My name is Kim Sabin, and I am a Birth & Postpartum Doula, Breastfeeding Educator, and a Bereavement Specialist serving the Washington County area. My husband and I live with our three wonderful children in the city of Forest Grove.
I have always been passionate about helping women through pregnancy and birth. Even as a young girl I was fascinated with childbirth and babies. I became a candy striper at the age of 9. From that point on I have always wanted to work with and help women as they give birth. I started babysitting at the age of 12. I loved babysitting babies the most. I love listening to women as they share their birth stories. Each story is so different and inspiring.
I am a Birth Arts International trained Doula. I cannot speak highly enough about their fantastic training and certification program. I am training to be a Birth and Postpartum Doula, Trained Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula, Breastfeeding Educator, and Bereavement Specialist. I have also been trained in Babywearing.
I believe everyone has a different idea of what a perfect birth is. When a woman feels safe, listened to, and respected in her birthing experience, she will feel empowered in that birth. When a woman makes informed decisions for herself and her baby; she will feel empowered as a mother.
