Birth and Postpartum Doula, Hypnobabies Childbirth Educator, Certified Hypnobabies Doula, CAPPA Trained, VBAC-link Trained
Birth is my calling. From the very first birth I attended I’ve known that I would be attending women as they bring new life into this world, for the rest of my life. Birth is a sacred and spiritual event that deserves to be honored. I love working with all types of families and births. I’ve been providing birth and postpartum services for 6 years and I’ve loved every minute of it.
I’m also a Hypnobabies childbirth educator. Hypnobabies is a wonderful program that has helped thousands of women all over the globe have more calm and comfortable births.
Birth Doula, Certified Hypnobabies Child Birth Educator, Certified Hypno Doula, VBAC-link trained, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
I have a passion for childbirth! I just love it! I have four beautiful babies who all have very different births that each taught me so much. After the birth of my first baby I just knew that there had to be a better way, we have been doing this for centuries! This is when I felt the call to become a Doula and decided to become trained through DONA. I have been supporting families as a Doula for six years. We are a military family, and move often, I have served families in Southern California, North Carolina, back to California, and now we have recently moved to Utah! After having two beautiful, but very different, Hypnobabies births I decided to become a Certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Educator and Hypno Doula. I have enjoyed teaching Hypnobabies and supporting families as a Hypno Doula for about two years. Just over a year ago I had my fourth baby and third Hypno-baby, this birth went far from what I hoped for and I am learning how to blossom from it. With the different births I have had, I feel very capable of supporting families through any kind of journey they are taken on. I am also now working on becoming Certified in Placenta Encapsulation through IPPA.
Supporting women during their birthing time and guiding them through the threshold and fulfilling their destiny of becoming a mother is an absolute honor. I love being able to help couples connect during this very special time and I believe this helps both mother and partner connect on a stronger level. Birth is truly when I have witnessed the most courage, power, strength, passion, and a transformation in these beautiful women and their bodies. Ina May Gaskin said, "Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life." I know this to be true and I am ready and excited to help families here in Utah have beautiful experiences
Certified Birth doula through International Doula Institute and Trained Postpartum Doula, Registered Nurse, VBAC-Link Trained
I absolutely love the opportunity being a doula gives me to work with and help empower women! I think all mothers should be able to have a powerful birth experience and I am here to help them achieve that experience. The opportunity to do so is both a privilege and an honor for me. I have two children of my own, and experiencing two very different births of my own gave me a great desire to help women take charge of their own birth experiences, so that they come out of it feeling like the amazing, wonderful women that they are.
I am certified through the International Doula Institute. While I am new to the work of being a doula, I have been a nurse for five years and feel that through my nursing career I have developed a passion for working with people and a compassion for people in a variety of circumstances. So, whatever your situation may be, I will do all I can to serve and help you during this monumental time in your life!
