D’Anne Moon, CNM
After the birth of her first child, D’Anne fell in love with the birth process and developed a strong desire to help women through such a powerful experience. Her approach is comprehensive and holistic and D’Anne believes that health is affected by all of life’s influences.
She earned her nursing degrees from Weber State and Regents College. She then earned her Master’s of Science Midwifery from the University of Utah.
In addition to helping women and their families through the birth process, she provides care for women in all stages of life. She performs routine physical exams, hormones and bioidentical hormones counseling, and prescribes family planning. She is certified through the American College of Nurse-Midwives and is still an active member.
As a Certified Nurse-Midwife, D’Anne works with the classic midwifery model. She bases her practice on the knowledge that most pregnancies, labor, and births are normal biological processes and result in healthy outcomes for both mother and baby. D’Anne focuses on the health and wellness of both the woman and her baby. She identifies and manages medical problems early on and attends to the emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of pregnancy and birth.
During the birth process, D’Anne seeks to protect, support, and avoid interfering with the unique rhythm, character, and timing of each woman’s labor. However, she is also trained to be vigilant in identifying serious complications and seeking care from the appropriate medical care provider. Medical intervention and expertise are sought when necessary, but are not routine.
D’Anne and her husband, Steve, are the parents of four children and love their three grandchildren.
