Full Spectrum: doula care for all your reproductive health needs.

Sarah is a reproductive advocate with a mission. For more than half a decade she has been supporting people experiencing all pregnancy outcomes and knows everyone should have a right to bodily autonomy and reproductive freedom. As a full spectrum doula, she holds space for people to find their voice in the midst of their decision making and knows that they are in charge of their care. 


"Your power is your radical self. Find it."
-Aya Chebbi

Sarah comes from a background in herbalism. She studied at The Florida School of Holistic Living and brings that knowledge to her clients by offering the use of herbs before, during and after someone's pregnancy experience. She is also a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist.

A triad of doula care, herbalism and placenta encapsulation makes Sacred Transitions a one stop shop!

What is a Full Spectrum Doula anyway?

Read about our sliding scale policy.

Full Spectrum Doula

More often than not a Doula is thought to be a person who supports someone during labor. A Full Spectrum Doula realizes that a baby isn't always the outcome of pregnancy. Oftentimes, a pregnancy can end in a miscarriage, stillbirth or termination. Full Spectrum Doula's bring the doula model of care to all pregnancy experiences and outcomes.

Sacred Transitions views pregnancy and birth as part of a full spectrum of reproductive and/or parenting experiences that includes (and is by no means limited to) fertility, pregnancy prevention, miscarriage and loss, abortion, surrogacy, adoption, conception through medical technologies, and the postpartum period. As doulas, we provide educational, informational, physical, and emotional support for all of these choices and outcomes.

Full Spectrum Doulas are reproductive rights advocates who support people in making informed decisions. We believe that every person knows what is best for themselves and we want to support them through their process. A Full Spectrum Doula believes that their work is not just in childbirth, but that it covers all pregnancy outcomes.

AT SACRED TRANSITIONS WE BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES. WE RECOGNIZE THE CHAOS THAT OUR CURRENT ECONOMIC SYSTEM HAS CREATED, AND ENVISION ANOTHER MODEL. HOWEVER, EVEN AS WE WORK TOWARD A NEW MODEL IN BUILDING COMMUNITY, FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE, AND CREATING ACCOUNTABLE INSTITUTIONS WE REALIZE WE ARE NOT THERE YET. THE SLIDING SCALE IS ONE WAY OF ACKNOWLEDGING DIFFERENCES IN WEALTH, INCOME, COSTS, AND PRIVILEGE AND ACTIVELY ADDRESS THE ECONOMIC DISPARITIES IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND SOCIETY. THE SLIDING SCALE IS A WAY TO SAY NO TO THE WAY THINGS ARE AND YES TO THE WAY THEY CAN BE WHILE PROVIDING SUPPORT FOR ALL.

WHEN I PAY AT THE BOTTOM, I KNOW I AM LETTING MY COMMUNITY HOLD ME AND SUPPORT ME. ALL OF THESE ARE ACCEPTABLE WAYS OF PARTICIPATING. I RECOGNIZE THAT SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE LOW END OF THE SCALE. PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT.

​THE SCALE IS INTENDED TO BE A MAP, INVITING EACH OF US TO TAKE INVENTORY OF OUR FINANCIAL RESOURCES AND LOOK DEEPER AT OUR LEVELS OF PRIVILEGE. IT IS A WAY TO CHALLENGE OUR CAPITALIST SOCIETY WE LIVE IN AND WORK TOWARDS ECONOMIC JUSTICE ON A LOCAL LEVEL. WHILE WE ASK YOU TO TAKE THESE FACTORS INTO CONSIDERATION, PLEASE DON’T STRESS ABOUT IT. PAY WHAT FEELS RIGHT. WE WILL NOT ASK QUESTIONS OR QUIZ YOU ON YOUR PAYMENT CHOICES!

placenta encapsulation

Benefits

Clients often report that consuming their placenta postpartum had many benefits, including promoting lactation, replenishing iron stores, and speeding up their healing process.  

​The known ingredients that give the placenta its healing properties are as follows:

•Gonadotrophin: the precursor to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
•Prolactin: promotes lactation.
•Oxytocin: for pain and bonding; produced during breastfeeding to facilitate bonding of mother 
and infant. In pharmaceutical form this is a very addictive drug because it promotes a feeling of connectedness with others.
•Thyroid stimulating hormone: boosts energy and helps recovery from stressful events.
•Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks energy stores.
•Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infections.
•Prostaglandins: anti-inflammatory.
•Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum condition.
•Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound healing.
•Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections.
