Greetings! My name is Daelyn Kingston and I am a doula with Wasatch Mountain Birth Boot Camp. I was born in St. George, UT in the beautiful month of April. I am the oldest of 8 children in my family and have 3 sisters and 4 brothers. We have been blessed with wonderful parents. While a few short years of my childhood were spent in Cache Valley, ultimately I grew up in Las Vegas, NV. I spend a great deal of my youth on horseback and outside with friends and siblings. It was fantastic!
I graduated from high school and headed to college. I started my college career looking at nursing, labor and delivery was my choice. After watching some interactions with some nurse moms and their kids, I decided that maybe nursing wasn't a family friendly career and changed my major. I always loved education and spent all my high school years working with children, so I changed my major to elementary education. I loved it! I loved working with sweet children and I was very blessed to teach kindergarten for several years.
In my life I have been tremendously blessed to have been married to two wonderful men. I married Chris right after I graduated college and spend a wonderful year with him before he passed away very suddenly from leukemia. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever been through, but it changed me in so many positive ways. It made me stronger, it just made me more than I had been. Then I was amazingly blessed to marry my sweet Kent. He is kind, generous, funny, smart and handsome and I am forever thankful he is mine. He gave me 3 beautiful step daughters and then together we have 7 beautiful children. All together we have 8 daughters and 2 sons. Of my 7 births, 4 were hospital births. Some induction, some medicated, some natural. My last 3 were home births and I loved those as well.
While spare time is not plentiful at this point in my life, there are several things I love to do. Reading, sewing, spending time with my family, teaching and taking care of our small farm are some of my favorite things! I am a proud member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I love the responsibilities that I have there also.
I attended my first birth when I was 19 years old. I was invited to attend the birth of a friend's baby. The experience was one of the most memorable of my life. It confirmed what I had know since I was little, that I loved birth and wanted to be part of it. Over the years I have attended a variety of births, each leaving a new impression on my mind and heart. Natural, Cesarean, multiples, hospital, home each one amazing, each one magical and each one with a new lesson learned. I feel immensely blessed to be able to use this knowledge to encourage, help and empower women and they bring their little ones earth side.
