Providing birth education to empowered women everywhere. It's time to take back birth.

    Witchery 101 – and Thoughts About the World

    Witchery 101 – and Thoughts About the World

    How do these two topics go together? They do! I want to share my perspective on MY reality of this virus thing and how ultimately, we need to choose each step of the way how we want to respond.

    Best way to do that? Get in touch with your own innate power and let your soul light the way. Sound too idealistic? Take a listen and let me know if you resonate with this.

    (And if you enroll in my new Witchery 101 class, let me know if there’s anything in particular you want to learn!). I can’t wait to share this new offering with you:

    Redefining Midwifery – Part 1

    Redefining Midwifery – Part 1

    After a moving update and a post-vacation summary, I’m back! I’m calling this “part 1” because I know there will be more ideas and a creative plan that come to be eventually as we settle down in our lives and I get back to birth work.

    As I share, this is the “burn it down” phase! I know what I want to change and what has not been working for me, so I ask you to reconsider too what your heart is telling you and what “midwifery” might mean to you.

    I have some ideas, and look forward to sharing more about all of this as it evolves and grows. I want and need to do this work in a way that feels more soul-led and aligned to me, and I am guessing many of you feel the same. If it’s broke, you don’t just fix it, you make something new.

    Mothering # 9: Holding Space for Our Kids on the Topic of Death

    Mothering # 9: Holding Space for Our Kids on the Topic of Death

    This may be an intense one, but is highly personal as our kids experienced the death of one of our beloved dogs recently. This is another ramble, but one about the belief systems that we have taught our kids regarding death, and also a sharing into what this has looked and felt like for different family members.

    Calling in My Ancestors

    Calling in My Ancestors

    This podcast was not what I was planning on, but it’s what happened when I started talking about asking for guidance from my (deceased) grandma and grandpa. It’s not entirely unrelated to the spirit world that we talk about when talking about spirit babies, so I thought I’d share it with you as a “creating ceremony 101” podcast. I’d love to hear your experiences, questions and comments about connecting with other beings, relatives and realities as we navigate the “real world” (or is it?!).

    A Rant About Being a Good Little Girl (AKA Midwifery Licensing)

    A Rant About Being a Good Little Girl (AKA Midwifery Licensing)

    Wow, I’m feisty in this one! After a moving update and a nice card pull to share with you, I’m off…have you ever thought about the distinct differences between how midwifery and obstetrics are viewed in the world, and how most midwives have agreed to very little autonomy?

    This is NOT a new topic for me, but I felt a renewed interest in riling all of you wanna be midwives out there into choosing authentic truth over compliance.

    What kind of world do we live in when licensed midwives are treated like ignorant children, and their clients too? I am hoping this episode inspires you to question this narrative and mostly DO SOMETHING that will further a vision for birth and midwifery that is based on power and integrity.

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 woke up with swollen feet the day after I ovulated in the cycle immediately following the loss and I feel a sense of knowing I’m pregnant. I have wanted to test for the past week but I feel as though baby is asking for me to allow more uncertainty and do less planning or trying to predict. The podcast episode helped normalize those urges and feelings that were coming up while waiting. Thank you so much for sharing your story and your truth in this journey!

Bad energy

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 are the one living in fear after all.

I can also argue that I am not afraid of the vaccine because bodies are resilient. I can also argue that I am not afraid of my own health because my body has fought and can fight COVID but I do care for the health of those at greater risk of suffering greater complications and even death. That is having real compassion and practicing it, my friend.

Maybe there are other areas of your life and in your past, where your fear has manifested. I am so certainly glad that you have found a new home for your family. I truly wish you the best Maryn and just really hope that you can sort out your fears.

What is this?

This woman is doing a lot of rambling, besides that factor...the audio quality is awful.
I don’t recommend. Myran is just a Privileged white women who once again tries to victimize herself. Sorry no ones gonna give you a free house. Edit: she’s a weird hippie b#tch
