Episode 21: Nurturing Birth and Beyond with Sarah Thorpe

The experience of childbirth is an amazing and beautiful one. It can also be quite overwhelming. One thing that can help make it exponentially better is to hire a doula.  Hiring a doula is like having an experienced travel guide while visiting a foreign country. They can help you and your partner during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.  In this episode of the WHoly Mom Chat, I sit down with Sarah Thorpe, an experienced nurse, Doula, and Childbirth Educator, to discuss the benefits and advantages of having a doula. I also share my personal experience of having a doula while pregnant with my 2nd child. Sarah Thorpe is a Registered Nurse, Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, and Certified Childbirth Educator. She is also a mom, wife, and owner of Nurturing Birth and Beyond Doula Services, which serves the Richmond, VA, area. 

Listen in as we discuss: 

  • Sarah shares how she became a doula and childbirth educator
  • How to choose a doula and what to look for 
  • How does having a doula improve the new mama experience
  • Practical, actionable steps new mamas can take toward their new wellness journey.
