My name is Sarah - I teach specialised YOGA and am a BIRTH and POSTPARTUM Doula based in Lake Macquarie. I am experienced in all settings (home, birth-centre, hospital) and all types of birth (physiological, assisted, planned gentle cesareans). I travel between Belmont, Newcastle, Maitland and the Hunter region to support families.
I don’t teach birth, I help women remember
I offer prenatal yoga along with conscious birth preparation to assist parents in cultivating the tools necessary to bring their babies into the world healthy and empowered.
Your body, your baby, your choice
We are called to be the authority in our pregnancy. This is a process of trust and opening to the process. I provide a calm and reassuring presence in labour to remind you of your birth-rights. I will be a communication bridge for you in birth to advocate when necessary.
My role is to encourage, educate and support
I provide balanced research and resources to assist families in understanding their options. I am a sounding-board through each trimester so that you feel confident navigating the vast and often perplexing birth landscape, whether inside the system or outside. I create beautiful, warm and welcoming birth spaces for my clients to feel safe and supported.
When a baby is born, a mother is too
I believe birth is one of the most transformational experiences in a person's life. Pregnancy changes the female body at a cellular level. For many, this expansion is a deeply spiritual endeavour and rite of passage; a voyage between dimensions. I am passionate about integrating ancient feminine wisdom with modern technique to guide women towards positive births, full of presence and connection.
I am a mother to two (small-ish) humans and at this time only work with two birthing clients per calendar month. It is never too early (or too late) to start a conversation about your birth and postpartum journey.
