Learn about how she built Utah Doulas and Company by reading HERE.
Kasaundra got her start in the birth world when preparing for her VBAC, following the birth of her twins. She learned that birth was something to embrace as a unique part of each family’s story. She then proceeded to dive into doula work in 2014. She began with an apprenticeship under a local Hypnobabies instructor/doula and worked in a doula collective for a year. Within that collective, she learned from a variety of care providers, doulas, and birthing families as she experienced and assisted in each unique birth. She is DONA trained and is a certified Hypnodoula through The Curtis Method. Kasaundra strongly believes in continuing education and has completed certifications and trainings in rebozo work, bereavement, VBAC, and lactation assistance.
She has experience with:
VBAC(vaginal birth after cesarean)
postpartum mental health
She is passionate about birth being an opportunity for a family to write their own love story. She is a member of the Braid Community and Utah Women’s Networking Group and is both a doula trainer and doula business mentor. She has been a featured guest speaker at both the Empowering Fearless Birth Event and Utah Mama Latina. Her volunteer work includes co-secretary of the Utah Doula Association, Vice President of Utah Valley’s Moms of Multiples club, the Empowering Fearless Birth non-profit, and organizing drives/fundraisers for homeless veterans, food banks, and hurricane victims.
