Nicole Konkin

From the consult to our breast feeding journey, Sarah has been a highly educated, professional, open, honest and confident doula and lactation consultant. Her approach to all things birth and baby made me feel empowered to not only make choices for me and my baby but to feel confident in my right of passage. She is so calm and collected and always has an education based approach to any challenge or birth strategy. Before sarah, my partner and I had so much anxiety about all the unknown in pregnancy and birth. After meeting Sarah we were able to calmly approach and enjoy our pregnancy and birth. She completely changed the dynamic of our relationship with eachother and our baby.

After delivery and experiencing breast feeding challenegs, sarah was always available to help troubleshoot, stop in to assess or to offer simple suggestions and a listening ear. She has been a real source of sanity for us and allowed us to enjoy a calm confident home rather than one filled with chaos and anxiety. We are so grateful that we met her and that she was so actively posting birth education on facebook where we found her. Her birth philosophy refelcts what we have done for over 200,000 years.. so much power in that. I highly recommend Sarah! (They also have the most adorable postpardum gifts for the family.. it really reflects the "village" mentality and theres so much more respite in that package that you'd ever realise you needed and comes at the most perfect time in the journey).
