Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula
(Birth Arts International)
Hello there! My name is Sarah Thiel, I am a birth and postpartum doula certified through Birth Arts International. I am continuing my studies in lactation and herbalism. I am also a mama of two wonderful kiddos, an organic gardener, and hardworking homesteader. My journey with birth work started well over a decade ago with the birth of my children, one hospital birth and one home birth. Since then I have been attending births as a midwife's assistant. During this time I witnessed the incredible strength and power of birthing people and the need for supportive care. I became an advocate for reproductive rights and informed birth choices. My passion was ignited so now I have continued on to birth and postpartum doula work. I believe with compassionate support and informed care birthing people and their families can create the birth and postpartum experience they are longing for.
I am honored to serve and offer unbiased support to birthing people and their families in El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer, and Nevada county areas during this transformative time in their lives.
