Birth Doula and Registered Nurse
Hi, I’m Sara, owner of Atlanta Birth Doula. I'm a mom of two beautiful little girls. Being a parent has been the most challenging and rewarding thing I have ever done. I can say without a doubt that my girls have made me a better person. I am more compassionate, understanding, forgiving, and loving because of them. I enjoy helping others find the same fulfillment in parenthood that I have and that starts with your pregnancy and birth.
I’m a trained birth doula as well as an emergency room nurse. I’ve been working in the health care field for more than a decade. These experiences give me a unique perspective into both the medical field and holistic medicine. I use my background to help women navigate through their pregnancy feeling confident in their choices and birth team.
While I’ve always held a passion for women’s health, the birth of my two daughters really brought home my desire to help women before, during, and after their pregnancies. I believe that women should have the tools to advocate for themselves; it’s my mission to help you gain those tools and the confidence to use them.
Birth Doula Services:
A prenatal visit where we will discuss your birth plan, the different techniques I can utilize to assist and comfort you during labor, plans for bottle or breast, postpartum support, and anything else you’d like to talk about.
Labor Support: I will be on call from 38 weeks until birth. I can provide labor support via text, phone call, FaceTime, or Skype, and will attend to you when you are ready for me to be there in person. I will remain with you for a couple of hours after the baby is born to help you get settled, initiate first feeding, and promote bonding. I will leave when you and your family are ready for quiet time.
I will come for a postpartum visit when you are at home. During this visit, we can discuss your birth, talk about how you and baby are doing, and I can even watch the baby while you take some time for self-care.
Additional services based on an hourly rate:
Doctor Visits: It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at the doctor’s office.
Support Classes: I can attend any birth preparation classes with you.
Baby Registry: Creating a baby registry can be daunting, especially if you are high-risk and stuck on bed rest. I can help create your perfect list because I am a baby registry guru.
