Stephanie Sorensen, CYT CD CBE (she/her)
I mentor women in overcoming trauma and victimization in childbirth and motherhood through education, ceremonial traditions, and personalized support.
*SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT GENDER: My speciality is working with individuals who identify as female who are seeking to more deeply connect with their feminine nature. For other individuals, I hold space for your journey and would love to direct you to vetted local birth workers more qualified to support you.
Stephanie is passionate about her work as certified yoga teacher, doula, childbirth educator, and personal mentor. Stephanie is the founder of Bhava Birth, a yoga and meditation-based childbirth education course. She believes that birth is a spiritual right of passage and a profound opportunity for personal growth. Her speciality is merging Eastern wisdom with Western research in an effective multidisciplinary approach. Above all else in the birth experience, Stephanie values sovereignty, consent, and whole-body attunement.
Stephanie loves to travel, write, spend time in nature, have deep one-on-one conversations, and avoid crowded places. Her happy place involves wool socks, a hot beverage, a cozy sweater, and something to write on. Her introverted nature brings a sense of calm and depth with her wherever she goes. Stephanie is married to Nicolas, an intuitive deep tissue massage therapist, personal development coach, and Tai Chi instructor. Together they're raising four awesome children in beautiful Provo, Utah.
