Hey there! My name is Dietra Hudson. I was born and raised in Colorado and currently live in Morrison. My best friend and I met 14 years ago and have been married for 7. We have two amazing sons that are 6 and 3 years old.
Aside from loving anything that has to do with birth and breastfeeding, me and my family love to go off-roading. That’s how my husband and I met and we try to get on the trails as much as possible. When I find down time, I like to read and in the summer, I like to get my hands dirty in the garden or go hiking. I’ve recently took on photography and find the most inspiration in old Colorado Ghost and Mining Towns.
Why I Became a Doula
Giving birth to my first son, and becoming a mother was the most profound transition I have yet to experience in life. His birth taught me that labor is more than just physical but a spiritual journey as well.
As a Birth Doula I believe that our bodies know how to birth our babies, and I want to provide all of my clients with the holistic tools needed to guide them to that knowledge. Even if you don’t plan to have an unmedicated birth, I can help you navigate what interventions are best for you. When you feel confident during and after birth, you will have more trust in yourself as a parent, and it can help facilitate an extraordinary bond with your baby.
It is my passion to help birthing people have the most positive birth experience possible by providing evidence based information, emotional and physical comfort and unbiased support for any type of birth my clients wish to have. As a Certified Birth Doula through DONA International and a Certified Lactation Counselor through the Healthy Children’s Center for Breastfeeding, I have been honored to serve families since March 2016. I have attended both intervention free and highly medicalized births.
I have experience with:
- cesarean birth
- clients on bed rest
- clients over 40
- high risk
- intervention free birth
- single parents
- survivors of childhood sexual abuse
I am a proud member, mentor and volunteer for Colorado Community Doulas. Colorado Community Doulas is a non-profit organization that offers low cost DONA approved Birth Doula Trainings, and DONA approved Childbirth classes for anyone who is called to do birth work. Additionally, Colorado Community Doulas provides Volunteer Doulas to anyone experiencing disparities in the Denver Metro area.
