The Sage Philosophy
Sage Birth was founded by Jessi Martin and provides Birth and Postpartum Doula services to expecting families in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, in addition to the surrounding areas. The word "sage" takes on many different meanings, but in childbirth, a Sage Birth is a calm and memorable one; the birthing person is confident, well informed, supported, and more than prepared to welcome a new life into the world. I like to make birth a positive, light-hearted experience and encourage families to enjoy labor. It is a birthday party, after all.
Jessi Martin-Birth & Postpartum Doula
I have a passion for being a nurturing and supportive companion for women in the childbearing year. Along with an open heart and a safe space for all individuals, I come to you with DONA International training, a degree in psychology with a special interest in counseling, experience as a care worker on the Labor and Delivery floor of a hospital, and the experience of caring for two children of my own. Contact me to set up a free interview and see if the Sage Birth experience is a good fit for you.
Why Should You Hire a Doula?
Doulas have been shown to decrease the number of interventions performed during the birthing process and produce better outcomes for parents and babies.
I am here to help you advocate for your preferred birthing experience. Whether you choose to birth at home, in a hospital or birthing center, with an epidural or without, I will help you advocate for your choices without judgment.
A Memorable Birth & Postpartum
Bringing a child into the world is one of the most fulfilling and important days in our lives. I am here to make this experience one where the birthing person feels as supported, confident, and empowered as possible. I can also photograph some of these precious moments free of charge. The postpartum experience is also a memorable one, and I strive to help parents enjoy this time to the fullest by providing the support you need and deserve.
"A Doula for every birth." Currently, only 6% of births are accompanied by a doula. Sage Birth's philosophy is that every birthing person deserves a doula, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, gender expression, age, or religion. Please contact me if you or someone you know is in need of a doula and cannot afford one, as there are many options to explore.
