What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a mummy!!
Not only did my dreams come true, it has now gone to another level.
I have been blessed with three energized boy’s named Jack, Max and Ben and now I would like to introduce my other baby - BirthCoach. Come in and make yourself comfortable, I am looking forward to hearing your journey, sharing our intuitive wisdom and learning and growing together.
My mother was 21 years old, alone and single, she went on to give birth naturally using all the intuitive resources she had within her. With all the emotions she would have been going through, we both went on a birth journey and against all odds I entered the world naturally filled with oxytocin, the hormone of love. All my mum knew was that she loved me and I was her world and she couldn’t wait to meet me. Had fear been overcome by love or had fear not even been present in her belief system? How had this affected my belief system about birth?
My mum re-married, and gave birth to my two sisters in 1996 & 1999. I experienced nature’s gift in all it’s glory as a birth support person for my Mum. I watched in amazement as my sister’s head crowned and the beauty and power that came from within my mother. My perception of birth at 18 embedded another memory that birth was an amazing natural experience and one day I would be able to experience that power too.
In 2001, I met my soul mate, my best friend and my rock on the internet. Brad and I got married 5 years after we met and then in 2008 we became pregnant with our first child. A new and exciting journey was unfolding, how could I have my dream birth?
I researched,I googled and read everything I could. I made a choice to stop listening to the horror birth stories and after attending prenatal classes at the hospital and heard the statistics for epidurals,drugs and caesarean’s on the Northern Beaches, I was shocked that we were the only couple in our class who wanted to birth naturally and make an informed choice and give our baby the best and safest journey possible.
My Birth Journey Ideal’s
These words are exactly what I searched for when I became pregnant in 2008, google found my answer in 18 seconds and led me to the Calmbirth website. It was the answer to my birth plans. I was so excited and ready to go on this journey.
Calmbirth not only gave me tools and resources for pregnancy and birth, it gave me life skills I still use everyday.
After the Calmbirth classes Brad commented to our teacher that “Although the prenatal classes we had attended were ok, Calmbirth gave me a clear defined role as a birth support partner and new resources and tools to assist Taryn during labour”
I have been blessed with three beautiful & empowered Calmbirth’s. I breathed and visualized throughout my waves which I experienced intense pressure (not pain), trusting the process and letting it unfold and when it came to birth our baby I called the midwife and both times she had to examine me as I had been so calm and quiet throughout labour. I would continue to fall pregnant just so I could experience the most amazing, oxytocin fueled, ecstatic miracle moment when you gaze into your creation’s eyes when time seems to stop and there is LOVE, WARMTH and CONNECTION. Truly one of life’s best experiences!
After the birth of my second son Max, my journey unfolded in a different path than I had planned or perhaps I allowed it to happen with my choices. Each and every journey is unique, being aware of what is going on, how it’s unfolding and the lesson’s behind it.
My son Max woke screaming every 45 min throughout the night for the first 6 months of his life. He was in pain and I wanted to take it away. One clinic suggested I let him cry it out - it will get better after a few days!! My motherly instinct and intuition were telling me something completely different. After several GP’s, osteopath, chiropractor and onto my 4th peadiatrician (thank you Julie Haas, you are an angel sent from heaven) we discovered Max had severe reflux, dairy and soy allergies.My hubby and I were exhausted and I spent many days crying, not leaving the house, living on sugary sweets (I couldn’t have chocolate!) and feeling like there was no light at the end of the tunnel.
Even with the tools I had learned with Calmbirth I was not prepared for my body to go into Adrenal Exhaustion and Insulin resistance and negative beliefs and emotional thoughts that I had failed as a parent. What type of environment was I creating for my family? What had I done to my body? My kids were taking on my negative emotions and stress and it was not part of my dream journey. My body was giving me signs, this was my wake up call. If i didn’t start making changes and looking after myself what good was I to anyone! My family needed me and I was not going to marinate myself in negativity.
Most of us unavoidably acquire limiting or self sabotaging beliefs that were downloaded into our subconscious minds when we were children.
Brad suggested I go see Pip McKay a pioneer in the field of personal development and NLP that had trained him in NLP and Business Matrix who was very successful and got results. I didn’t want to put anymore emotional strain on my family - I was exhausted and on an emotional rollercoaster and the time had come for change. Pip helped me discover who I was and who I wanted to become using NLP and her creation - Matrix Therapies and shared her own journey and knowledge. The techniques Pip used were so profound with amazing results that I wanted to learn everything I could and be able to help others in the same way.
My transformational journey began, I discovered that I need to love myself inside and out, fuel my body with the best quality choices, I changed careers, I found my passion and purpose in life, I became an NLP and Master Practitioner and Matrix Therapy Coach, certified Doula , Family day carer and Calmbirth Practitioner.
With everything I have learnt I want to make the best choices to move forward,I want to listen and learn from your experiences, share my knowledge so that we can grow together and be who we were born to be. We all deserve the best that life has to offer.
Hope to meet you soon
