Sarah Doyle, LICSW, LCCE, CD(DONA), CLC

I'm Sarah Doyle, Auburn's joyful doula.

My doula career started with my passion for all things birth and babies and continued because of my love for new mothers.

Years ago, as I prepared for my pregnancy, I discovered the gap between the support that growing families need, and what they actually receive. I decided to combine my passion for newborns and their parents, with my skill set as a clinical social worker, to become a doula.

Now I bridge the knowledge and support gap so more families can have the experience they desire. Every parent deserves to feel prepared, heard, and confident. I’m honored to be Auburn's birth coach and baby-whisperer, making sure families receive the care they deserve.

A little about me...

When I decided to become a mother, I was a little too confident in my baby-whispering abilities – so fate (and the fertility specialist) got the last laugh by giving us twins!

Brandon and I are overjoyed (and overwhelmed) to be caring for our two-year-olds; Jocelyn the headstrong tiny dancer, and Elise the ever-singing bookworm.

You may run into us at Auburn's nature preserve, the brewery, practicing yoga, drinking matcha lattes, strolling around Auburn listening to audiobooks, making lists, painting, and playing board games.

What has shaped me as a doula...

  • I’m a twin mom. I’ve seen and done it all, day and night, times two.
  • I’ve been a doula since 2017 and have supported over 70 families.
  • I’ve personally experienced loss, infertility and IVF, twin pregnancy, two vaginal births, postpartum and newborn days, parenting a child through surgeries, and breastfeeding twins for 2 years and counting.
  • I have supported mothers through all different types of birth (home birth, hospital birth, medication-free, spontaneous labor, inductions, cesareans, VBACs).
  • I've worked alongside a variety of health professionals including 17 OBs and 2 midwives and have experienced birth at 8 hospitals as well as many homes.
  • My background as a licensed clinical social worker prepared me to work with families struggling with mental health.

Every parent deserves to feel prepared, heard, and confident. I’m honored to be their birth-keeper and baby-whisperer, making sure they receive the care they deserve.
