Meet Sara


Hi, I’m Sara! I am a mother and a wife. And I love babies and I always have. So finding a job where I could be surrounded by babies was a no brainer! I came from a home where talking about labor, delivery, or breastfeeding, and everything in between is common dinner conversation. I even attended the birth of my youngest brother, when I was 16. We were the women that people called when there were questions about pregnancy, labor, or breastfeeding. That’s still true.

While I have always had an affinity towards children, and babies especially, when I became a mother myself, it transformed. It became more focused, and more bent towards mother-baby bonding. Which in turn led me to the very beginning. The birth. I used a doula for the births of all three of my children, and after hearing many, many stories of women who did not have a support system during their labors, left me feeling like I had to do something. So I did! I immediately signed up to do doula training. Shortly after becoming a birth doula I discovered that (of course!) I also loved continuing to support families in their post partum time. And there birthed the post partum doula!
For me, doula care is a lot like mothering. As doula, I serve as something akin to a mother who has paved the way and is there to lead you down the path, no matter what path it may be. I am support in any scenario. I can help to take all the other guess work and busy-work out of the equation. I can offer water when needed, a bathroom break for partners, explanations when things arise, a reminder to relax, and in general, a sense of calm. When mama is focused on the only thing she really can be, having and caring for her baby, I will be focused on her and making sure that everyone is well supported.
With every year I continue to support families as a doula, the more I realize that I have been doula-ing birthing friends and family for a great majority of my life! And love it more and more with every birth, and every transitioning family supported, even every conversation about birth!

Let me know how I can support you and your growing family!

One thought on “Meet Sara

  1. She came to be my doula late in my pregnancy after a friend/doula decided she no longer wanted to be my doula at 30 weeks! Sara was there for me every step if the way ! Even when stuff with her family came up she was there for me and let
    Me know. She knew I was going to go into labor before I did! She made it there just I time ! ( I go very fast) I was only in labor just over a hr ! She made if there reminded me of what I needed to do and was very calm! Afterwards when u didn’t have the best midwife and didn’t get the birth I wanted she had a word with the midwife InThe hall about the wAy she made the student take forever on doing my stitches… She then even followed up with me while in the hospital and through us talking we decided it would be more beneficial to do a post part visit at home, when we had less visitors… We had established good nursing right after birth! She was very clear to let me know that if I felt i needed her before then or if I had any issues that I felt I needed her she would be there… I had a very easy birth and nursing was going well . We were in contact the whole time I was in the hospital and even after! She Is amazing! She’d been a great photographer as well lol
