Sierra has been serving women through pregnancy, birth and postpartum since 2000. Starting out as a birth and postpartum doula until she began her own family and became a mother to her first son in 2009. She knew her main focus was now on her own babies, so she shifted from being a birth doula (and on call) to education, breastfeeding and postpartum support. In her last month of pregnancy with her second and last son in 2011, she was hired to be a childbirth educator for Methodist Women's Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska. She soon gained her Lamaze Teaching certification and enjoyed working with a team of amazing educators who provided Omaha with gentle, evidence based education. They also created Omaha's first hospital based class, geared toward couples who were considering unmedicated labor and deliveries. Sierra had the honor of being on the team of educators who wrote the curriculum for and presented this class.
In 2014 Sierra's family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah to be close to the mountains as they love the outdoors. She launched Bud to Blossom, a business dedicated to educating families from pregnancy through postpartum, classes such as childbirth prep, both traditional, postpartum and sibling preparation, provide postpartum doula support, early breastfeeding support and gentle sleep consulting (she calls it--Mother Baby Sleep Support).
Her main priority is supporting families as a postpartum doula and is excited to bring the CAPPA standard to more families in Utah and the surrounding areas as a new Postpartum Doula Trainer for CAPPA.
In her free time, she loves nature camping, music, playing her 12 string guitar, singing, playing with her husband and kids, traveling and enjoying life!
