The Person Behind the Name:

I am Sarah, wife, mother of 3 and self-confessed birth junkie. I have been passionate about birth and positive experiences in birth for the past 7 years when I fell pregnant with my eldest. Each of my children has taught me something new about birth and further fuelled my passion, and shaped me into the person that I am today. When I am not talking birth or reading about birth or attending birth, I love getting out in the fresh air and wandering in nature. I especially love being near the sea watching its ebb and flow; maybe because it reminds me of the sensations of birth, who knows!

How can I help you?

I facilitate the Positive Birth Group in Sutton-In-Ashfield, which is a great space to come during your pregnancy to gain more insight and information into how you, too, can have the positive birth that is right for you. I am a doula, trained with Red Tent Doulas. As a doula I can support you and birth family leading up to, during and after the birth and ensure that you have access to all the relevant information in order to make informed choices that are appropriate for you. It is my aim to help you to see the power that you already possess within you for this amazing and sacred event of birth. As a documentary birth and newborn photographer and videographer, my desire is to capture your amazing goddess power and the love that surrounds this very special time in your family’s life and preserve them to be treasured by your family for years to come. The event of birth changes you for the rest of your life and your baby’s entrance into the world and the weeks immediately following deserve their own recognition and documentation. They pass by so quickly and we soon wish we could go back just for one one more. Let me help take you back there to relive those wonderful moments with albums full of images and films artistically put together with fully licensed music. In the post part period, I am able to support your journey in recovery through Placenta Remedies, Closing The Bones and Post Partum doula services. The weeks following the birth involve a lot of changes in the body as it heals from the momentous occasion of birth; harnessing the power of your placenta and its benefits can be a step towards aiding your body naturally to recover fully and in giving you the energy you need to care for your newborn. A good support network around you in those initial weeks is also vital in ensuring that you have the time and space to recover well. If you would like support in those first weeks, then my postpartum doula packages could be the perfect fit for you. I look forward to meeting with you so that you can get to know me in person and working with you to ensure that your birth experience and post part recovery is a wonderful one.  I cover the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire areas as well as some parts of Lincolnshire and Yorkshire.
