Candida Taveras utah doulas and company headshot.png

I’m Candida Taveras and I live in Salt Lake City with my family. I am a Doula and birth videographer serving Salt Lake County in both English and Spanish.

Before becoming a Doula, my life was completely dedicated to the world of documentary film for over 8 years. That changed in 2015 when I accepted a job working with toddlers and infants. That job turned into a passion, and after having my own child I decided that it was time for me to become a Doula.  A few weeks after giving birth, I took the first opportunity I could find and trained with Genesis Birth Company to become a Birth Doula in 2017. Since then, I have combined my passions and have never been happier!

I believe that every woman knows what’s best for her body. All births are beautiful and I am here to support you and help you have the birth experience that you want. As a Women of Color, my mission is to empower brown, black, and indigenous women through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Along with birth and videography services, I can also help you live a more sustainable life by offering cloth diapering classes. I believe that it is important for us to take care of Mother Gaia while bringing life onto her.
