Mesmerized and enchanted with the miracle of life, Mari embarked on a path that would take her through the many facets of birth in America with a goal of learning as much as she could while absorbing the wisdom of the great teachers she had the privilege to study with. Landing in Los Angeles in 2006, Mari worked as an obstetrical nurse in some major hospitals. Dismayed by what she witnessed as standard of care for birthing women and knowing that there was a better way; Mari received her Master in Science in Nurse-Midwifery degree from the Midwifery Institute at Philadelphia University, so that she could offer women options and choices to birth as they pleased. She began her homebirth practice called Birthwell Los Angeles in 2011 which provides expert midwifery care and gentle birth options. She created a product line as a way to serve and educate women whom she could not work with directly. Mari seeks to further expand the "Gentle Birth Movement" which is growing exponentially in America today.

"I believe that the first step to empowered birth is to alleviate the anxiety and fear so many women experience during pregnancy and at the time they birth their babies. This can be accomplished through education, great health care and optimal support. Therefore, I have created a line of products that I believe will transform the way women feel about their bodies, pregnancy, and childbirth"-Midwife Mari

The Vision

Birthwell, as a powerful force supporting the natural birth movement, strives to educate and inspire women to choose gentle fearless childbirth. Birthwell transforms birth culture to one of empowered informed consent, safe homebirth, and supported and respectful hospital birth.

Birthwell is introducing the “MamaLove Gift Set” which is a combination of four Birthwell products (Birthwell Prenatal Yoga DVD, Midwife Mari’s Organic Pregnancy Tea, and Birthwell Affirmation Cards) as the perfect pregnancy gift option. Also available is a Nurse-Midwife created online pregnancy education series called “Midwife Monday” which is the first of its kind to fill in the gaps of knowledge in modern obstetrical care and is a must for all women seeking empowered hospital birth.
