Taryn is a birth doula, prenatal meditation teacher, and the co-founder of Awakened Feminine, an international women’s movement that helps women connect to their deep femininity and inner power, live in a full expression of themselves, and make authentic rich connections to other women. Her work around birthing, known as Awakened Pregnancy, supports women with the emotional and spiritual journey of pregnancy and birth. Taryn sees the entry into motherhood as one of the most potent and transformative times in a woman’s experience. Awakened Pregnancy honors this and helps women move through their pregnancy by placing them in the “driver’s seat” of their experience.
Taryn brings this knowledge and approach to serve all of her birth clients in a deep and full way to help ensure a sacred experience of birth. She also offers Awakened Pregnancy classes and private sessions to prepare the heart and mind for childbirth and motherhood. Taryn’s partner, David, is a meditation teacher and author who specializes in supporting men on their path to conscious fatherhood. David works during the prenatal time to help men to best support expectant mothers and offers post natal support for all of the challenges that men face with a new baby in the home.
