My name is Taryn Clawson, I live in Murrieta and I am a childbirth and lactation educator, birth and postpartum doula and a placenta encapsulator. My journey into the birth world began back in 2009 after the birth of my third child. Friends had heard my birth stories and began to ask questions that pushed me to start researching birth. Every question I found an answer to opened up a whole new set of questions to ask. After a short time I found that I was then being invited to attend the births of friends to help support them! It quickly became evident that I needed to make my new passion official and attended birth doula classes through CAPPA. It has been a wonderful adventure ever since!
In 2010/11 I had the fantastic opportunity to take a yearlong breastfeeding course. I learned alongside some of the best nurses in our area. It was an amazing time to continue my education of the amazing relationship between mother and child. Also during that time I was breastfeeding my fourth child. It is funny how fate works sometimes. Believe it or not, after nursing a cumulative time of 5 years between my older three children, it was with my fourth that I had numerous breastfeeding struggles. From firsthand experience I understand how difficult the first few weeks with our new little ones can be.
My goal is to take the fear and unknown out of childbirth and breastfeeding. I support and celebrate each expectant couple’s journey no matter what it looks like. Birth is as unique and wonderful as the child we are bringing into the world. Through education, families learn how to achieve their own goals and desires.
I am honored to provide an education for families in the Murrieta and Temecula areas to learn how to achieve their own goals and desires. My birth services are available from San Diego to Orange County.
