In the News
Moving to Israel, marrying and pregnant with my first, I took a "natural" childbirth course. Of course I wanted to be as prepared as possible. A friend and teacher assisted me through the labor, making a big difference in my positive feelings after the birth. What wasn't so positive was the healing that had to be done to my perineum floor. I was told in my class that first time moms needed scissors to "help" get the baby out. Little did I know until years later, this was not the case.
Twelve years later, moving to Jerusalem and attending my first doula training, I was on fire to inform women of truths in the birthing process. I opened many libraries, created CDs from Reb' Yitti Neustadt and became a doula trainer.
Sarah's inspirational and informative books: Special Delivery, More Special Deliveries and A Doula’s Journey; Into the World of Birth, serve to provide women with strength as they enter motherhood.

A Doula’s Journey
IN THIS CAPTIVATING chronicle of a doula, Sarah Goldstein reminisces about being on call to serve women before, during and after labor. There are no breaks or time off in this profession, especially while having attended over 1500 births! It is a memoir that both the novice and the informed will be unable to put down.
Often torn between her life’s calling, and her family, Sarah is further challenged by being in a ‘sandwich generation’. She is raising six children while caring for her degenerating Alzheimer’s mother. Yet with family support at the most trying of times, she experiences both the trials and triumphs of facilitating mothers in bringing their newborns into the world. (Click here to read an excerpt.)

Sensitive and insightful, and often funny, these true-life stories illustrate how faith in G-d and the support of our family and friends can turn challenging moments into positive, memorable experiences.
