Meet Dietra Hudson
DONA Certified Birth Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor
Hi there! My name is Dietra and I live in Morrison, CO with my two sons and partner of 16 years. We love to get in the mountains as much as possible, whether it’s just for a drive or offroad in our Jeeps. When I’m not chasing my two sons around, I like to read, hike and garden. I run first thing in the morning (people tell me that’s crazy) and I also practice yoga, which I find helpful in teaching my clients comfortable positions for labor. This past June, I received my orange belt in karate and particularly enjoy jiu-jitsu. As a history buff, I like to photograph ghost and old mining towns. I consider this my artistic outlet and have given my photos as gifts and run an Instagram account to showcase my work.
As a 4th generation Colorado native, I am of Mestiza ancestry, meaning my ancestors were of Indigenous (Pueblo/Tewa) and Spanish heritage, originating in New Mexico and Mexico. While my family is a result of assimilation, I take great pride in and embrace both. Because of that, passing on traditional ways of healing and using what the Earth has given us, is of great importance to me. I am in the process of learning Spanish so that I can carry on my roots.
Having been a Doula for the past 6 years, I have experience with a wide variety of conditions. This includes:
- cesarean birth
- clients on bed rest
- clients over 40
- GBS positive
- gestational diabetes
- home birth
- inductions in all forms
- pregnancy after loss
- single parents
- survivors of childhood sexual abuse
- unmedicated vaginal birth
- water birth
And while I’ve experienced a lot, I know every single birth will teach me something new.
