Doula

I am currently only offering doula services to families that have hired me as their birth photographer. The doula add-on fee is $400.

Childbirth is an amazing experience that is not only unique to the woman but also from labor to labor. My goal is to support the choices you have made with your partner and primary care provider. I provide resources and educational materials and will share my thoughts and opinions with you, but understand this is your birth experience and your choices will be respected at all times.

I specialize in working with women that want to attempt a VBAC or know they are going to have a scheduled cesarean section.

As your doula I will provide comprehensive services including the following:
• Unlimited assistance by telephone or email
• Two prenatal visits to: Help develop birth plan. Discuss how each member of the birth team will work together.
• Continual support during birth
• One to two hours of assistance immediately after birth
• Assistance with breastfeeding
• 24-hour phone assistance two weeks after birth
• One in-home postpartum visit
• Birth photography or Brand New Sessions available for an additional fee

I offer all my clients the option of an online gift registry that allows friends and family to contribute to the birth experience you want!

  • "We are so thankful for you and for your work. You have touched our family with your beautiful skill set – the images you captured are fantastic! Your demeanor and caring presence helped us more than you probably know. Thank you for the time you devoted to our family and to K’s birth. These images are truly priceless!"
  • "I do not have words to describe the joy and steadiness Sarah brought to our birth. She is the most in-tune, compassionate, encouraging photographer/doula I've ever had the privilege to be around. Have her at your birth. It will change your life!"
  • "Sarah is amazing! She was my birth photographer over a year ago, but she has been part of my family ever since. As a photographer myself, I can tell you that I wouldn't trust the special moments of my birth story to anyone else. Sarah is respectful in the birthing room and never once was in the way of what I, or the hospital staff, needed to do. Her photographs told the complete story of my birth from start to finish. I love that Sarah works on call so that no matter what time we went into labor she was there. Sarah has a young family of her own and you can tell that the miracle of birth is one that she holds very near and dear. She won't let you down and I can't recommend her enough!"
  • "She is an amazing photographer and we love working with her! She was at the birth of my daughter and again when she turned one. She will be the one I call when we have #2!"
  • "Sarah was there for the birth of my second as a doula and photographer. She was indispensable, as a doula, helping me through a questionable decision making moment. She was able to capture the beauty of my birth, the precious moments with my husband and daughter, and the love we all felt in that moment. I recommend Sarah to all my clients for photography. Her photos are exquisite, and REAL. You will also love HER. She is a wonderfully caring, fun women who is truly in love with her work."
  • "As the founder of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers I am honored to have shared Sarah's work with our members and fan base. Her work is beautiful and her clients are so very lucky!"
