Hi! My name is Kayte Gardner and I am a Birth Boot Camp certified doula and childbirth educator. I became passionate about birth after the birth of my son. This little boy has taught me so much! He taught me that I am capable of giving birth, that my body is incredible, the value of birth education, and he inspired me to get more education myself. Out of that education grew a real desire to help women learn about their bodies, their options during birth, and to support them during that process. For more information on my doula journey check out my blog (my-birth-journey.html)
I grew up in Oklahoma City and I studied sociology at Oklahoma State University (go pokes!). There I met and fell in love with my wonderful husband. We moved to Utah shortly after getting married. I've held many jobs in my life, but the ones I have found most fulfilling are the ones where I feel like I am serving and supporting others. Before I was a doula I worked at a residential treatment center for teenage girls and I truly loved it and I love the young women that I was privileged enough to get to know.
My greatest hope as a doula is for every woman to have an amazing birth. I think an amazing birth can be medicated, unmedicated, vaginal, cesarian, at home, the hospital, a birth center, or in the woods. The one thing that all amazing births have in common is that the parents feel supported and empowered in their choices. It is my belief that the best way to have that at your birth is to have a great doula and a great childbirth education class. I would love to be a part of your birth team.
I am excited to be part of your birth team!
