Sarah has been part of our practice for a year now but in that time we have spent a lot of time together. I had known her through the birth community and Facebook before that time but had not met her. I met her when she came to buy some midwifery books from me. She mentioned wanting to pursue her dream of midwifery and I mentioned that I taught midwifery classes. She was interested and I told her to e-mail me a proposal. The receipt of that well thought out professional representation of her many skills won me over. After the first few weeks of classes I knew that she would be a wonderful addition to our birth team.
Not only did she excel in class, her homework assignments were exceptional. She was already a doula, taught childbirth education and had a busy service encapsulting placentas. Within a week of becoming an official apprentice she had a wonderful idea of having an informed consent book. She joined the Evidence Birth web site and put together an amazing book on many of the topics that birthing families need to know about and have an opinion on.
She is my rock ( after my family ). She is always available when I need her. She has bought some equipment for her birthing kit that I don't have so we are not lacking in any supplies until I can flesh out my kit.
She is also quickly filling out her PEP process paperwork and I have no doubt she will be a sister midwife in the next year.
She lives with an extended family and her son Atticus in Carthage on a farm.
