Hi, I’m Rachel Holm
I first learned what a doula was in 2008 when my cousin had one for her birth. I became fascinated and the seed of becoming a doula was planted. It wasn’t until after the birth of my own child in 2016 that I decided to pursue the dream of becoming a doula.
I am currently working on my DONA birth doula certification. After taking a postpartum doula class in 2017, however, I also discovered a passion for mothering the mother after her pregnancy and birth, letting her take time for herself to heal and process what she has accomplished and embrace this amazing phase of her life.
I am also currently working on my Advanced Doula Training through the Midwives College of Utah.
Hi, I’m Jade Johnson
While working as a preschool teacher, a love for helping and nurturing became my life. I’ve always been drawn to pregnancy and birth and knew I needed a job in the field. After knowing many women who had a less than ideal birth experiences I started looking for a way I could help change that. Becoming a doula was the best fit for me. To me a doula is someone who is mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually supportive to the birthing mother and her partner. My goal is to help the mother and partner throughout labor and help them be as comfortable and confident as possible. I love being able to be present and helpful in these life-changing moments and know I did my best to make it a great experience for everyone involved. Birth never goes as planned but you can be comfortable in knowing you had choices and you did everything you could do. I am currently taking classes and working towards my DONA certification and becoming a Certified Advanced Doula through the Midwives college of Utah. Your birth is your birth and I would love to help you have an amazing experience that is all your own.
Hi, I’m Melinda Hull
I am a Hypnobabies childbirth educator and DONA trained doula. The birth of my second child ignited a passion and has lead me to becoming qualified to help families and couples on their own journey into parenthood. I am an advocate for evidence-based birth and strive to help others make informed choices for them and their families. My sister and I work as doula partners. Before The Birth Sisters came to be I graduated and worked in the field of Radiology for 7 years. My husband I reside in American Fork Utah and have 3 beautiful boys. I enjoy going on hikes with her boys, yoga, reading birth/parenting books, spending time with family and friends, and eating any kind of dark chocolate.
Hi, I’m Janine Wandell
Raising a family of seven children and being a military wife of twenty-five years has given me a wide range of experiences and love of diversity. After attending the DONA Doula training I grew to appreciate the love and dedication that women can have to other women in the life changing experience of childbirth. Pregnancy and childbirth is a transformative experience that can influence families for generations. As a doula I can help women and their partners to achieve this transformation and have a positive journey. This has led me to work towards my DONA certification and my advanced Doula certification through Birth Learning.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Science and I am continuing my education in medical laboratory science. I currently work part-time at Primary Children’s Hospital in the microbiology department. I greatly love working in the laboratory but my passion is working and serving women. I am dedicated to serve and to educate about the beautiful and natural experience of childbirth. I love the midwifery model of care and hope I can continue my education, attend Physician Assistant School and work in Obstetrics to apply that passion and love that working as a Doula has taught me.
