Sarah Bay's bio

This content was provided by Sarah Bay "History: I've wanted to be a midwife for as long as I can remember. It's not a stretch to say my journey into midwifery began with my own birth. I was born by home birth in the Netherlands, where the majority of births are still with midwives and many take place at home. As a child, I thought all babies were born at home. Only later did I learn from friends and classmates how unique my home birth was. Education and Training: My roots in New Hampshire run deep. I attended Pine Hill Waldorf School and graduated from ConVal High School before attending the University of New Hampshire, where I earned a batchelor of science in Nursing. I live locally in the Monadnock Region, where most of my family still resides. After getting my nursing degree, I worked as a labor and delivery nurse for five years. I worked in a variety of settings, including Darthmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (in Lebanon, NH), Monadnock Community Hospital (in Peterborough, NH), UCLA and Kaiser Permanente hospitals (in Los Angeles, CA), Providence Medical Center (in Everett, WA), and as a homebirth assistant with Cindy Dunleavy, CPM (Southern NH). During this time, I attended hundreds of births and learned through experience many of the technical, labor support, breastfeeding, and postpartum skills needed for full scope midwifery care. I also built relationships with many local physicians and nurses, and gained a solid understanding of the values and procedures of the hospital setting. These experiences have strengthened my commitment to evidence-based medicine and help me anticipate and prepare for the unexpected. I returned to school and earned a Masters of Nursing in 2010 from the University of Washington, where I spent most of my clinical time in out of hospital settings, including two birth center practices and a solo midwifery practice. I began my own full scope solo midwifery practice shortly after the arrival of my own daughter, delivered in the care of a midwife at home in Peterborough."

What People Say About Sarah Bay, APRN
Sarah returned my calls and emails promptly. She took me on time, had already reviewed my records, and called me by my name. That is not often found these days. I feel very safe in her care. She is an exemplary of the way our health care should be.

My pregnancy and birth experience with Sarah was nothing short of amazing. As a former ICU nurse, I have seen medical situations at their scariest, so many people in my life were surprised by my choice to have a home birth; the truth is though, I have never felt more comfortable and safe.

With my first daughter I had her in a hospital and even though it all went fine and healthy I was still interested in home birth style but was afraid to make that step. So when I got pregnant the second time I decided to look up home birth and found Sarah Bay online. After meeting her with pretty...Read More
