About Me

1A.jpg

 

 

 

My name is Sarah. I am a cesarean mom and a two time VBAC mom residing in Omaha, NE. I have been married to my husband for 10 years and we have three beautiful children. My personal birth and postpartum experiences changed the course of my life and set me down the path to becoming a doula. I am currently pursuing certification through CAPPA as both a Birth Doula and a postpartum doula.

I understand the importance of the day a person sees their child for the first time. It ranks among the most memorable days of a person's life. How a person gives birth and they way they are treated during labor and delivery matters so much.

My role as a doula is to support the birth plan my families design and desire. I am supportive of people laboring and delivering where they feel most comfortable, whether that be at a hospital or birth center. I do not speak for my clients, but rather empower them to advocate for themselves.

I bring that same support and commitment to the families that I support as an antepartum and postpartum doula. Preparing for a new little one’s arrival while on bedrest can be challenging, and an antepartum doula helps during this stressful time to lessen the burden. As a postpartum doula, I will help ease the fourth trimester transition to help parents feel confident in their new or expanded role.

I am also a VBAC Educator teaching a class to prepare VBAC families for their birth. My VBAC class is designed to help VBAC hopeful families gain knowledge and confidence for their desired birth. My support doesn’t end when the class is over as I remain available for questions through my class participants delivery.

I am affiliated with Greatest Adventure Doula Services for both birth and postpartum doula services.

Client Reviews

“Through pregnancy, labor, and birth there are so many decisions you have to make. Deciding to have a doula is one of the best ones we made! I do not know what I would have done without her knowledge and support. My labor was not an easy one but Sarah was there to talk me through things and help me be as comfortable as possible. If you are considering hiring a doula you should, especially if it’s Sarah! — Cara S.

Sarah was an incredible support for my husband and I throughout our pregnancy and birth experience! I felt safe with her and respected by her, never judged or uncomfortable in her presence. She made it easy for me to relax and feel my way through the birth process, with gentle encouragement and reassurance when I needed it. She thought of all the little things we were too busy to consider - asking the nurses for a birth ball, getting me warm chicken broth, bringing my husband a coffee when he ran out. She suggested different positions and options as I labored and helped me feel encouraged when things started to feel out of control. She helped me be brave enough to listen to my intuition and advocate for myself and my needs as the process unfolded. I truly believe that hiring Sarah was one of the key things that led to our successful VBAC.” — Kelly K.


Best of luck to you with your pregnancy and birth!“I absolutely could not have done this successfully without her! She helped me with my birth plan and made sure the doctors and nurses understood and honored my wishes for my birth. Thank you for stepping in and supporting me on this journey. I highly recommend choosing her as a doula"!” — Ayana J.

“Sarah was such a blessing to use during our pregnancy and throughout our delivery. She was supportive of our choices and how we wanted our birth to unfold. She was a great advocate during delivery, for both my husband and I. She never pushed her own agenda and was a great addition to my care team. I am so thankful she is forever a part of my daughter’s birth story. I highly recommend Sarah and the excellent service she provides.” — Stephanie M.

“If it wasn’t for Sarah, my husband and I would not have gotten the birth experience we had. She was amazing and everything we could’ve asked for in a doula” — Sabrina L."

“We are so thankful to have had Sarah be our doula for our successful VBAC. She was very flexible with us, knowledgeable about different techniques and things, and supportive. Because my husband and I are both fairly soft spoken, it was nice to have her as sort of a devil’s advocate to really point out pros and cons of anything that came up. She was always sure to remind us of that whatever we choose to do is our decision completely, but it was just nice to have an extra voice to talk things over with. Having a doula was incredibly well worth the money.” — Hylarie M.
