About Sarah McMoyler, RN

Sarah McMoyler, RN, BSN, has seen over 25,000 Bay Area expectant parents come through her classroom doors for her signature McMoyler Method™ course. As a Labor & Delivery nurse, mother of two, childbirth educator, and triathlete, she views ‘Birth and Parenting as Extreme Sports!’ Just as athletes prepare for their event, so must expectant parents be ready for the biggest event of their lives.

McMoyler Method™ was developed based on Sarah’s experience with couples arriving in Labor & Delivery completely unprepared, not knowing how to cope with pain or how to communicate with the healthcare team. She developed the first condensed, childbirth class that is relevant to today’s busy, expectant parents, helping them establish realistic goals necessary to navigate effectively through labor & delivery. McMoyler Method™ features a medically-based, factual approach, with Sarah’s unique ability to entertain while educating. She involves Partners throughout the class, to impress upon them that their support throughout labor & delivery and at home is vital to the overall success of becoming a new family.

Her book The Best Birth: Your Guide to the Safest, Healthiest, Most Satisfying Labor and Delivery, brought national attention to her Bay Area classes with individuals and hospitals across the country asking for McMoyler Methodology. The Best Birth Online Class, powered by McMoyler Method™ was produced so that expectant parents can prepare for birth and parenting wherever they live. Doctors, midwives, and hospitals are choosing The Best Birth online class as a great option for their busy, expectant patients to receive prenatal education in the comfort of their homes.


When the time came to have our baby, my wife and I had to make a lot of decisions under pressure. Sarah’s help was invaluable; she had us simulate different scenarios before the birth which helped potentially confusing and overwhelming situations seem familiar. The techniques used in her programs reminded me of the ways my Olympic coaches used to prepare us for the big event.

The Best Birth is unique and magical. My patients who have attended their classes are prepared for all eventualities and uniformly joyous over their birth experience. The partners are comfortable in the delivery suite and fully engaged too.

Pierre and I worked with Sarah before the birth of our first child, and her lessons have continued to benefit us through all of our pregnancies and births. The McMoyler Method prepared us for labor and delivery, reduced our anxieties, and strengthened our connection to each other during the birth. We recommend her approach to anyone who wants to be more engaged and prepared for the wonderful journey of childbirth.
