About Angie Taylor
Envisioning a world where every tiny human is born knowing they are wanted, loved, respected, and safe with all other human beings. To make this a reality, I...
- inspire expectant women to listen, trust, and surrender to their inner wisdom. (Sadly, no, not all midwives know how to do this.)
- encourage expectant women to have families that create life balance using the Oola Lifestyle Framework as their foundation. CLICK HERE to learn more.
- educate expectant women on how to use emotional healing and mindset techniques to bring confidence to their decision making process. CLICK HERE to learn more.
- support expectant women as they take responsibility for the choices they make while navigating all their options to create the best possible outcome for their unique situation.
Over my almost 20 years supporting pregnant, birthing, and breastfeeding women, I've discovered some gaps that when filled bring peace to my clients.
I don't just focus on the phase of life. I focus on...
- the woman and her family.
- her relationship with her lover.
- her relationship with herself.
- her emotional and mental well-being.
- her needs, wants, and desires.
- what's been missing from her previous experiences.
- supporting her in truly processing what she's experienced during the birthing process.
I build a relationship with her that promotes the flow of oxytocin. Together we clear away as much emotional and mental wounds as possible during the pregnancy so oxytocin can flow freely and she can experience the birth that belongs to her and her tiny human. She leaves her experience with tools she can use for the rest of her life for herself and every member of her family.
I care about every aspect of her life and protect her inalienable right to birth where and with whomever she chooses. This is the role of a truly "with woman" midwife.
In short, I inspire, encourage, educate, and support expectant women who are seeking to experience unhindered, undistirbed, physiologic birth as well as heal past emotional wounds, while creating life balance for herself and her family.
I've listened as my clients have questioned their inner knowing. I've discovered that listening, trusting, and surrendering to intuition is the single most important thing we can do to bring peace of mind to every choice and decision we make.
The trick seems to be differentiating intuition from fear, doubt, shame, guilt, and the human desire to never make a mistake while also maintaining personal autonomy.
Together we explore how to know with certainty that intuition is what is being heard, trusted, and surrendered to instead of life patterns that have been created to play it safe.
I am a whole-istic motherhood consultant.
Angie is a homeschooling mother of 9 with a vocal range of baritone to first soprano who is addicted to dark chocolate and pepperoni pizza. She has earned two degrees with highest honors in Natural Health while homeschooling her children. She is a Dr. of Natural Health, as well as a whole-istic motherhood consultant.
Angie gave birth to her first child in October 1988 and experienced for the first time in her adult life someone outside herself disconnecting her from her inner wisdom, also known as intuition. She fought back and was able to prove that she was right; food, hydration, and rest was all she needed in order for the birthing process to begin.
In 2003, a little more than a year after the birth of her fifth child, she became a La Leche League (LLL) Leader and began her journey into the darkness that plagues women around the world. It was as a LLL Leader that she discovered the breastfeeding challenges being experienced by women all had their foundation in the type of birth experienced. She served her community as a LLL Leader for 9 years before becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2011. She retired from LLL in 2012 when her family moved to Mexico for an extended work assignment for her husband.
In 2005, eight months after giving birth to her sixth child, Angie became a Bradley Method instructor and birth doula. She began holding childbirth classes in her home and offering her birth doula services to her students. Her childbirth education and birth doula business grew rapidly as word spread there was someone teaching and supporting women in birth who had "lots of personal experience."
Angie supported 40 couples during the birth process in her first year as a birth doula with her seventh baby and a mother's helper by her side. Her students learned more than they expected to learn while they also watched her breastfeed and lovingly tend to older children while teaching and supporting them through the birth process. One expectant father shared how her class was "college level material."
In 2006, Angie and her family started their wholistic journey when they were introduced to essential oils by one of her childbirth students. This led Angie to begin searching for the right wholistic degree program to learn more about what had just been opened up to her. Angie enrolled in Clayton College of Natural Health and is among the last group of students to graduate prior to it closing in 2011.
By 2009, Angie and her family had moved to another state where she also taught childbirth education and offered her birth doula services. It was at this time that she discovered she could no longer be complicit in another woman's traumatizing experience and walked away from childbirth education and birth doula work with the desire to become a home birth midwife. She believed it would be the only way for her to guarantee that women - at least the women and families she would serve - would experience birth as the uplifting and relationship strengthening process she knew it to be. At this time, she started writing her own childbirth education course.
During this same time, she became a Life Coach while also completing two degrees in Natural Health; Bachelor's in Natural Health Studies and Doctor of Natural Health. Her studies taught her much about nutrition and how government entities were blocking life giving information because it interfered with the financial bottom line of large pharmaceutical companies.
Angie served women as a traditional and independent home birth midwife from 2014 to 2019. During this time, she discovered that birth was no longer being taught in any formal midwifery training program. She coined the phrase "man-made baby delivery system" when she realized that women could no longer just hire a midwife and have an amazing, unhindered birth at home. It was also at this time that she acknowledged that birth was being blamed when things went "wrong" in the hospital, birth center, and far too many home births because no one really knew or understood unhindered birth anymore. The separation of woman from intuition had created a dependence in women as they searched for the one person who would "make" birth a safe experience.
Angie became a Holistic Alternative Psychology Master in 2015 to further support her clients as they heal from past emotional experiences as well as maintain a sense of mental and emotional well-being.
In June 2021, Angie completed Oola Life Coaching training. She completed Oola Green Gap Coach training in July of the same year. Oola is a proven lifestyle framework that Angie has been known to use along side the wholistic childbirth education course she wrote to encourage finding balance in an unbalanced world while also preparing to bring a new tiny human into the world.
As Angie steps back into birth as an Independent Midwife, her clients seek her out because they have an innate knowing that they (1) don't "need" anyone to "make" birth a safe experience, and (2) have the desire to learn the truth about birth from an experienced birther. As a midwife, Angie offers truly autonomous, trauma-informed and woman-directed care.
Angie inspires, encourages, educates, and supports expectant women who are seeking to experience unhindered, undisturbed, physiologic birth as well as release negative garbage left behind by a variety of life events while also creating life balance.
Think of Angie as your Fairy GodMentor because she just might be the only person you've had believe in you.
