Hello, I'm Sarah!

I am a queer doula based in Austin, Tx. My pronouns are she/ her. I support birthing folks and families in birth, postpartum, abortion, adoption, miscarriage, and loss. 


I first heard the term 'doula' when I was a care worker for a family in my undergraduate program around '17. Since then I have been reading and gathering more information about the birth world. I looked into many training programs and decided upon Doula Training International (DTI). 


​I received my undergraduate degree in Social Work with two minors in Women & Gender Studies and Psychology. I then began working in mental health in the crisis department for a few years before continuing my education at the University of Texas for my Master's in Social Work where I am currently as well. 


I work with Giving Austin Labor Support (GALS) and Austin Doula Care as a birth and postpartum doula.

My practice is rooted in reproductive justice, informed consent, antiracism, gender affirming care, and overall just showing up for clients in ways we agree work. I try to be very intentional with my words and actions to ensure the best support possible. 

Please reach out with any questions about me, letting me get to know you, or chat about any services I can provide for you or your family. Pregnancy and parenthood are wild rides. I would love to work in community with you.

I am thankful that you're here. I can't wait to meet you!

 

Trainings & Certifications

I received my Full Spectrum Doula Certification from DTI, this includes birth, postpartum, and reproductive justice. This training went over practical skills, diversity, and so much more.

Trainings -

  • Gemstone: Homebirth For Doulas

  • ​Fetal Positioning: A conversation between the gestational carrier and baby.

I'm starting my Childbirth Education Facilitator's training in a few months with Cornerstone.

I received my Placenta Encapsulator Certification from BEST Doula. A majority of Encapsulators have their Bloodborne Pathogen and food handler's cert. but are not actually certified in the practice. While I don't believe having a certification is always necessary for certain practices, this is something I am very grateful for doing.
