We’re your SouthEast Idaho radical birthing resource specializing in hope, bereavement, support, birth, postpartum, and your journey.

 We are Hope Birth & Beyond!


Hope Birth & Beyond Private Contact Association & Membership was founded out of a deep passion for supporting mothers and families in the community. The aim was to bring them together and help them find personal support in navigating the beauty of birth and trusting their bodies. Although some may find this approach revolutionary, it has proven to be effective in empowering women.


As a child, Hope dreamt of becoming a teacher and a radical leader who could help women reclaim their power. She never realized that her journey would lead her to become a midwife, doula, childbirth educator, and more. Hope is a Graduate of Indie Birth Midwifery School, Class of 2021, an Internationally Certified Birth, Postpartum, and Bereavement Doula, Radical Birth keeper, N.R.P. provider, L.L.L. Leader, Spinning babies, B.E.S.T. certified, and holds a current Certificate to pass medication in Idaho.


Hope began her journey as a mother, breastfeeding counselor, La Lache league leader, photographer, and doula. She followed the apprenticeship model of care and later graduated from midwifery school. Hope holds additional education in Childhood Nutrition, BS in Midwifery, An A.A. in Photography, Nutrition for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, Medical Research and Trial Studies, Cosmetology, Genes, and the Human Condition -Behavior to Biotechnology, Essential Oils, and The Beauty of Normal Physiology in Pregnancy, Labor, and Birth by Ina May Gaskin.
