Hi, I’m Alisha Stephens
I lucked out by landing my dream job 7 years ago when I became a mom. My selfless husband and 4 beautiful children make me laugh every day. The comfort and support I received during the birth of my first baby planted a yearning in my heart to help others through the raw, miraculous moments that come when bringing a child into this world. My goal as a doula is to leave the mother feeling heard, respected, joyful, and empowered. I was blessed to receive my Advanced Doula Training from a few of Utah’s most esteemed doulas through Birth Learning. I serve in the Volunteer Doula Program at the University of Utah and have been a part of some unique birthing cases. I have a bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science and am a certified Prenatal Yoga Instructor. I have seen the incredible benefits yoga provides a pregnant and laboring woman so I offer expecting moms a complimentary prenatal yoga session if situation permits. I believe every birth is magical! Un-medicated or medicated, at home or hospital, first baby or fifth baby, every birth is a miracle. I love helping families learn they can confidently have a voice in how their birth story goes! I feel so honored to be a part of birth days and strive to protect treasured memories that will last a lifetime.
Hi, I’m Lynette Wilson
My role as a doula is to train and then assist your husband/partner to be your biggest support during birth and labor. I am a mother of eight and grandmother of six. What sets me apart from other doulas is my belief that your husband/partner should be front and center as your main birthing companion and support. I have a love and reverence for babies and birth. It is an honor for me to be invited to your birth and assist you and your husband/partner in bringing a new life into the world. My whole goal as a doula is to help you in achieving the birth experience you desire. I do this by educating you in 2-3 prenatal appointments where I help you discover what is important to you in your birth experience. I help you know what you can expect in labor and delivery, and I walk you through possible scenarios ahead of time so that you can be prepared for all possibilities in labor and birth. During these prenatal appointments I will go through a series of techniques using counter pressures, massage, and visualization. This will help get an idea of what works best for you. During birth we will then put into practice all the techniques we have prepared for. It is during labor that I am invaluable because I am able to guide your husband/partner right at the time when he/she may feel at a loss and be unsure what to do next.
A very important part of my role as a doula is to help you and your husband/partner know how to communicate questions and concerns to your health care providers in a way you will be heard and understood. It is very common for the laboring couple to forget all the ways they had practiced asking questions, and sometimes even forget that they have a right to ask questions. I never talk to the health care provider for you, but I am there to guide you in knowing what questions to ask in order to get the things you want in your labor and delivery.
I’m excited to meet with you and discuss how I can help you have the birth experience you are hoping for.
Hi, I’m Emylia Biebau
I am a doula, and I love what I do! I first became interested in Doula work during my pregnancy with my second child. Although I never hired a doula, they were always at the back of my mind. I could not believe that spending days in delivery rooms, supporting women and their loved ones through one of the most monumental days of their life, could be an actual job! After riding the high of childbirth from the birth of my daughter, I could not get doulas off my mind. I knew it was the path for me! So, I dove right in. I am certified through The International Doula Association, I have taken an Advanced Doula Training course, and attended around ten births. I’ve been told that I have a very calming presence and magic hands. That, coupled with being completely non-judgmental and supportive of all types of birth, I hope to support a wide variety of families through this incredible journey!
