My name is Sara and I’m a doula and yoga teacher based in Hackney. My journey as a doula began two years ago as an organic continuation of my work as a pregnancy yoga teacher. Having had a traumatic birth experience with my first baby, I became passionate about the prospect of empowering women to have a positive birth by offering emotional and practical support during pregnancy and labour.
Giving birth is one of the most life-changing experiences you will ever go through, but in today’s medical system many women find it hard to have a positive and inspiring birth. Whether this is your first baby or you have children already, every birth is different and deserves to be treated with respect. I strongly believe that any birth (medicated or not, at home or in a hospital) can be empowering if you feel listened to and respected in your choices.
As your doula I will support you unconditionally and without judgement. My role is to hold the space for you and your partner, and to stand by your side through this very special time to make sure you feel safe during pregnancy, birth and the early days of motherhood. My hope is that by making mindful choices during pregnancy, you will have an empowered birth.

“Sara is a deeply sensitive, intuitive person who relates on a very intimate level. I felt that she met me at every turn and gave wise counsel every time. In Sara I had a constant ally – she helped me to stay positive and to make my own decisions.
She was very careful and considerate with the midwives too – never overstepped the mark with them. At the birth, she was as excited as we were. It really was a magical experience and one that I was thrilled to share with her” - Tess
“Sara is very calm and supportive. I appreciated her relaxed attitude, which I thought would be essential during the birth. She was also non-judgemental when it came to my birth choices which I really appreciated. I also liked that she was a yoga instructor. The class she gave me as part of the package was great” - Kelly
