I believe the key to an amazing birthing experience is an atmosphere in which you feel in control and your desires are respected. I feel confident in my ability to create that atmosphere for each woman regardless of her birth preferences.
I cannot even begin to express how much I enjoy the work of being a doula and I am proud to be a board member for the Utah Doula Association.
A little history about me– I am a mother to three children and I love the miracle of new life. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelors in Home and Family Living. While at BYU I had two of my children naturally. My first was born in a hospital and my second was born in a birthing center under the care of competent and helpful midwives.
For me, the birthing center was a more positive experience because of the individual care I received from a devoted staff. Afterwards, I knew I wanted to help others have a similarly wonderful birth experience, especially those birthing in a hospital where the staff doesn’t always have the time to devote such personal attention to every woman. A doula helps to bridge that gap by providing an intimate and dedicated support figure to help guide you and your family through the special experience of birthing your baby.
I would love to provide you with the mental and emotional support you need to have amazing memories of your labor and delivery.
When I’m not busy helping other mothers have positive birth experiences, I spend my time taking care of my adorable toe heads. I enjoy singing and even minored in Music (contemporary vocal.) I enjoy dancing but definitely don’t have the amazing abilities of other Hightower name bearing woman!
I am passionate about birthing women and always eager to keep up with the latest information and statistics.
