About Me: I first heard the term doula when I was pregnant with my fourth but dismissed the option because it sounded like one more nurse in the room. Later, when I fully understood what a doula was, I really regretted not having one. After my personal birth experiences I decided that not only would I have a doula for baby five but I also wanted to be one, I wanted to help bring education, options, respect, rights, and validation to birthing women. And I didn’t want to stop there, with birth, I wanted to continue it into the postpartum phase and even before pregnancy and after postpartum; pretty much anytime someone needed the emotional, physical, and informational support that a doula could provide while they faced things that were new, hard, different, painful, and challenging. Doula all the things!! (We all need an in-laws doula, a car shopping doula, a potty training doula…amiright!?) I retired from a decade of running a successful preschool and started my doula adventure, training as a doula while hiring the trainer to be there as my doula for my 5th birth which I decided to do at home. The birth was absolutely amazing and it solidified my desires to do this work for others.

I am a certified birth doula through DONA and CAPPA, and bereavement and adoption doula through Stillbirthday, a certified Advanced Trained Doula through the MCU, and trained through CAPPA and MCU as a postpartum doula. I am a childbirth educator and doula mentor, and labor doula trainer for CAPPA. I believe in providing highly professional and personalized services with no agenda. I SUPPORT, I do not STEER you toward decisions or methods. I work with all choices: epidural, unmedicated, induction, hospital, home, planned Cesarean, etc. I have experience with multiples, HG, high risk, PMADs, VBAC and VBAMC, fetal position, and more. I provide a full service package that includes birth photography and pampering for mom. I would love to meet with you today to explore your desires for doula support.

About Me: I am currently serving Carbon County, Emery County and Grand County. I recently graduated with my Masters in Social Work and am looking forward to serving mothers in my community with birth and postpartum support. I feel that this is what I am made to do. As a mom who has experienced postpartum depression, I had promptings to serve birthing and postpartum women, which is why I became a doula. I wanted to help them heal and reduce their risk of maternal mood disorders. After the birth of my daughter, and the trauma of placing her for adoption I feel as if I was pushed towards getting an MSW. I wanted more than anything to help women facing birth trauma. This preventing and healing from birth trauma is my favorite part of serving moms as a birth and postpartum doula. The ability to help moms find their voice with birth education, guiding them towards birth choices that matter to them and the empowerment that follows. I also offer birth processing and fear release services to my birth and postpartum doula practice. Fear Release and Birth Story Processing can help reduce your risk of maternal mood disorders and help you on your healing journey. To book a free interview and consultation call me today at 801-687-8073.

About Me: Hello! I'm a certified birth doula through Birth Arts International (BAI), and a trained Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypno-Doula (HCHD). I love working with families of all types, and have specific expertise in working with first-time parents, those experiencing pregnancy/infant loss, and families on their journey of pregnancy after loss.

I am a believer in the power of a strong support network and ground my practice in empowering birthing people to remain informed of their options, pursue the learning of evidence-based birth education, and—most importantly—feel supported in their journey. I have a passion for birth—particularly in witnessing people cast aside fear and trust in their bodies and instincts.

It is my pleasure to provide support to all birthing people, no matter their choice. Whether it be an unmedicated birth, epidural, or planned cesarean section, hospital birth, home birth, or birthing center—I support YOU in your choices.

I am a certified yoga instructor (200hr), trained prenatal yoga teacher, certified birth and bereavement doula through Stillbirthday, and currently studying to become a certified herbalist. I also completed the VBAC Advanced Doula Training through The VBAC Link.

When I'm not doulaing, you can find me chasing my boys, tending to our many house plants, and practicing yoga.

I am also happy to provide you with some precious images that will help tell your birth story as part of this doula package, at no extra cost.
(Note: If birth photography is a top priority for you, you may want to hire a separate birth photographer. I have been able to capture enough images to satisfy my clients so far, but I cannot promise that I will be able to catch every moment you may wish, as supporting you is my top priority as your doula. Still, I do my very best to pick up my camera any time other support is in place for a moment.)
