Sarah Butterfly, Midwife

Sarah believes that people are capable of being responsible for their own health care including getting informed and making healthcare choices that are relevant to their life; that comprehensive midwifery care should be accessible to every body; that pregnancy, birth and postpartum rarely require intervention; that the midwife's job is to be a guide and guardian of a safe and normal birth process and to provide the most current, eviddenced based care, only intervening when needed; and that people have the opportunity to transform through their birthing process.

​

In addition to walking her path as a midwife, Sarah's study and work has always centered around the health, well-being and rights of people who identify as women. Her prior studies include a BA in Women and Gender Studies and BA in Anthropology, as well as a Masters of Public Health Administration. She has worked as a birth doula, certified breastfeeding counselor, registered yoga teacher, and non-profit administrator.
