Sara

SarahSara has returned to the Bay after 2 years of midwifery study in Texas. There, she completed a rigorous clinical program, attending births at one of the highest volume birth center in the United States. After graduating from Maternidad La Luz, she began attending home births and working at Luna Tierra and The Retreat birth centers. She is very excited to be back in the Bay Area and offer her 6 years of reproductive justice services to the families there. Her specialties and passions include chest/breastfeeding, mental health in pregnancy and postpartum, herbalism and pelvic floor health and wellness.
She returns with the hope of supporting new families in the postpartum period, offering her breastfeeding expertise, nutritional guidance and midwifery skills for clients needing support and feedback during the early days with a new baby. Sara considers herself a trauma-informed provider and also offers a compassionate ear for the unpacking of difficult birth experiences and holding the complexity of new parenting, which can be so joyful and so challenging at the same time.
