Sarah Foster LM(TX), CPM

Sarah is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) serving Eastern, and Central Oklahoma.

She received her training through the Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program and is a licensed midwife (LM) in the state of Texas. She is the current president of the Midwives Society of Oklahoma.

Sarah is dedicated to providing women with evidence based maternity care and strongly believes that a woman is entitled to direct her own care.

“I believe, and research confirms, that childbirth is a safe physiological function, best supported by good nutrition, education and empowerment of the mother, and attentive monitoring by an educated provider. I believe that the health and safety of mother and infant can best be protected when preparation for birth is regarded as a mutual responsibility of client and midwife, and I collaborate with my clients about all care decisions, encouraging mothers to educate themselves about their options so that they may make truly informed choices.”
