Named Birth Circle’s BEST UTAH DOULA, 2019

Kasaundra Trout utah doula.jpg

Hey there! My name is Kasaundra. In Southern California, born and raised. On the playground is where I spent most of my days…

Err. Ok. I promise not to rap anymore. Doula’s honor.

I am a mom to four beautiful kids and wife to my very own combat veteran of the United States Marines Corps. We love our life in Utah and our days are filled with the sounds of children and Ricky Ricardo moments (my half Latin blood keeps things fun). I proudly wear the title of “World’s Okayest Mom” and am passionate about helping women embrace their lives with joy and acceptance.

I enjoy both reading and writing novels, traveling with my family, singing, sarcasm, and filling my home with loved ones. I’m a serial hobbyist that is always up for a new adventure. Ask me about the time I tried fire dancing! You can learn about how I built Utah Doulas and Company by reading HERE.

I got my start in the birth world when preparing for my VBAC, following the birth of my twins. I studied everything I could get my hands on and everything I read brought me to the same conclusion: each birth was as unique as the family it affected. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the work and became a doula in 2014. I began with an apprenticeship under a local Hypnobabies instructor/doula and worked in a doula collective for a year. Within that collective, I learned from a variety of care providers, doulas, and birthing families as I experienced and assisted in each unique birth. It was a whirlwind of an experience that I am grateful for every day! I am DONA trained and am a certified Hypnodoula through The Curtis Method. I strongly believe in continuing education and have completed certifications and trainings in rebozo work, bereavement, VBAC, and lactation assistance.

I have experience with:
