I’ve been helping parents for the past 11 years by providing care for their children starting before birth by supporting their gentle birth as a birth doula, helping them reach their breastfeeding goals as a La Leche League leader, and caring for them in my home daycare. I have since retired from child care and moved to Northern Indiana. I am excited to focus on my birth doula business, as well as expand on postpartum doulaservices in Southwest Michigan and Northern Indiana.
I am Sara and I have been married to my wonderful and supportive husband, Jason since 2002. We have three wonderful children; Xander, Hayden, and Hanna. I was uninformed during my first birth and had no extra support. The result of this was a birth full of interventions that left me full of regret that it was not the birth I wanted. Learning from that experience, my second and third births were empowering experiences, both completely natural and intervention-free.
During my third birth, I hired a birth doula and had an amazing experience. This lead me in finding my passion to support other women and their partners pregnancy, labor, birth, and becoming parents. I attended doula training at the Center for the Child Bearing Year in 2009, and have since then attended the births of over thirty beautiful babies.
