Meet the Doulas


Kylee

Owner of Utah Valley Doulas

Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula and Placenta Encapsulation Specialist

the doulas kylee

Through Kylee’s own pregnancy, she learned just how much she didn’t know about pregnancy and birth. Unfortunately, her birth experience did not leave her with a strong sense of self-actualization or empowerment. She knew in her heart that the experience was meant to be one of great beauty, joy, and of course, strength. This led her to dig deep into the research that surrounded birth. Through this research, Kylee stumbled across the topic of doulas.

Doula: Someone who supports another person through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.

Kylee knew right then that becoming a doula was her calling in this life. She immediately began to immerse her passionate self into all things relating to pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Kylee’s trainings and certifications include:

  • Birth Doula Certification
  • Postpartum Doula Certification
  • Placenta Encapsulation Specialist Certification
  • Hypnobabies Certified Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor
  • NRP Certification for birth assistants
  • VBAC Link Advanced Doula Training
  • Birth Arts International Lactation Educator Training
  • Bloodborne Pathogens for Placenta Encapsulation Professionals Certification

Kylee continually reminds her clients to exercise their autonomy throughout their pregnancy and birth journeys.

Kylee, her husband, Gerardo, and their daughter Hazel reside in Utah County. When not busy supporting clients, Kylee loves to camp, travel, bake, and cook.

Rachelle is a certified postpartum doula and certified lactation counselor. As mother of 3 and as a military wife, she is familiar with many of the struggles that can come with birth and early postpartum. Her passion for pregnancy, birth and postpartum care began with her own struggles with breastfeeding. Finally finding success with nursing her third child through 12 months and beyond led to Rachelle certifying as a lactation counselor. That training led to further interest in becoming more involved with the postpartum period. She then went on to certify in postpartum doula care, which is another step towards her long term goals to add prenatal, postpartum and infant massage to her list of services. As a military wife she has felt the isolation and disconnect that can come during early postpartum, and she wants to support others during that time, as well as work to build community for those facing the big life change that is parenthood. 

Rachelle has wanted to be a mother since she was little and in her free time loves to adventure with her children and husband. She loves getting outdoors for hikes or just trips to the park, lake days, watching her kids pick up winter sports, coffee/hot cocoa dates with her littles and travel, travel, travel whenever time and finances allow.
