I've worked with babies, children, and parents for over 25 years.
I'm currently badged at Baylor Medical Center Frisco working with neonatals on the maternity floor in postpartum and NICU as an Infant ABR (Auditory Brain Response) screener.
I'm so glad you're here and honored you want to know more about me! My name is Sarah. I'm the owner of The Modern Day Tribe. My passion is to support families before and after the birth of their babies.
The vision of serving families came from my belief in Christ and his love for all people. My work and decisions are always led in prayer. I'm a wife and mom of three sweet happy kids. I've been a mom for over 14 years! I consider myself a life-long learner, and I've definitely learned that being a parent is not easy. I believe parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world, so why wouldn't we want to go through this time with our tribe by our side!? I breast fed all three of my babies different lengths of time. I was in different situations and levels of experience with each, so each time I nursed longer and felt more comfortable and confident with each of my babies. I have also formula fed my first two in combination with breastfeeding, so I've had personal experience with both breastfeeding and formula feeding. I exclusively breastfed my third baby for 16 months. I've had personal experience with working outside the home when my first two babies were in childcare, also being a stay at home mom with my third child. Because I've had those experiences with both working outside the home and staying at home with my kids, I fully appreciate and respect the hard work it takes for both aspects of parenting! I've had a lot of help at different times after we brought our babies home from the hospital, and I've had no support at times. This has given me a strong motivation to help moms that don't have the help they need to recover and enjoy their new baby. I know first hand how beneficial nonjudgmental efficient guidance has been for me and my babies.
In my work I provide evidence-based information. I advocate for what is best for mom and baby. What I hope to provide in The Modern Day Tribe blog, my work as a postpartum doula and as a parent mentor is guidance for parents to make informed decisions that are best for their family. I will coach you and your family through a stressful time due to lack of sleep, difficult decisions, and lack of optimal nutrition. This once in a lifetime occasion just after your baby is home ought to be a time of joy and recovery!
I structure my doula work based on your family's goals. I focus on nurturing mom and baby, their bond, health, and overall well being. I guide parents to be their best selves. I strive for you and your family to be in a position of sustainability for when my time with you is complete.
As your doula, I would be honored to be a part of your tribe mentoring, praying for and guiding you to feel your best and to lead a happy healthy family!
