About me

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. 


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.


It was during my journey as a doula, that I discovered the life-enhancing benefits the placenta can offer for post-birth care and trained to be a placenta encapsulation specialist.  It was only after my own fourth birth that I was able to experience first hand the restorative power of the placenta.  I feel passionate about nurturing (the often neglected) post-natal recovery of both you and your baby.
