Hi, I'm Mary.
I’m an advanced doula certified through the Midwives College of Utah. The mothers I’ve attended in Utah & Ghana amaze me. I rejoice in lifting families through hands-on prenatal education, continuous emotional & physical labor support, and postpartum reinforcement.
Your birth experience matters. It shapes you and your story. I believe in your strength as a woman and your influence as a mother to change the world.
Hi there! I am a DONA trained birth doula and have also been working to help people through injuries and chronic pain as a professional massage therapist for over 12 years now. Encouraging self care and educating on balance are a big part of what I do to support women. I gained a passion for birth while making birth plans and creating roles for my own birth team during the birthing chapter of my life with my four cherubs and was able to birth in various settings.
I believe a woman should strive to have the birth experience she desires through a well thought out birth plan and a unified birth team. Though things don't always go just as planned, having one is very empowering. The strength of a unified couple is not to be diminished; I have really appreciated the births I have been in where the partner is a strong presence during the birth. The love and chemistry they share is a beautiful thing to witness!
Susie is the newest member of Utah County Doulas, and we are thrilled to welcome her!
And I'm Sara!
During my first (twin!) pregnancy, I had a lot of questions, but wasn't always sure who to ask. That pregnancy and birth had several complications, and I'm so grateful that, in the end, all three of us were healthy and well. But looking back, I realize that I would have benefited from more emotional, physical, and informational support during my pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum time. I became a doula so that I can be that support for others!
The VBAC birth of my son was indescribably transformative and empowering. I discovered my life-giving strength and fell in love with birth! I look forward to being by your side as you do the same.
