Hello! I'm Sarah, and I am completing my Postpartum Doula Certification through Embodied Doula Trainings. I believe that holistic support for the entire family, not just physical care of the baby, is vital during the postpartum period. I have deep respect for both traditional knowledge and modern science, and utilize both in my services. I am a NICU mom with two kids, and I enjoy knitting, reading, and taking walks in the woods.

I provide three main types of services. For in-person care, I come to your house, and we start my shift by discussing about your priorities and goals. Every day I'm with your family will look a bit different as the needs of you and baby change. Support may include troubleshooting the nursing relationship, baby care while parents nap or shower, playing with older siblings, light housework, listening to the birth story, recommending products or providers, prepping meals and snacks, taking baby for a walk, etc. I also offer text/email support for those who will have plenty of physical support but would like to have a reliable resource for any questions or concerns that come up along the way. The last option is video support. Usually once a week I have an hour-long video call with the family to talk about what is or isn't working, explore and educate about their options, make plans for upcoming phases, etc.
