    The Tongue Tie Episode

    The Tongue Tie Episode

    To revise or not to revise? Tongue ties and newborns just go together, right? Is this condition over diagnosed, or not? And what are the reasons to revise or leave the baby’s mouth intact? I share my experience and my own questions and really just encourage you to dig deeper on this one.

    When I Cancelled NARM (and the CPM Credential)

    When I Cancelled NARM (and the CPM Credential)

    It’s a big one! But first…I almost can’t believe I wanted to talk about the recent “reproductive rights” news, but yet I could not hold back and needed to speak my truth. So, listen at your own risk!

    Then, it’s on to more controversial stuff as I share how and why I am giving back the CPM credential. It is time for me to move forward in all of my integrity, and I realized humbly that this piece does not fit me any longer.

Bold Balance!

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!

Love it!

I love this podcast! I’m pregnant with my fourth baby and although I’ve already had three wonderful all natural births I find it so helpful and encouraging listening to these!

Hypocritical

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 like a not well thought out approach. A lot of Maryn’s opinions conflict with each other making her not such a trustworthy source to listen to. There seems to be a lot of bitterness underlying in a lot of her messages. A personal vendetta over advocating for women.
