Ms Sara Nolan
Services Offered: Labor Support
Location: Brooklyn NY United States
I currently teach personal essay writing, helping young people write the stories of their lives; I also have many years of experience teaching yoga and meditation, and have done immersion in whole heart leadership and communication. I have served as birth partner for a single mom and doula for friends and family, and am retraining with CAPPA (first trained 7 years ago) in order to enter the profession of birth worker fully. I birthed my own son in 2015 by home birth turned emergency caesarean for cord prolapse; and this put me in touch with the uncertainties inherent in labor, as in life, and how trusting our team and our resources makes the difference between embracing the birth and life you have, and getting stuck on what could have been. I am also a mom to two glorious step-sons, my life full of quirky, no-BS young people, books, and an ardent wish to be with other people at some of the most poignant, difficult, transformative moments of their (our) lives. I volunteer my writing services for young people who find me and have a need but not an ability to pay; I also am an application reader for Cooperman Scholars program.
