I’ve been listening for years and Maryn’s such an inspiration to me spiritually. I love how she lives & shares her truth. She also brings complexity, wisdom and insight to the divine feminine experience of WOMEN in birth and life! Powerful. If it resonates, you will know! (and if not, just...Read full review »

I remember having an argument with Maryn more than a decade and a half ago about Maryn’s support for the “the Big Push” movement that prioritized routinely medicalized midwifery practices. It’s nice to see she’s grown up a bit and understands how slippery bodily autonomy really is. I do find it...Read full review »

This podcast is a PURE GEM among the MANY options to listen to on natural/physiological birth. I am still a maiden and birth became my OBSESSION after a potent medicine ceremony in which I was (suddenly and wholly unexpectedly) shown that I am meant to be a mother in this lifetime. Thus, my...Read full review »

I thought I was savvy to homebirth before I came across this podcast two years ago. And, Indie Birth — the work of podcast host Maryn and her colleague Margo — have fundamentally shifted my views of birth, especially in regards to sovereignty and responsibility. P.S. Make sure you check out...Read full review »

Maryn is such an inspiration and is changing the world. Thank you for sharing your light with us.
thevillagedoulanv via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/22
I have listened to almost every episode to date. If you want to learn more about autonomy in pregnancy, birth, midwifery and beyond, then thus podcast is for you!

Thank you, Maryn, for sharing your voice with us. I’ve learned a ton!!
EHW2013 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/22
Such a great podcast that has been so helpful to me in this pregnancy!
madison69363940 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/22
Calling a the desire to birth freely a product of patriarchy, or reducing it to a trend, disqualifies this podcast from being considered a support for women who seek a birth outside of the medical space. Therein lies a lack of understanding about the risks of medical births (including the...Read full review »

I’ve been binging this podcast for a year and a half before ever being pregnant. Now that I’m newly pregnant, Maryn’s voice brings me so much comfort. I love that even the darker aspects of pregnancy and birth are brought up so beautifully. I’ve been able to fully surrender during this process so...Read full review »

If you are someone who enjoys listening to people ramble to a horrible grainy microphone for an hour+, by all means this podcast is for you. If not, please trust my judgement and save yourself some time! This podcast is horrible. I don’t want to listen to Maryn complain about not getting a free...Read full review »

Finding new ways to look at things, especially birth related things, is something I challenge myself with constantly. Maryn always offers up a deeper dive than most people are willing to go, but those of us who want to go there really appreciate it. I appreciate how she searches for truth and...Read full review »

Maryn’s way of communicating tricky topics is so fabulous! As an aspiring mama, it’s been near impossible to find information about physiological birth and this podcast (along with other awesome Indie Birth offerings) has been an absolute blessing. I’m feeling confident and excited, as opposed to...Read full review »

I always appreciate Maryn’s clear minded words. She refuses to attach herself to any dogma, and instead provides balanced and powerful perspective on the issues facing women and birth workers.
The Kentucky Doula via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/22
I get so excited every time I see a new episode posted. I love that Maryn is so knowledgeable & at the same time very spiritually connected. I especially enjoy when Maryn & Margo record together. I can’t wait to hear more and watch as the sanctuary project unfolds.
hollyacu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/22
This podcast started my love for birth! It’s relevant to every woman; maiden, pregnant, or postpartum. Grounded in science, logic, and truth, Maryn does an amazing job of helping you ask the hard questions and challenge your fears and beliefs. She covers every question I come up with from...Read full review »

To Maryn and Margo I offer my deepest gratitude. They hold the space for us to truly remember the innate wisdom we hold within as women and as mothers. I just wish I found these gems sooner!!! I just birthed my fourth a year ago and found out about Indiebirth in the last weeks of my pregnancy....Read full review »

When I see a new podcast from Taking Back Birth, I’m so eager to listen! Maryn does a wonderful job of sharing all her thoughts and knowledge on her podcast. ❤️ I always learn something new!
ashleylaura17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/22
Maryn speaks about the birth in a way that is sorely lacking in our world. She brings equipoise, compassion and curiosity to her craft, and I think every man and woman compelled by the mystique of birth has something to gain from this podcast ❤️🥰
beyondthemd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/18/22
Maryn, I’m overjoyed to have your voice (of reason and sanity) in my head. I really enjoy listening to your musings on all things birth, life, death, and the sacred. I really appreciate your candidness and the way in which you are so honest and real. Thank you for this!
Shinay Tredeau via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/22
The podcast began with a great bang, then the truth and confusion began to slowly dribble out. I do not recommend this podcast for any women trying to find positive, encouraging, and female empowering audio while pregnant.
RhiannonBanks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/22
Maryn and Margo are probably my idols of the birth world. As someone new to the field of birth work, I wasn’t resonating with the bounds of information I was finding and I definitely didn’t resonate with what I’ve experienced and seen regarding the birth world. I knew there was more and I’m so...Read full review »

So much knowledge and wisdom shared here. No matter how humble these women may be, they offer so much light. Thank you🙏

Sooo good. Every episode is fascinating & soul-opening! Refreshing and grounding… just the voice on woman-and-motherhood-centered-spirituality (and practicality!) I’ve been searching for. Indie Birth is such a fertile & thorough resource, not just for birth workers, or mothers, or even...Read full review »

Maryn has a lot going on and she cannot truly be at peace. Unfortunately her vibes are becoming unbearable. With all due respect, regarding Covid-19 precautions: You say that people are living in fear because they wear a mask and willing to sign up for a poison shot aka vaccine. But I think you...Read full review »

I love so many of these podcasts episodes but “test or not to test” is really speaking to me in my current moment in time. After a miscarriage, I feel called to be in a state of surrender and trust. The two week wait will end in the next couple of days but it has been a challenging time for me. I...Read full review »

If you are ever remotely curious about birth this is the place to be.
MegElisabeth1114 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/21
The creator of this content is not a true supporter of woman . She’s anti free birth and anti woman . Disgusting . Wolf In sheep’s clothing !!
braiden ianniello via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
Love love love this podcast. The variety of topics that are covered is amazing and I love how much thought is put into each podcast. It really makes you think and learn about your own journey (regardless of where you are) in a very constructive and positive way.
p odd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/21
Maryn questions modern day birth practices. With an eye on the physiological, she weighs both science and trust with a humbling amount of open-mindedness. Informative and intriguing. Maryn is a true champion of autonomy. Yay! For Indie Birth!
Tennikay via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/08/21
This podcast seems to focus a lot on negative sides of other means of birth choices and has conflicting opinions expressed. They are anti regulated care but then have a white male OB on multiple episodes. They say they promote women’s choice then shame women who choose to birth unassisted. Seems...Read full review »

Personal liberty at the expense of the health of others is reckless, selfish, and short sighted. I started listening to get some different perspectives on pregnancy and had to turn it off after 10 minutes of anti-mask soapboxing. If putting others at risk of COVID is the stated opinion, I have no...Read full review »

Maryn and the inspiring guests she hosts are simply overflowing with scientifically backed information, spiritual insights, and experiences they share - all in the name of exposing the realities of birth in today’s world, and letting the listener figure out what to do with what they hear.

Little_Mama_92 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/03/20
Used to love this podcast however, I am deeply saddened and hurt by Maryn pointing fingers at Freebirth communities and calling them dogmatic, bullying them, and essentially getting the whole point of freebirth communities wrong. I find her to be feeling quite triggered by freebirth movements and...Read full review »

Maryn connects with the audience in a way that is welcoming, radically honest, wise and compassionate.
