My journey to become a birth doula started before I became pregnant with my first baby. I knew that I wanted to have an un-medicated birth, and having Type 1 Diabetes would make it harder to achieve. During my research I realized that many women don’t know their options during childbirth and many don’t even realize they HAVE options. After having my eyes opened into this magical world of birth I could not close them again, nor did I want to. I want to help every woman feel empowered, supported, knowledgeable, and excited for the birth of their baby.
I am a trained, certified, and skilled professional doula in the height of my life’s passion. I am in my element when, after weeks of preparation and education, I see a woman and her partner share a secret, knowing look of shimmering emotion that shows all their hard work paid off, in one of life’s most precious moments. This moment is further enhanced for me when the woman’s partner has been encouraged and taught how to help and has been a key element in the pregnancy and labor process, without which, things may have turned out much differently. I feel very strongly about being an advisor to birthing women so they can have the birth they intend, without unnecessary interventions due to lack of knowledge or support.
My goal as a doula is simply to improve birth – by helping to reduce physical and emotional trauma, by empowering women through knowledge and practice, and to advocate for safer birth experiences led by a woman’s own body.
I have had all three of my children in the hospital: un-medicated, abdominal birth (c-section), and un-medicated VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). I believe that regardless of circumstance, all births can be beautiful. I also have personal and professional experience with high-risk pregnancy, diabetes during pregnancy, and VBACs. I can skillfully educate on things that others may not have reason to know.
I have experience helping women with un-medicated, breech, twins, VBAC, VBA2C, VBAMC, special scars, medicated, surrogacy, diabetes during pregnancy, and cesarean births.
I am a proud member and supporter of International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN), and Improving Birth.
I am also the Chapter Leader of the Weber/Davis County ICAN Chapter and serve on the board of the Utah Doula Association as Vice President.
There is no "right" way to give birth and all women should surrounded by love and support so they can have a peaceful birth day, no matter how it unfolds. Most women can have a great unmedicated birth without interventions, however, sometimes interventions are necessary and should be viewed as tools that can help you when needed.
