Get to Know Our Doulas

Hi, I'm Courtney

I'm a birth and postpartum doula, offer herbal support, and do placenta encapsulation in the Utah County, Salt Lake County, and Wasatch County areas.

I fell in love with birth at age 15, I was in a child development class and we had a labor and delivery nurse come in and talk to us on 3 different occasions. Something about each of her visits was all encaptivating and alluring to me. I was bit by the birth bug and have dreamt of working in the field ever since. For some years, it seemed like nothing more than a daydream, because I doubted I could make it through nursing school (and I now know that I was never supposed to be an L&D nurse working for the hospital system). When I found out what a doula was, it was like the stars aligned. I immediately knew I would be one someday. Looking back, I realize that what I experienced in that class was a deep remembering. I don’t believe that birth work is a choice one makes, but instead it is a calling woven deep within our bones and souls.

I was born with very strong maternal instincts, and have always looked forward to being a mother myself someday. I like to joke that I’m a professional nurturer. I have been a nanny for 9 years, nurturing other people’s children, and now I also get to nurture mothers as they undergo the life changing experience that is birth. And that is really how I view doula work, it is the holding and nurturing of women.

I believe birth to be a sacred ceremony. It is a right of passage, and an initiation into motherhood. Birth isn’t just about making babies, it’s also about making mothers. Birth is the ultimate psychedelic experience, it will crack you wide open and mirror to you all that you are. It will reveal to you your wounds, and your power, and all that you hold inside of you. When we accept physiological birth and claim it as our birthright, it will transform us into the mothers we are meant to be. Birth is an opportunity to meet the most powerful, unapologetic, alive, and primal version of yourself. Peace on earth begins with birth. I believe how we choose to birth, and how our children are born matters and makes a difference. It is such an honor to witness women and hold space for them as they tune into the innate wisdom that is woven in their DNA, step into the birth portal, and do the sacred work to bring their babies earthside.

Women birthing in power and dignity will change the world.

What I'll Bring to Your Birth Journey

It is said that women in labor leave their bodies and travel to the stars to collect the souls of their children and return to the world together.

As I enter your birth space I bring with me a calm, grounding presence and soft feminine energy. My role as your doula is not just to provide physical nurturing, but to provide energetic nurturing as well. I hold the energy of the room, maintaining its safety and reverence, offering you the freedom to turn inward and embrace the quiet strength within.

I am trained in reiki and bring this skillset to your birth. I offer energy work on you & the room as needed throughout the labor and delivery process.

“We have a secret in our culture, and it’s not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.”
