LOVING  HANDS  OPEN  HEART

Providing Premier Birth Doula Services In Northern New Jersey, Manhattan & Brooklyn

“There is this moment I remember from my birth where I looked at Sarah and she looked at me, and I knew, I could do it...
it was a higher and deeper moment.”
— Lindsay
Sarah was such a beautiful part of my birthing experience! From the moment we met her until her last postpartum visit she was a wise, gentle guide; a helping hand and heart, a teacher and a kindred spirit. Her very powerful but gentle energy was exactly what I needed during my labor. If you’re looking for an experienced, caring, spiritual, aware, connected, light-filled woman to be by your side for the magical process of birth- Sarah is the one.

SKILL HIGHLIGHTS

I have extensive knowledge & understanding of hospital procedures and birth interventions enabling me to provide integration support in real time thus creating a smoother birth journey and postpartum recovery for the whole family.

I have served just under 200 families through birth.

I have 3 years of hands on Midwifery Study.

I apprenticed with internationally renowned Homebirth Midwife, Mary Jackson, who is known for her expertise in the art of Pre & Perinatal Psychology, something she’s integrated into her 40+ year Homebirth practice.

I facilitate "Self Attachment", a newborn led, breastfeeding based, birth story healing journey.

I served on the board of a Doula Non Profit in Santa Barbara, Ca for 2 years, one of which I was President. During this time, I facilitated board meetings, managed volunteers, organized successful community events, workshops & training's, created grant funded programs, and oversaw the publication of our quarterly newsletters.

I offer a 13 Moon Doula Mentorship Program: Doula Thrive in which I initiate and walk with new Doulas in an intimate way, as we explore the childbearing year from the practical to the spiritual.

I'm the proud co-founder and owner of BLOOM Baby, a Northern New Jersey based Doula Referral Agency.

Sarah is truly amazing at what she does. My husband and I could not imagine going through our journey without her as our doula. She was always just a phone call or email away whenever we had questions and she supported us unconditionally in ways I felt my OB couldn’t and didn’t. I always felt so calm and peaceful in her presence which is one of my favorite things about her. Her extensive knowledge and comforting positive energy helped empower me and guided me through the most intense parts of my labor. Sarah is genuinely one of the most wonderful people I’ve had the chance to meet. My husband and I are forever grateful for all her support in welcoming our first child.

Sarah is so knowledgeable about pregnancy and everything that comes along with it including the birthing process. She was supportive, available, loving and calm at all times. During our twin pregnancy she was able to hear our concerns and put our minds at ease without any judgement. The most beneficial part of Sarah’s services was the way she came to support and protect us emotionally when our little girl was in the NICU for an extended period of time. She was there to comfort us at our most vulnerable time and for that we will be forever grateful.

From my first conversation with Sarah, I knew I was in safe and loving hands. Her gentle and wise approach guided me towards understanding and choosing the birth I wanted to create with my little one. As a first time mom, working with Sarah gave me the confidence to make choices that were true to me.

I first met Sarah on Skype and knew within moments that we were meant to share this experience. Her gentle energy translated into a beautiful, pure, and quietly peaceful birth for us. Sarah guided us through the anxious prenatal moments, and helped my partner and I discover new methods of communication and connection... I will forever remember our experience with Sarah, and feel lucky to have received her generosity during my most vulnerable moments. Our family is appreciative everyday for this precious new child, and we thank Sarah for inviting her into a world filled with love, gentle breath, patience, and positivity.
