ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Solveig Christianson and this is Elskan Birth Wellness.

I am a DONA certified birth doula, and have supported a wide range births from unmedicated home birth, to hospital VBAC. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and certification in Infant Mental Health from The University of Utah and I love sharing my knowledge of all things wellness and birth. 

I felt called to birth work and have loved every minute caring for families in this transformative time! I love all things yoga, film, nutrition, and fresh air. 

Features

BIRTH WORK

A doula is a  trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to their client before, during, and after childbirth. In my practice I strive to advocate for parents, educate them on their health and how it changes during this time, and provide a space for all the feelings that birth brings to the surface.  

01

Advocacy

Be an active listener to your family's needs in order to help you meet the guidance of your intuition

02

Holistic Health

The interaction of hormones, nutrition, movement, and intimacy are all vital to feeling supported through a pregnancy and postpartum

03

Emotional Safety

Creating an environment in which we feel safe to express our fears and joys surrounding this transition so we can foster healthy communication

"Elskan": an Icelandic word meaning love, darling, or sweetheart

Testimonials

 I am so, so grateful Solveig was part of my birth experience. With Sol's support, I had a successful and uncomplicated VBAC with my second baby. Sol was attentive, knowledgeable, and a calming presence. When plans changed mid-labor, she was flexible, prepared, and supportive. 100% would recommend. Sol, thank you for being part of our son's birthday!

When we found out we were expecting our first child, we knew we wanted to have a doula we could trust and count on through the entire experience. After meeting Sol, we knew she was we wanted apart of our team! Throughout pregnancy Sol was always responsive, offered educated support, very professional, comforting and beyond helpful. We felt that we had a trusted partner to help advocate for what we wanted while supporting us through labor, delivery and postpartum physically and mentally. We couldn't have done it without Sol and will forever be grateful for her and her passion for birth work to help us bring out first child into the world.
