I worked on the board of a non-profit called the Central Coast Doula Association for 2 years in my early Doula days. One of which I was President. During my term I co-created a grant that supported local families in receiving birth and postpartum doula scholarships. This grant also covered the cost of training local doulas as well, it became a very beautiful offering in our community~

Working with Sarah through the birth of my first child was a truly wonderful and indispensable experience. Our pre-natal visits helped to prepare me and quell my increasing anxiety leading up to the big day. Throughout my unmedicated labor she was a calming but strong energy, both physically and emotionally. She put counter pressure on my back for hours to help me alleviate back labor, and guided my husband in the delivery room as well. She coached me through the pain of each stage with unfaltering poise. In the aftermath, Sarah was able to fill in the holes for me, that had left me feeling emotionally vulnerable and that closure gave me the permission to recover mentally as well as physically and enjoy every second with my new baby.
Sarah was an integral part of my pregnancy and birth journey. She brings a mix of emotional and spiritual support coupled with extensive medical knowledge of the birth process, a combination I did not find in any other doulas. During pregancy she provided a helpful and supportive ear, and was understanding and empathatic to everyhing I was going through. She was always available for me for questions and support via text or phone.
She was absolutely fantastic during my labor and delivery, and was flexible when things did no go according to my original "plan." She was supportive of my decisions and was able to bring both emotional and physical relief during the birth process. She helped immensely with pain management and to move the baby down before pushing. I contribute a lot of the success of my quick labor and birth to her.
