Hello! Congratulations on your pregnancy!
This is such a very exciting time for you! My goal as a doula is to help and assist you with physical, emotional and informational support during your pregnancy, labor and the birth of your baby.
My name is Sara! I am a birth and postpartum doula. I have 3 beautiful children of my own! 2 girls and 1 boy. My passion for birth began when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I began to research pregnancy, birth and everything in between. I remember during my labor I wished there was someone to help me through contractions, and to help reassure me that this baby was going to eventually come out. There were many times I thought that this baby was just never going to come out. Haha! After she was born, I continued with my passion of birth and had thoughts of becoming a midwife. It wasn’t until my third child was born that I discovered what a doula was. I remember during my labor, I was having some fears. My midwife’s assistant, who also worked as a doula, told me all the right things that I needed to hear just at that moment. It wasn’t until I spoke with the assistant about how much help she was, when I learned what a doula was. That’s when it hit me, this is my destiny in life! I wanted to be that person to help the laboring mom do just what her body was meant for, to birth her child!
My journey began as I chose to certify through Birth Arts International. I have attended both home and hospital births. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! I look forward to hearing from you! Have a wonderful day!
