Hello! My name is Sarah Murray. I am a Registered Nurse and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I am also a childbirth educator, yoga teacher, and mother of two. I provide holistic prenatal education and postpartum support. My birth work started 20 years ago as a labor & delivery nurse, high-risk obstetrical home care nurse and hospital based lactation consultant. These experiences combine with my personal motherhood journey and devoted practice of yoga to fuel a passion for holistic health and birth education that put the pre & perinatal experiences of the pregnant person and the baby at the center. I’ve had additional training and education in Spinning Babies®, Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTS), and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

Childbirth Classes

Prepare for the passage

At birth, there is a passage from pregnant person to parent, from maiden to mother, from womb to world, from person/couple to family. Modern birth education and practices often lose this focus as birth has become more medicalized. Passage childbirth classes were born out of a desire for new and expectant parents to feel empowered and deeply honored as they navigate through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.

Class topics include:

  • Pregnancy Wellness (Mindset, Movement & Nourishment)
  • Physiology and Language of Labor & Birth
  • Comfort Measures and Coping in Labor and Beyond, Partner Support
  • Understanding Birth Options (Interventions, Medications, & Cesarean Birth)
  • Postpartum Care, Recovery & Planning

This class is for you if:

  • You’re planning to birth in a hospital, birthing center, or at home
