Dad as Doula

Father of the baby or your sister, mother, or lover… the point is that this person needs to be equipped to provide support during labor and at home with the baby.

This does not mean that health care professionals: doctors, midwives, nurses, lactation consultants and pediatricians are not needed– it is the TEAM approach that supports her to get through the challenges that accompany labor and newborn parenting!

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.

Sarah McMoyler is a teacher’s teacher. Knowledgeable and compassionate … her approach is highly recommended.

Sarah McMoyler leads the industry in her ability to bring the basics back to birthing with a welcomed combination of accessible practicality and judgement-free advice about today’s options. I applaud her refreshingly modern commitment to the ultimate goal – healthy mom, healthy baby.

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.
