About Marie


Hi!  I’m Marie, and I would love to help you have a great birth.  I’d also like to introduce myself.  First and foremost, I am a mother.  I have 4 beautiful children who fill my life with love, joy, and absolute chaos!  I love supporting them as they learn and grow, just as I love supporting my clients through their journey to parenthood.

Since I was a young girl I have been fascinated with childbirth, and loved hearing the birth stories of the women around me.  While studying Music Therapy at Utah State University, I read an article on Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth.  I knew I had found my calling in life!  Before graduating college or having a child of my own, I became a birth-doula through Doulas of North America. After earning my degree I spent an additional two years specializing in Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth.  I love combining my love of music with childbirth, and have seen it work consistently.

When I am not busy supporting others, I am enjoying the love and support I receive from my husband, Todd.  Together we enjoy discussing books and current events, hiking, and biking.  But most nights we just cuddle on the couch and watch Netflix!

Please contact me for a free consultation.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Marie 🙂
