This Year's Theme iS
Our conferences so far have been largely "in the box" structure wise (not so much content wise!), so this time around we are doing things differently, and bringing you an experience that will be even more impactful. We are getting OUT of the conference room and into the woods. Our main sessions will be deeper, more radical, more heart opening, and will be interspersed with experiences designed to connect you to the like-hearted women around you. We will eat together, sleep together (in bunkhouses), and work together to move midwifery into the new paradigm.
We will sit in circle and have big conversations, since we need to work together if we are going to make things move. We will definitely hit the sauna. Indie Birth invites you to come and inhabit the center of your own spiral, contributing your own wisdom to the weekend and co-creating something truly special. We want this weekend to be a practice in living the wise woman model so that you can go back to your communities stronger, wiser, and with even clearer vision so that you can make some serious changes.
The Role of Intuition in Midwifery; DivorciNg Ourselves from the System; All About Postpartum Blood Loss; DIY Prenatal Care; Strategies for Effective Activism; Tools for Deep Inner Work; Exploring the Cultural Construction of the Body; Honoring Our Cycles; Badass Birth Business; Branding and Harnessing Social Media Power; A New Approach to the Postpartum Year, and more...

Building the Movement Together
We can't do this alone, and neither can you. In efforts to make this easier on the planners, we are doing the registration process differently this year, too. We have a minimum number of registrants we need in order to make this happen and we need to meet that goal by the end of 2017. We want you to feel a sense of responsibility, too in helping us gather together the people that NEED to be at this event. **If we don't reach our minimum by the December 31st, 2017, we will postpone the event and refund registration fees.
