My name is Jetta Anderson (pronounced “Yetta.”) I have been supporting families for almost 17 years as they welcome their new little one.
My love of labor and delivery began with the birth of my oldest son in 2002. Isaac was born at a free standing birth center with a midwife. Giving birth to him changed me in so many ways. After Isaac was born, I had the privilege of being trained by a local midwife to be her Birth Assistant. This gave me the opportunity to be with many families as their lives were forever changed. In 2004, I completed the Birth Doula training course at Seattle Midwifery School.
In 2009 I had the distinct honor of delivering my nephew when my sisters labor progressed so quickly that the midwife could not make it in time. Delivering my nephew renewed my passion for childbirth, but life had other things in store for me.
In 2010 – we were surprised to find out I was pregnant after years of miscarriages and infertility. In 2011, I gave birth to my second baby (3rd child – our daughter was adopted in 2005.) Due to some complications, Gabe was born at Swedish Hospital with an amazing OB.
I returned to my office job after my maternity leave while also attending births as a doula or midwives assistant. My desire to serve families was so big that when my little family relocated to Arizona 4 years ago, I finally took the leap and committed to finishing my education to become a CPM and LM.
I am 40 years old and married to my high school sweetheart. Chad and I started dating when we were 15 years old and were married at 19. We’ve celebrated 20 years of marriage and crossed the other side! We have 3 beautiful children: Isaac (16), Hope (14) and Gabe (8.)
I am so excited to be able to fully support a mom and her loved ones in my role as a CPM. It is the ultimate use of my knowledge, skills, passion and heart.
