Candida Duran Taveras

Hello! I am a Birth & Postpartum Doula and a Birth Photographer/Videographer serving Salt Lake County in both English and Spanish.

My life was completely dedicated to the world of documentary film for over 8 years. That changed in 2015 when I accepted a job working with toddlers and infants. That job turned into a passion, and after having my own child I decided that it was time for me to become a Doula.  A few weeks after giving birth, I took the first opportunity I could find and trained with Genesis Birth Company. Since then, I have combined my passions and have never been happier!

I believe that every birthing person knows what’s best for their body. All births are beautiful and I am here to support you and help you have the birth experience that you want. As a Person of Color, my mission is to empower brown, black, and indigenous people through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Along with birth services, I can help you live a more sustainable life. I believe that it is important for us to take care of the earth while bringing life onto her.

Hola! Soy una Doula de Nacimiento y Postparto, así como también una fotógrafa/videograbadora de nacimiento que sirve en Inglés y en Español.

Mi vida estuvo completamente dedicada al mundo del cine documental durante más de 8 años. Eso cambió en 2015 cuando acepté un trabajo trabajando con bebés y niños pequeños. Ese trabajo se convirtió en una pasión, y después de tener a mi hija, decidí que era hora de convertirme en una Doula. Aproveché la primera oportunidad que pude encontrar y entrene con Genesis Birth Company. Desde entonces, he combinado mis pasiones y nunca he sido mas feliz!

Creo que cada persona dando luz sabe lo que es mejor para su cuerpo. Todos los nacimientos son hermosos y estoy aquí para apoyarte y ayudarte a tener la experiencia de nacimiento que deseas. Como una mujer de color, mi misión es empoderar a las personas negras e indígenas durante el embarazo, el parto y el posparto.

Junto con los servicios de parto, puedo ayudarlo a vivir una vida más sostenible. Creo que es importante que cuidemos a la tiera mientras le damos vida.

 

Regardless of your national origin, race, color, religion, ability, sex, familial status, and identity, I’m here to listen to you, to support your vision of pregnancy and parenthood, and help facilitate it into fruition. As a non-judgmental birth professional whose agenda is YOUR agenda, my mission is to ensure you feel the steady pulse of support, commiseration, and empowerment you deserve. Together we will find ways for your pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum to feel fulfilling, connected, and manageable.

Are you Black, indigenous, person of color (BIPOC)? Ask me about scholarship opportunities!
