Name: Sarah Sayer.
Services: Birth Doula, Postnatal Doula. Active Birth Teacher.
A bit about me: Hi, I’m Sarah and I live in Bournemouth with my husband and 2 children Lorna (born 2004) and Joe (born 2007). I’m just an ordinary mum who wants to support other women and families and help them to have the best birth and postnatal experience they can. I have always lived in Bournemouth and I love it here, when I’m not working you’ll find me on the beach, at the gym or drinking coffee in Southbourne. Having lived here all my life I have a strong network of family and friends locally, this helps make being a doula possible as there is always someone who can help out when I get the call to a birth and my children are old enough now that I can work Mon-Fri as a postnatal doula.
I started my business Early Days Doula in 2009 and since then I have supported many different families, some twice, on their own personal journeys. For me a big part of my role is in the preparation, building up a relationship of trust, providing knowledge and information and supporting my clients decisions and wishes.
I don’t have an ego, this is about you! For me it’s a privilege to be part of something so special.
I have worked in Bournemouth, Poole, Southampton, Dorchester and Salisbury maternity units as well as attending many homebirths. I own my own professional birth pool and make it available to clients wherever possible.
Although when I started my main focus was for supporting births, in the last few years I have discovered a real passion for postnatal work. I now work regularly as a postnatal doula, helping new families adjust to life with a new baby. I offer a tailored service, a mix of emotional and practical help. I am flexible in my work, happy to roll my sleeves up and do most tasks around the home and I have often helped with older siblings. I have business insurance for my own car and I am happy to be added to your car insurance if it’s easier for your circumstances.
I completed the Nurturing Birth birth and post-natal doula course in 2009. I am a keen member of Doula UK, currently holding the volunteer role of Area Rep for the Dorset region and where possible I attend conferences and study days to further my knowledge. I am also the founder of One Bump or Two, the busy facebook group for parents to support each other in and around the Bournemouth area.
I am fully insured and hold a clean driving license.
