Ep. 46: Empowering Womxn’s Innate Wisdom



In this episode of Subtle Medicine, I am joined by a truly phenomenal soul, Maryn Green of idiebirth.org.

Maryn Green has been attending women as a midwife since 2009; first as a licensed midwife and now as an independent, autonomous midwife in Sedona, Arizona. Maryn is well known for her international association, the Indie Birth Association, which serves and educates women and midwives all over the world. She has co-authored a book about Indie Birth and recorded almost 200 (and counting!) podcasts (“Taking Back Birth”) that encourage women and midwives to rethink what they have been taught, and re-connect with ancient wisdom in combination with current research and knowledge. With Margo, Maryn has co-founded the first Indie Birth Midwifery School in 2017. Maryn has been taught by witnessing hundreds of undisturbed births, the best of which have been the births of her own 10 children. Maryn enjoys spending time in the Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona, hiking with her husband, kids and dogs.

For starters, I am completely in love with all that she’s doing and could probably talk to her for hours about a million different things. In this episode, I felt called to to dive into the notion of empowering women’s choices and autonomy about their health and bodies.


Modern medicine has its place, yes, and, as a species, I feel we’re continually sterilizing and severing our connection with our innate, ancient wisdom. We’re not trusting our bodies, we’re disconnected from our intuition, we’re made to believe that we don’t know what’s best for us and have to look outside of ourselves… so much here.

Join us as Maryn shares a bit of her story, as we dive into the importance of empowering women to take their health into their hands, to sink in the beautiful “place of the unknown,” and to create a menu of options for yourself, whether in pregnancy, healing a dis-ease of the body, or painting your room! We explored the wisdom of the body, how things like the mother wound, shame, outdated beliefs, and more can prevent us from hearing our intuition, and more.
