Breastfeeding support, Placenta Encapsulation.
Hi, I’m Sarah Lam. I have four beautiful sons and four birth experiences that are as individual as they are. While I was pregnant with my second son, I discovered the role that a doula could play in contributing to a positive birth experience and realised immediately that I was not only passionate about having this for myself, but also providing it for other women and their partners. It was during this time that I discovered the life-enhancing benefits the placenta can offer for post-birth care and trained to be a placenta encapsulator.
I believe that women birth best wherever they are most comfortable, be it at home, hospital, birth centre or canal boat! I actively support the individual choices that each parent-to-be can and should make at this unforgettable time in their lives.
