Kendra Parry is a certified Birth Boot Camp Instructor (BBCI) teaching natural birth classes in Salt Lake City, Utah.

You can have an amazing birth experience

Welcome to BirthAsIntended.com. My name is Kendra Parry and I am a certified Birth Boot Camp Instructor (BBCI). I graduated from the University of Utah in 2009 with my Bachelors of Science in Human Development and have been teaching natural childbirth classes since 2012. I currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah, with my wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters.

I believe every woman can have an amazing birth experience. We live in a world where birth is often made out to be scary, but it doesn't have to be that way. Birth can be wonderful.

The birth of my second daughter, Paisely, in 2014

I became a childbirth educator to help empower women and their partners. The key to an amazing birth is to learn about your body, know your options in pregnancy and labor, learn how to promote helpful hormones in your body through relaxation, and then to trust yourself. Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to birth.

Q&A with a panel of childbirth educators. (I'm second from the left.)

Whether you plan on giving birth in a hospital, in a birth center, or at home—whether this is your first child or your fifth—you will have many choices to make along the way. And that is what Birth as Intended is all about: helping mothers and their partners understand their birth choices, whatever their circumstances may be.

You can have an amazing birth. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you find through birth the same confidence and empowerment that I have found. Most of all, though, I look forward to helping you have the birth that you intend to have—to Birth as Intended.

All the best,

Kendra Parry, BBCI


Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.
