Who is ElderFlower Doula

The person behind ElderFlower Doula is Sarah Alicia Elder. This mother of four, can’t stay still and her love for learning has opened up many different career paths. Her sense of community has led her to different fields within human services. Now, Sarah is putting it all together to help families in New Westminster. She is a birth doula offering support and resources for pre-pregnancy to postpartum and everything in-between. Sarah can help make your parenthood journey a memorable experience with unique artistic souvenirs. With specialized training in breast/chest feeding, difficult births and loss, Sarah provides an all-encompassing perinatal doula service.

Partnered up with local doula Nikki of Royal City Birth. She is my first on-call for back up and we work close together helping to create easier access to education, tools and support in our community. We work individually but support eachother by covering vacation times, when we are sick and family emergencies. If you would like the support of both of us we do offer packages where your prenatal visits and postpartum are done by both. We offer some unique services that differ from eachother but our over all philosophies and support when it comes to birth is very similar.
