Hello! I thought it was past time to do an introduction! My name is Sarah Newton! I recently moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia after serving birth and postpartum clients for the last 3 years in the Richmond area. Prior to that I spent 6 years serving families in Missouri.
I am loving the area, and working on submersing myself in the birthing community! It’s hard to know what everyone would like to know about me, but here we go.
I began my doula journey 9 years ago! My first doula baby was born January 21st, 2011. I took a DONA birth doula training and have been certified since. I even had the pleasure of doing the training under the doula I had with my daughter. This was followed by 2 DONA postpartum trainings! It’s hard to believe I am 9 years into this doula work. I didn’t even know I was passionate about birth until I had a doula and things just sort of seemed to fall into place.
In the last 9 years, I have attended over 134 births, 30+ postpartum families supported, and have spent hundreds of hours helping families transition into this new period of life. Nothing about what I do is boring and I love every part of being a doula.
To continue this introduction, I am a 37 years old, married, with 2 kids. This journey has followed my husband through multiple job changes that have officially brought us to Fredericksburg, Virginia. I have spent the last few months working on meeting new doulas, checking out the local hospitals, giving my website a face lift, and getting ready for all the amazing things that 2020 has to offer. Which leads me to the following: availability!!!
I am currently available for new clients for the following:
