Hello! I'm Sage.
I am a doula because I believe that all pregnant people deserve care that affirms autonomy and respects all during such a transformative moment, regardless of any identities they hold.
Originally from California, I first heard of the term reproductive justice when I was 15 years old as a peer educator at the local Planned Parenthood. Since then I have been increasingly interested in the ways in which doula care intersects with birth and reproductive justice.
I am a queer and trans friendly provider who has experience and training in LGBT healthcare. I am passionate about racial and class justice. I believe that the fight for justice begins at birth. Birth Justice exists when women and transfolks are empowered during pregnancy, labor, childbirth and postpartum to make healthy decisions for themselves and their babies. I believe that doula care can help achieve such justice on an individual level.
