Hey there! I'm Sarah of Aunt Sarah Doula Services, I serve families throughout Northeast Ohio. My philosophy is inclusive, non-judgmental, and evidence based care. I will support whatever choices work for you and your family, no matter what you decide regarding pain management, birth location, cultural birth traditions, feeding, etc. I am here for it all! I believe that everyone deserves a doula and even if you think you can't afford one, I will make it happen. I would love to provide endless support (and hopefully cookies) to guide you through the birth of your child.

I offer birth doula services, and I will be adding postpartum doula services soon. I help the birthing person prepare for labor and the birth of their child, and I currently provide basic postpartum care as well. Most of my work is done in the prenatal prep phases (expectations, birth planning, etc) and through continuous support during labor and delivery (birth positions, comfort measures, distraction techniques, etc). I am available for referrals and resources that are outside of my scope as well as answering any questions and concerns.
