The term doula refers to a non-medical support person who assists a woman before, during and after childbirth. She takes on a support role for the birthing mother as well as her partner and/or family by providing continuous physical assistance, emotional support and information.
Numerous studies have shown that with support

You deserve the support to a thriving pregnancy, healthy baby, and healthy bonding. Its never to late to receive true support!
“Sarah’s kind, compassionate, and gentle disposition made me feel comfortable from our initial meeting. She exceeded all or our expectations, both with her physical and inner-strength as she tirelessly attended to my every need. She helped relieve excruciating back labor pains with constant counter-pressure and she never left me alone for one minute, allowing my partner to rest up for the deliver of our son. She even stayed hours after the birth ensuring that I had eaten and she even helped my newborn learn how to nurse. She was also in contact with us several days after the birth providing homeopathic care along with emotional support & release for myself, partner, and baby. Ultimately, Sarah made our dream birth a reality – and for that we are eternally grateful.”
– Tara Burk, School Teacher
“Sarah’s help before and after the birth of our son was so supportive for our family. I was grateful that although we were far away, that she was available on Skype and phone sessions. I believe it was through Sarah’s love and wisdom that our son was able to release of lot of birth trauma from a C-Section. Also, the support that she gave, allowed me to relax and be present for my son on deeper levels. Sarah has a softness that is so soothing and along with her strength and knowledge she is a perfect expression of Love!”
