The first Birth Words class of its kind, this introductory workshop for birthworkers guides you through a variety of videos, activities, and opportunities for reflection as you consider the power--and complexity--of your words.

Hi, I’m Sara.


As an educator and mother, I've always believed that our words matter. The way we speak to each other shapes our perspectives, our experiences, and even our identities. With a bachelor's degree in education, I decided to further pursue my love of language through a master's degree in applied linguistics. Unexpectedly, my life was then forever changed through the incredible VBAC of my son. I felt called to birth work and became a doula. For a time, I separately pursued these two interests: birth and words.

Then, one night, I awoke suddenly with the phrase "birth words" running through my mind. From that point forward, I fused my two passions. Through Birth Words, I invite expectant parents and birth professionals to closely consider the words you use when talking about pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. Through my work, I invite you to identify and draw strength from beneficial language and dismiss or re-frame dis-empowering language.
