Proudly serving Box Elder, Cache,

Weber/Davis & Salt Lake counties.

The experience of pregnancy and birth has evolved over the years, especially in northern Utah. Here at Sweet Moments Birth, based out of Brigham City, 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 8 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. 

 

Originally from New York City, I have called Utah home since late 2016. My husband and I have 6 (though I only birthed 4 myself) wonderful children. 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 then moved to a self study apprenticeship program in 2018. 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.
