MEET sarah osborne

Are you ready to add an incredible amount of support & experience to your birth team?! 

I'm in!

As one of the Pacific Northwest's most experienced doulas, I am passionate about helping you achieve your dreams of a peaceful, relaxed, informed, and empowered birth experience (whatever that means to YOU). 

I have been the primary doula at over 485 births and have assisted clients through unmedicated birth, medicated birth, cesarean birth, VBAC birth, VBAMC birth, high anxiety & complex medical birth, home birth, hospital birth, birth center birth, water birth, multiples, stillbirth/infant loss, adoption, surrogacy, moms over 40, high profile clients and have been the primary support person for military clients who have a deployed partner. 

I'd love to hear from you so we can schedule a time to chat about your upcoming birth! 

tidbits about sarah...

sarah's training

STARBUCKS... it's a real issue! My favorite drink is a black & white mocha. I did just get a Nespresso and I'm learning to try and replicate it at home...we shall see...

I'm a vocalist and I LOVE all kinds of music! I sing at church, weddings, memorial services, women's events, etc. I was an "original" Adele fan and I've seen her live in concert three times.

DISNEY...need I say more?! I LOVE Disneyland!

We have 3 kitties (Dandelion, Josephine and Poppy) and they are my fur babies.

I myself have personally had a medicated birth, an unmedicated birth, an induction, a cesarean, a preemie with a 6 week NICU stay, an manual version for a breech baby along with a host of pregnancy complications.
