Sarah Lovell is a Registered Nurse, midwifery student and experienced doula who came to this work with a background in holistic health. Having managed natural health clinics since 2005, Sarah passionately believes in the body’s innate abilities and loves empowering others to have the same faith in themselves.
Beyond doula training, she has completed additional courses in breastfeeding support, Acupressure for Pregnancy, Labor & Postpartum as well as Childbirth Education. Teaching the Comprehensive Childbirth Class has been one of the most rewarding additions to my birth work as I get to reach so many families with evidence based information (and a touch of humor) and watch them go on to have beautiful, empowering experiences. She is also the Client Care Coordinator and a birth assistant for Small Things Grow midwifery and is in her second year at Yale School of Nursing, where she is working to become a Certified Nurse Midwife and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. Her love of teaching and mentoring continues as she works as a Teaching Assistant for Yale’s Maternal Newborn class.
A bit of a wandering spirit, Sarah is from Maine but has lived in Boston, Denmark and Vancouver, Canada before arriving in Inwood. “Our society bombards us with such negative images of birth, it has been such a blessing for me to be able to tell someone, ‘I know you can do this.’ and see them do something they never thought they could.”
