S4 EP122: Tahnee Taylor: CoFounder of SuperFeast - Homebirth + Wild Pregnancy/Freebirth/Posterior baby

On today's episode, we welcome Tahnee, a mother of two and one half of the renowned wellness brand, SuperFeast. Tahnee’s journey into motherhood intricately wove together her yoga background and her profound connection to both body and spirit. This connection led her to intuitively recognise her pregnancy, fostering an unwavering sense of trust and deepening her relationship with her body and baby during that time. Living a slow and nourishing lifestyle further enhanced her blissful pregnancy experience.

Tahnee’s positive perception of birth, which was shaped by her mother, led her to birth at home with the support of midwives. As the hormonal flow of labour unfolded, she embarked on an almost psychedelic journey, transcending reality to bring her baby girl into the world. This transformative experience awakened Tahnee’s deep appreciation for the extraordinary power of birth, while also highlighting the occasional doubts projected by the midwives, which would later influence her future birth choices.

In the years that followed, as Tahnee embraced motherhood while navigating a growing company with her husband, she desired to reconnect with her body and mind before welcoming their second child. This realisation led her to actively practice her belief in herself and the birthing process, choosing a wild pregnancy and a sovereign birth at home. Throughout her pregnancy, she and her husband navigated through any fears that arose, strengthening their bond and fostering open and honest communication.

As Tahnee’s second birth unfolded, she noted the difference in how it progressed. She found herself in a constant state of motion, exploring different positions and movements to facilitate her baby's descent. Tahnee reflects on the deep trust she had in her baby when he took a moment to land, and candidly shares the raw and authentic nature of birth, acknowledging its messiness and chaotic beauty.
