My name is Shannon Venus Taylor, the Founder of Venus Birth Space and Co-Founder of our sister company Soul Family Yoga. From a young age I always knew supporting people would become my life's purpose. I believe birth is a sacred space of transformation. Birth reveals the purest parts of ourselves, changing the mind, body and spirit.
Shortly after my prental yoga training, I felt inspired to take on the misson to create a space to support folks during and after their birthing journey. In my doula trainings, I personally resonate with the authentic offerings of hollistic healing practices and the overall uplifting methods for emotional and physical support created within the birth community. As an Advocate for the birthing community, I provide a sacred space of healing, support, and empowerment.
My goal in this work is holding space for birthing people in a way that encourages people to reclaim their power through physical, emotional and spirtual support. Birth work continues to inspire me as each experience is unique and expands my mind as I am exposed to the most beautiful and vunerable version of one's self.
