Hi, I am

Sarah Moore

I work with families before, during, and after the births of their babies.

About Me

I came to this work after the births of my two children.  While pregnant I was consumed with curiosity about the changes in my body, the broader acceptance of the medical model of birth, and, ultimately, the transformative quality of the birth experience. That curiosity translated into lots of reading, research, and discussions with people in the birth community and eventually becoming certified to teach and support women during their births. Up to that point, upon graduation from Brown University, I had been teaching poetry and performance in public schools, creating new work with an experimental theatre company, and finishing a Master’s in playwriting from NYU. Almost 15 years later, I am proud to be a childbirth educator, labor and postpartum support doula, and certified lactation educator counselor. I have attended over 175 births and supported even more families as a postpartum doula. It is so nice to be able to say that I truly enjoy my work and I love what I do.

Do you have a question about your pregnancy, birth, or postpartum period?

Things families have said...

We can’t imagine a more perfect classroom setting and teaching style for our birthing classes. Sarah’s wisdom and experience (personally and professionally) was enhanced by her general warmth and real openness. She created a space in which we could really accept that anything could happen with the birth and that it’s all equally ok. She was realistic and empowering. When Jo went into labor and through the birth process, many of the little details Sarah mentioned guided me: from the way I interacted with the hospital staff to how I supported Jo. I felt excited but not overwhelmed or worried ­ –if Sarah’s class had been my only prep for being a birthing partner, I would have been just fine. And having such small classes was wonderful! We honestly felt more like we were going over to a friend’s house for Sunday coffee than learning about birth and babies. We felt really comfortable and able to say anything in the classes, even to ask dumb questions. We were surprised to find ourselves genuinely sad when our last class was over. It wasn’t just a birthing class, it was time spent with wonderful people, who (with their babies) remain our friends!
