Proudly serving Box Elder, Cache,
and Weber/Davis counties.
Pregnancy and birth is an experience that has evolved over the years, especially in northern Utah. Here at Sweet Moments Birth, based out of Cache and Box Elder counties, we believe that families should be able to choose where and how they birth, that caring and sensitive, yet empowering and knowledgeable support during this life changing time is invaluable, and that is what we strive to provide every time. We see each experience as unique and special, just like the families we serve, and we feel honored to be able to be a part of these sweet moments.
I have been involved in my local birth community for 10 years and in the medical community for 18+ years. I am an actively practicing licensed midwife (LDEM) and certified professional midwife (CPM) in the state of Utah. I am also a CNA (certified nursing assistant of 18+ yrs) and a Certified Phlebotomist (18+ yrs).
I am the lucky mother to 4 amazing children, two of which were born out of hospital, underwater- one in my home and the other in a birth center. I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have had getting to know and see first hand what our bodies are capable of doing naturally during labor and birth, and the beautiful differences that come along with each birth experience.
I have loved being a midwife and having the opportunity to give new and different options to families in my area. I am always in total awe every time I witness these miracles that come earth side. I truly find the greatest joy in helping people realize their power in birth. I feel so blessed to be a part of these sacred life changing moments for families.

I believe that birth matters. I believe how we birth matters, and most of all, I believe that nobody but you gets to decide what their perfect birth looks like. The only thing I care about is that you feel supported in the decisions that you have made. This will be a moment in time that you will never forget for the rest of your life, and it is an honor to play a small part in it.
Also a home birthing mama, and originally from New York City, I have called Utah home since late 2016. My husband and I have 8 wonderful children together. We have an awesome blended family, and while there is a whole lot of crazy, there is also a whole lot of love.
My passion for birth work started back when I was pregnant with my first baby. I dove head first into reading and felt drawn towards natural birth and doing things in a holistic way. I became a doula in 2011, and a lactation peer counselor in 2013. After attending births for a few years in that capacity, most in the hospital, I realized that was not my final destination on this journey. I started midwifery school at Midwives College of Utah in 2015, and have been a practicing midwife since 2020. I have loved every minute of getting to experience the joy right alongside families as they grow. I am truly in awe that I get to do this work.

Childbirth has been important to me for as long as I can remember. As the daughter of a natural childbirth teacher, and big sister to two homebirthed babies, I’ve always had the sense that birth was one of the most awesome and significant things that could happen in life. The births of my own six children further taught me that it really matters who is with us when we birth—that our personal desires and philosophy, the birthplace, and those we choose to support us must work in harmony to create the optimal environment for a safe, loving and empowering birth experience. I was blessed to have midwives support me in birthing the way that I felt was best, and I’m so glad to be able to pay this forward.
I officially began my training in 2018 in a self-paced midwifery course, and then joined Sweet Moments Birth in 2020, adding hands-on training and experience to my coursework. I’ve been able to get to know, witness and support some of the most amazing people, and watch them tap into deep reservoirs of strength and intuition as they grow, birth, and parent their babies. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to help offer excellent comprehensive, personalized, and holistic midwifery care to the families in our community.
