Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Former EMT and mother of 3

What led you to become a Doula?: I knew I wanted to work with people who were just starting out on the parenthood path. Having my own children I realized the large gap in prenatal and postpartum care and I really felt a strong urge to support parents through this period.

What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:

“Sarah made me feel so comfortable and supported from the moment I met her. The money we invested in her services was some of the best money we have ever spent! We love The Barefoot Doula!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: My ProDoula manuals, Evidence Based Birth, & KellyMom

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I remember how it exciting it was for me and I hope that they have the support and love that they deserve!

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: No fancy tricks, just SUPPORT! In all forms-emotional, informational and physical!

What is your favorite TV show or movie?: The Golden Girls & Stranger Things

What is your favorite place to vacation?: Any beach

What is your favorite food?: ALL the food, but Mexican and Sushi are on the top of my list

What is your favorite way to spend a day off?: By getting to sleep in for at least an hour, fresh coffee, spending the day with my family with no specific place to go, ordering in food and ending the day with popcorn and a movie! That's my perfect day!

Who lives in your house?: My life partner, Jason and our three boys Spencer, Gryphen and Harvey. We also have Oprah the cat and June the Bernese Mountain Dog
