Sarah came highly recommended as a thorough, calm and compassionate practitioner by our doula who has a large working knowledge of childbirth professionals in our area. Upon meeting Sarah, we were immediately comfortable, felt safe in her experienced care and empowered by her organic approach to the normalcy of childbirth and parenthood. Sarah is a wealth of knowledge and support and was always prompt and thorough when attending to my questions and concerns. I always felt a sense of ease when communicating and sharing with her during prenatal visits. And as a mother herself, she was endlessly patient with our toddler who was always excited to see her and loved to “help” during prenatal visits. During my labor, Sarah was sensitive and attentive to my birthing body as well as my emotional state. Sarah was instrumental in helping us welcome our daughter into the world in a peaceful, loving and meaningful way! At our last postpartum visit, I was sad to say goodbye to Sarah and the working friendship that had ensued over my pregnancy.
Thank you for your professionalism and love!
With All of Our Love,

When I was pregnant for the first time, I went to an OB-GYN for my first prenatal visit and it was awful. I remember the doctor having her hand on the door handle just waiting to leave the room when I was just trying to ask a few general questions about the pregnancy-she wouldn’t give me the time of day. I had also talked to several friends who had shared their hospital birth experiences and I didn’t want to have a similar experience. I came home and told my husband that I wanted to look into having a homebirth. It turned out to be such a blessing to be able to have natural childbirths in the comfort of our own home. Part of that blessing for my husband and I was having Sarah attend to the birth of of both my son and daughter. Sarah has a calmness and confidence to herself that brings reassurance to the room. During the births, her knowledge and experience allowed her to recognize the progress of my labor and she was able to coach me and give us support when needed. She also allowed my husband and I the space and time we needed to let my body handle the different stages of labor naturally. She gave us her full attention and and availability from pregnancy to postpartum answering any questions we had before, during, and after the birth. The care that was provided for our homebirths has been amazing and the experiences are invaluable to us.
