Birth will be some of the hardest work you ever do.
It will also be some of the most rewarding.
The way you feel when you give birth matters.
I fell in love with pregnancy and birth after my first baby was born in 2017. Since then I have had two more babies and each birth taught me new lessons. I had three very different birth experiences and they were all beautiful and empowering in their own way. It doesn't matter if you are pregnant for the first or fifth time, birth is mysterious and unpredictable. It is also beautiful and life-changing.
Birth will change you and transform you.
I learned so much about birth and postpartum from my own unique births. I am also a certified doula through Childbirth International. I love supporting families as a doula and building strong relationships with my clients across Vermont. I will meet with you multiple times during pregnancy and listen to you share about your fears and wishes you have for your birth and postpartum experiences. I provide education and support throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Once you hire me, I am always available for phone or email support. I only work with a limited number of families each month so I am able to give each family the support they need. I truly believe that the way you feel when you give birth matters, and I want every Vermont family to have a happy birth expereince. Having a positive birth experience can help you feel strong and confident going into your postpartum season.
I am also a professional Vermont photographer and love capturing memories for families. I have always enjoyed photography as a way to share stories and emotions. I offer maternity photography, birth photography, Fresh 48 photography, Lifestyle Newborn Sessions, and Baby photography for Vermont families. I offer photography packages on their own, or you can choose to bundle photography packages with my doula services.
I want you to feel safe, supported, and respected throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
"Sarah was such an important part of our birth team - when things didn't go quite according to plan she helped keep us calm and we all rolled with the changes together. She was such a reassuring and nurturing presence from start to finish."
