I'm Christine

I am a medical social worker turned doula with a master’s degree in social work and a bachelor’s degree in psychology. My passion for birth and mothering came in 2015 when I did a rotation through labor and delivery in a new hospital in the Salt Lake Valley. Since that time, I have attended workshops and training courses focusing on health, wellness, and comforting measures during pregnancy and labor. As a natural born advocate, my goal as your doula is to help you achieve the birth experience you dream of having and to provide you with information and resources during your pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum period. The following are a few skill sets that set me apart as a doula: I have extensive working experience with both trauma and postpartum depression and feel comfortable helping women if or when these issues arise. I have spent six years living overseas and have the utmost cultural sensitivity. Also, I am proficient in American Sign Language, which has been a really positive part of my life. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your partner to discuss how I can be of help during this transformative time for you and your family.
