Heather Shelley, LDEM, CPM, CD
I have been attending births continuously since 2001. I have attended births in many places including: Texas, Washington, Bali-Indonesia, Haiti, Dominican Republic, and of course Utah. I love working with students, and as an approved preceptor with NARM, I have been teaching students in and out of Utah since 2010.
I am a CPM, licensed midwife in Utah and have passed the midwifery exams in NZ for licensure there. I am also a doula and counselor.
My passion is to pass on the knowledge that I have gleaned as a midwife from those around me to those desiring to become midwives themselves. I love giving students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, as well as helping them to become independent midwives. I encourage my students to be self thinkers, to trouble-shoot on their own, and to be increase their compassion for mothers.
I have taught childbirth classes for 15 years, apprenticed doulas, apprenticed student midwives, taught doula trainings, breastfeeding classes, newborn care classes, monitrice classes, midwife assistant classes and more. I have taken student midwives to the Dominican Republic where we did 30 births a day, and I have learned midwifery from midwives all over the world.
With this in mind I decided that I wanted to help student midwives who lived in places where they couldn’t get the training they needed, or that training would take them years to acquire. I created a student midwife program for those who need their clinical experience and would like to work in a high volume clinic, but still have the care and comforts of a home birth.
