Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: My family took in foster care infants throughout my teenage years. This gave me experience and a love of taking care of babies. I find myself drawn to women who are pregnant and those who have babies. I have been a source of support and knowledge for many of my friends over the years. I have one child of my own and have been a special educator for more than 15 years.

What led you to become a Doula?: New mothers need support, and I enjoy providing that support.

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

Warm personality, empathetic, hard-working, dedicated, strives for continuous improvement, rational and level-headed.
“She has the ability to identify problems and seek ways to troubleshoot them. Where others find barriers to improvement, Sarah works toward finding solutions, all grounded in the reality of what is able to be accomplished. This often comes via her unique ability to think creatively. She is someone I look to when difficulties arise, as she is adept at transforming problems into results.”
