Danielle and Amuri are our Midwives. Sarah is our Senior Student Midwife & Anastasia and Mindy are our other Student Midwives.
Well trained in maternal and infant care, we all make sure you and your baby are well taken care of during your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.
Our staff is specifically trained in pregnancy, birth, postpartum and newborn care. Each staff member has different levels of skill to combine into a beautiful birth support “dance” for each client.
We are all certified in newborn resuscitation and CPR. We carry vital supplies, so that we are able to take care of emergent needs.
Continuity of care is very important to us at Mermaid Birth. You will know your birth team very well by the time your baby is ready to make his/her appearance. 🙂
Danielle has been attending both out of hospital and hospital births since 1999. Over 15 years of birth experiences.
She is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and is also licensed through Utah State as an LDEM (Licensed Direct-Entry Midwife).

Amuri is second Midwife. She has worked with Danielle for the past 5 years. She practices very much like Danielle. Amuri’ was a CNA prior to becoming a Midwife and her medical training is a definite benefit to our practice. She will sit for her national exam in May and plans to be a licensed Midwife. Amuri has 4 children, the last 2 she birthed beautifully underwater. Her passion is to support women in the kind of birth experiences they want, while keeping them safe.
