Sage Fanucchi-Funes

Professional Birth and Postpartum Doula

* Currently transitioning into a new role as a midwifery student starting June 2019. Will be providing postpartum services in Humboldt County until then. Thank you Providence and the greater Rhode Island community for being my home these last six years *

"As first-time parents, we knew very little about pregnancy, labor or babies. As the due date neared, we realized that we not only wanted but needed to work with someone who could educate us and support us in having a positive birth experience. Sage provided that and so much more. She went above and beyond. She was very responsive in answering all of our questions and even met us at the hospital for what turned out to be a false alarm. When early labor began, she came over right away and jumped into action. She took care of both of us. She eased our worries and fears. She accurately advised us when to call our midwife. She coached my partner through supporting me. Once we arrived at the hospital, we could tell immediately that she was well liked and respected by midwives, nurses and hospital staff. Her knowledge of hospital policy was also reassuring especially when it came time to get an epidural. She made sure we understood everything that was happening. We felt well taken care of and safe."


"She taught us a lot about the options we had regarding birth preferences and provided us with wonderful support through the preparation, labor, delivery and beyond. My husband and I wanted a calm informed presence and that is exactly what she was."
