Carlie Didericksen

Hi, I'm Carlie Didericksen! I've been a doula since 2021 and have served on the UDA board since. I have a passion for all things birth through postpartum. Building community and support within the birth world is important to me. I hope to be able to continue the UDA's mission to bring support to all birthing families and creating community and connection to all as well.

Carly Chapple

I’m Carly Chapple, wife and mom to three.  I’ve been a birth + postpartum doula for five years in the Salt Lake area.  I am passionate about birth options, lactation, and empowering birthing people to use their voice.  This past year I also served as the Mentoring Committee Chair.  There is such value in community, and I find that particularly applies to the doula community.  I look forward to creating new ties and strengthening the current ties we have with each other, allowing for essential support among all of us and therefore better support for our clients.
