I am a birth doula, postpartum doula and board-certified music therapist serving families in Salt Lake County. I love working with all families including LGBTQ+ parents, adoptive parents, and single parents. I accompany families giving birth in the hospital, a birth center, or at home, and I support all types of birth. I believe it is every birthing person’s right to be educated about their birth options, and to have a birth experience that is safe, supported and empowering.
As a board-certified music therapist, I have extensive clinical training on how to use music to help people reach goals, experience deep inner connection, and process difficult emotions. I specialize in Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth, an evidence-based technique where I help expecting families incorporate music into their labor in order to experience deeper connection, confidence and strength during their birth experience. I also help parents write original songs called “womb songs” to their babies, facilitating deep bonding and connection.

Hello, my name is Jessica Fronce and I am a certified doula. I have more than three years experience and have supported over one hundred mothers through all types of birth.

My name is Jessica Poulsen and I am a mother of 1 energetic little boy and 1 sweet little girl. I am passionate about many things including breastfeeding, gentle and instinctual parenting, and empowering women to take charge of their bodies and their births.
I have been a CAPPA Certified Birth Doula for 4 years and have been an advocate of women’s rights (especially in the sacred experience of birth) for as long as I can remember. I started my journey into the birth worker world after the birth of my son. I realized during my not-so-woman-centered birth that having more Doulas in the area was MUCH needed. I later went on to have the most healing and empowering birth experience 2 years later that even further instilled this passion and fire for birth within my soul. Every single woman deserves to feel the way I felt that day and as I Doula I make that my goal. Whatever your birth preferences are, YOU deserve to feel empowered and in the drivers seat.
I believe birth can be an enjoyable, transcending, life-changing, and empowering experience. I believe birth is a safe physiological event, not a medical emergency. I chose to become a doula to educate women about their options and aid in making their birth experience a positive one. Trusting a woman’s intuition and allowing their choices of where and how to give birth should be encouraged and embraced.
I live in the foothills of Salt Lake with my wonderful husband, 4 beautiful children, and our Golden Retriever, Iris. Before becoming a doula, I worked in the medical field for 17 years from ophthalmology to orthopedics!
I began my doula work in 2012. I am trained in both labor and postpartum by ProDoula and DONA, certified Stillbirthday bereavement doula, and a Certified Newborn Care Specialist. I strive to provide professional, honest care to all of my clients.
I am passionate about sleep, baking, and traveling.
At Wasatch Doulas, my partner, Kiki Norman and I provide a wide spectrum of post birth doula services as well as personalized sleep consulting and advice and expert mother and newborn care. We are the premier doula services for overnight care. We are considered the modern alternative to a baby nurse or night nanny.
My favorite part of being a doula is all of the new families I get to meet. Every family is unique and deserves custom-tailored care, but they all have something in common. They love their children.

I have been a Doula practicing in the Salt Lake Valley for 10 years. My training included working with my mentor who is a licensed clinical hypnotherapist and one of the busiest doulas in the Salt Lake Valley. During the year that I shadowed with her I attended hundreds of births and sitting in on multiple childbirth class series. I continue to further my education by attending conferences every year and have training in all relaxation and coping techniques that can be useful during childbirth. Including, the use of essential oils, acupressure, music therapy, hydrotherapy, movement, spinning babies, Bradleys, hypno birthing, hypno babies, mindful breathing and more. It is important to me that each mother and her partner feel supported and then dad’s especially feel included and able to participate at the level that they desire. As my husband put it after the birth of our first son and the use of our Doula “the Doula was there to make (Dad) feel like a knight in shining armor, able to help him say all the right thing and make all the right suggestions”
I am also an educator for Birth Learning, my partners and I teach an advanced Doula training. In addition to our Doula services.
I also teach a coping skills class to assist in the postpartum recovery process. This class is targeted for those who might be experiencing prenatal or postpartum depression anxiety or mood disorders.
I also teach hypnosis and mindfulness 101.
This class is designed for professionals or parents who are interested in learning about using relaxation techniques like mindfulness, meditation or hypnosis during childbirth.
Another class that I teach is a religion based childbirth class titled Created to Birth. This class is designed to help mothers connect to the gifts they have been given by their Creator. To help them have a more positive birthing experience as they gain knowledge and information about being designed to birth and build coping skills.
