Amy Anderson- Instructor and Doula Trainer
My name is Amy Anderson born and raised in Oklahoma, Go Pokes! I love a good storm, which I guess you have to when you live in Tornado Alley. I’ve lived in several other southern states but always come back to good ol’ home sweet home.
I have five littles, each of them have their own wonderfully unique birth stories. One emergency cesarean, one repeat cesarean, two hospital VBA2C’s and an HBA2C. Through my own birth journey, my passion for birth grew, so I became a birth doula in 2009. Then, seeing the need for better education before labor I decided to find a comprehensive childbirth education program, that is when I found Birth Boot Camp and I have been a Birth Boot Camp Instructor since 2012. I’m thrilled to be offering Birth Boot Camp Instructor and doula training in many different locations.
Janet Farmer – Doula Trainer
Hi, my name is Janet Farmer and I am a Birth Boot Camp Instructor, Doula, and Doula Trainer. It has been my pleasure to walk alongside families as their Birth Doula for over 25 years. I’m not sure which I love more, being an Instructor or a Doula, but they both make my heart sing. Becoming a Trainer for up and coming doulas was a long-term dream of mine and I am honored to be a part of the Birth Boot Camp family!
My passion for all things birth and babies began as it does for many in this field, through my own birth experiences. My first birth was a medicated, induction in the hospital and the last two were natural births at an out of hospital birthing center with a midwife. I am a mother to 3 amazing adult children and 10 fabulous grandchildren! Helping families find their confidence and clear the fear and confusion that often surrounds birth is especially exciting and a big part of why I do this work.
I have a quaint, small gathering place in downtown Lake Wales, FL where I hold classes, trainings, and support groups for breastfeeding and postpartum moms. I love to travel, so I hope to do some Doula trainings out of state when the opportunity arises, but for now, I hope to see you in a future workshop in Florida!
Hollie Hauptly- Doula Trainer
I first became a doula almost 8 years ago after the birth of my first child. I didn’t learn about doulas until the very end of my pregnancy, and I’m so glad that I hired one, even if it was a little last minute. It was amazing to have the support from someone whose sole focus was me, my husband, and our birth! I soon decided to become a doula and I’ve loved it ever since. I consider it a privilege to be invited into a family’s birth space to support them during this most special moment. I’ve been lucky enough to attend births of all kind and each of my clients is special to me. I first joined Birth Boot Camp as an instructor in 2013.
I wanted to teach an AMAZING childbirth class to give my doula clients the tools needed to have great births. I then attended Birth Boot Camp’s first ever doula training when the program was created. I love everything that Birth Boot Camp stands for and the community they create amongst an amazing group of women. As an experienced doula, I’ve loved working with new doulas to get them up and going in this amazing line of work! I’m always happy to offer tips, support, and mentorship to up and coming doulas that have a passion for this work. After being sought out by many new doulas, it fueled my fire to become a trainer with Birth Boot Camp Doula. I’m really excited to bring doula training to Salt Lake City and surrounding areas. If you’d like to bring a doula training to your area, just let me know.
Klarisa Kelley – Doula Trainer
Hi I’m Klarisa. I have a passion for getting families off to a great start, no matter how they envision that start. I am a Birth Boot Camp Instructor, Doula, and Doula Trainer.
I have been serving families in various capacities since 2008, first as a breastfeeding peer counselor through WIC, and then as a doula, childbirth educator, and midwifery assistant. I am currently going to nursing school, with the end goal of becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife.
My 7 wild and wonderful children keep me busy. My first three were born at the hospital, the fourth at home in my bedroom, and the last 3 in the hospital again because they were premature.
I serve doula clients in southeast Idaho (Rexburg, Rigby, Idaho Falls, Blackfoot, and Pocatello), and I also teach breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and emergency childbirth classes.
