Sarah Baughman, CD(DONA), CPD(CAPPA)
An experienced and Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, Sarah offers a unique kind of support that compliments the care given by a primary care provider (OB, Nurse, Midwife) during the perinatal time. She gives non-clinical support devoting herself to the physical, emotional and informational needs and comfort of her clients.
She is skilled in the use of natural comfort measures, has an extensive knowledge and education around the physiology of pregnancy and birth and is able to provide customized care based on this knowledge. She believes that her clients are fully able to self determine and fosters a space for them to be able to act as their own advocates.
She accompanies her clients with an intersectional and inclusive approach to Birth Work and remains trusting of her client’s abilities to make decisions that suit themselves and their families. She supports with an open heart and mind, listening and responding to individual client needs. Sarah passionately believes in a person’s fundamental right to their bodily autonomy. She supports all reproductive choices and outcomes spanning the Full Spectrum from birth, to elective abortion, to relinquishment, to adoption and beyond.
Sarah will steadily, calmly and kindly accompany and support you on whatever path you choose as you navigate this most meaningful transition.
