Hello my name is Dy and I would love to support you in a birth experience you will cherish. I was always drawn to the wonder of birth and was able to witness my first homebirth at the age of eleven. I am the mother of four children born at a hospital and at home. Their births have helped me to realize the potential of what I am capable and focus the importance of everything I believe.
While getting my Bachelors Degree in Psychology I once again found myself drawn to the miracle of pregnancy and birth. I focused my study on issues of pregnancy (prenatal and postpartum depression), human and child development, and women's studies as well as completing all my pre-nursing requirements. After the birth of my first child I trained and Certified with Doulas of North America (DONA) as a birth doula. I soon became a Childbirth and Post Partum Association (CAPPA) and Bradley Method (AAHCC) certified childbirth educator. I also began assisting midwives with births at home. My experience as a doula and educator includes home, birth center and hospital births with mothers who chose medicated and unmedicated births. I have worked closely with numerous doctors and midwives and I continue to work hard to keep a good relationship with local care providers which helps ensure my clients and myself are treated with the respect we deserve and get good quality medical care when needed.
I began my apprenticeship in homebirth midwifery officially in 2008. I worked with several midwives in the area as well as completed extensive study to complete my training as a traditional midwife. I have experience with multiple twins,vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) births, and breech births as well as a wide range of complications. I passed the NARM exam given by the North American Registry of Midwives granting me the title of Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). I am proficient in the use of herbs, homeopathics, and essential oils that can be used if necessary to help you have a safe and healthy birth. I am licensed with the state of Utah as a Licensed Direct Entry Midwife (LDEM) permitting me to carry anti-hemorrhage medication as well as other medications useful for birth when necessary. I practice within the scope of my license. When needed I can refer you for consultation or transfer of care with a local OB or perinatologist. I have an ultrasound and lab account to provide these services when desired or needed.
I believe that a woman has an innate ability to birth her baby. Birth is a normal physiological process not a medical event. Women are often astounded by the options around them when they are nearing their time of birth. I believe that when women are given all their options, they will choose what is right for the health of their baby. I believe those present should trust the woman to know what is best for her and her baby. This leads to a sense of satisfaction and responsibility which follows the family unit through the rest of their life. I believe in the value of women in service of other women.
There are many factors that play into a woman's choice for her birth. Her emotional, physical, and psychological well being should be taken into account and her wishes supported. Not fear, but understanding and intuition should be the motivating factors for her choices. I believe all women have the right of loving support from her partner and if she desires a doula and compassionate midwife. This is not a transformation she must undergo alone.
My goal as a midwife, doula and educator is to provide women the resources, skills and knowledge they need to have the birth they desire. I believe birth is an amazing, normal, and beautiful experience and the birthing mother should be treated that way as well. I want every woman to cherish her birth!
My name is Gina Bundy. I was born and raised amongst the beautiful red rock hills of St. George, Utah. I’m a middle child from a family of five children where there was never a dull moment growing up. I have loved growing up in Southern Utah and the beautiful weather it offers. I enjoy doing anything that is in the outdoors, like hiking, camping, and spending time on the lake or Dutch oven cooking.
I graduated from Pine View High School in 2000. I went on to Dixie State College and received my Associates of Science Degree. I have also completed the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program. As a Nurses Assistant I have worked in a local care center, in homecare and as a hospice aide. I care for the elderly and help them live their daily lives. I have also been trained as a Doulas of North America (DONA) Doula, Childbirth Educator and Lactation Educator. I am attending midwifery school through the Community School of Midwifery distance education program.
The first birth I attended was in 2009 when my sister had her first baby. She was planning on having the baby at the hospital and in the middle of labor she decided she wanted to birth at home. I was amazed to watch the birthing processes and to see firsthand what a midwives roll is. I loved how caring they were and how they helped her through her birthing experience. I was able to watch as the midwives worked and gave her the support that she needed at that time. It really interested me in what they did and how the body works at the time of child birth. It intrigued me enough that I took a DONA Doula class to learn more.
I have been apprenticing with Dy since 2012. Working at Complete Beginnings helps me gain the skills I need to serve as an idependent midwife some day. I enjoy learning and being involved in the birthing process and am excited to learn more about the human body and the beautiful progression of pregnancy and birth. I take my own doula clients at home and in the hospital. In 2013 I began to research and learn about the art form of placenta encapsulation. I offer this service to clients of Complete Beginnings Midwifery and other mothers in the community. It has been rewarding to see the differences that it has made in helping mother and baby. I love working with mothers and helping to educate, prepare, and guide them through labor, birth and post partum. It is an honor and a blessing to partake in this service.
