With 11+ years of doula experience, Sarah is ready to support you through your birth journey. She is passionate about guiding women and their families through pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum while attending all types of births as a doula!

Sarah was a licensed massage therapist before becoming a doula. That training and experience has been a HUGE asset for her clients. It helped her learn a great deal about the body, like how to specifically look where pregnant women hold tension. She can remind you when and where to release that tension, and how to help the body relax using different massage techniques.

Sarah's support for laboring moms often takes many forms. This includes encouragement, education, decision making, relaxation techniques, and suggesting position changes. She has extensive experience working with many different life situations and many different types of support people on the birth team. She knows it is very important to have a doula who knows how to respectfully support whomever is supporting that mom at her birth whether it is the husband, partner, mom, sister, or friend who needs emotional and educational support at the birth as well. It may be a different kind of support, but it is just as important to the laboring mother to have her loved ones better able to help her as well. 

Sarah has two beautiful children with her husband, Matthew. They had an amazing doula named Ginny for the birth of their daughter, who unexpectedly arrived early at 35 1/2 weeks. They were so thankful their doula was there supporting them. Ginny created calm wherever she went, and over time Sarah realized that she wanted to be able to offer that kind of atmosphere with love and support to pregnant moms, too.

While going through Birth Doula training, Sarah was able to learn from, train under and professionally mentored by her doula, Ginny. Sarah was honored to be hired at Ginny's non-profit doula organization after becoming a certified doula.

In 2014, Sarah branched out into her own business. Doula work is not always easy, but it fills her heart with doing something she loves. All the love and support from her family has allowed her to attend over 200 births in the last 11 years.

When she's not attending births or helping families postpartum, Sarah stays busy with her family by homeschooling her children, being involved at church, and going to playdates with friends.
