Hi my name is Meagan Heaton and I am a Salt Lake City doula including its surrounding areas (Utah/Davis County, Park City, and Tooele).

My whole life I’ve had a deep passion for babies and dreamed of being a labor and delivery nurse for years. I have always felt the desire to help women and infants. After I got pregnant with my first child I became even more aware of just how in love I was with not only babies, but with pregnancy, labor, child birth and everything that comes after.

My first two children were born via cesarean section. Going into the second pregnancy I had an ending goal of a VBAC. My nurse was also a doula and her and I chatted all about doula’s and their roles in a birth setting. She was so wonderful, and I was grateful that she was present for most of my birth. After the birth of my second daughter that ended in a repeat C-SectionI learned more about the importance of a doula in all types of birth plans. It was soon after that I realized that I really wanted to become a birth doula. I have learned so much along my journey and I can’t wait to keep learning. Since then I had my third child and was able to achieve a vaginal birth after two cesareans and it was INCREDIBlE! (feel free to read more about that HERE)

Hi my name is Melinda Hudnall. I am a local doula serving Salt Lake city including Utah/Davis, Summit & Tooele County. 

The birth of my second child ignited my passion for this work and since then I have been on such an incredible journey. It wasn’t until I had an amazing support team by my side through prenatal care and birth that I realized the importance of a doula. Feel free to read more about my birth experiences HERE. I am an advocate for evidence based birth and strive to help others make informed choices for them and their families. Before starting into birth work I graduated and worked in the field of radiology for seven years. I am grateful for that time I worked in the hospital, as it has given me many insights into how our healthcare system works.

In 2014 I completed my birth doula training with DONA International. (Doulas of Northern America) and since then have become a certified doula with them. I have also been certified to teach a childbirth education course called Hypnobabies. I have also been trained in Hypnobirthing and Rebozo Techniques. In addition I completed the advanced doula training through the Midwives College of Utah where I had in depth training on various topics such as: high-risk and complicated Pregnancies, how to support a survivor of past abuse, VBAC’s (vaginal birth after cesarean), multiples, and breastfeeding classes taught by an IBCLC (international board certified lactation consultant). My husband and I live in South Jordan Utah and have three beautiful boys and a fur baby. I enjoy date nights with my hubby, going on hikes, being outdoors with my boys, practicing yoga, reading birth/parenting books, spending time with family and friends and eating any kind of dark chocolate.
