       ..read more

Stories of Homebirth Mamas in Hawai’i with Dr. Alexandra Kisitu 
Taking Back Birth Podcast
by Maryn Green
2M ago
“A return to all that is human, sacred and ancient” -Alexandra Kisitu I loved talking to kindred spirit and author Alexandra about her book, “Back to the Womb: Claiming Birth Sovereignty”. I really loved this discussion with such a kick-ass, smart woman who has dug deeper into the culture of home birth here in Hawai’i. Alexandra also includes her own personal stories and beliefs around the power and sacredness of birth. They are so similar to my own, and with midwifery politics to boot in our chat, we could have spoken for hours. Learn more about her here. Click the icon below to listen.   ..read more

An Impromptu Womb Ritual
Taking Back Birth Podcast

Deva is 7 today! Her majorly watched birth video is below for you to watch again and share. Otherwise, I share a short recent story and celebration of my womb in the event that you feel inspired and are led to do something similar. I am being shown more and more that ritual in one way that our bodies lead us when they need us to focus and feel; ceremony and ritual can be simple, something we do alone in the spur of the moment, and still be profound and meaningful.

Embodiment and Birth Work
Taking Back Birth Podcast
by Maryn Green
2M ago
What is embodiment? Listen in on some musings around what this is and isn’t; I also share some personal stories around learning to feel in my body, honoring where I am at and following what my body is feeling. I definitely see this as (one of) the missing links in abundant and joyful birth work; this ability to sense and decode what’s going on for us, so we can more readily meet the woman in front of us. I also explain what my Beyond the Mind Circle for Birthworkers is; check it out and join me for this 4 week somatic adventure in April. Click the icon below to listen.      ..read more
