Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist


What I’ll be offering when I come back from Maternity Leave March 2024:  

Placenta Encapsulation - This is a process in which the placenta is inspected, cleaned, sliced & steamed. It is then dehydrated, ground into a powder and placed into vegan gelatin capsules for consumption by the person whom the placenta was birthed from. Utilizing your placenta in the postpartum time may aid in: human milk production, hormone & mood stabilization, pain relief, energy enhancement, iron replenishment and possibly more. All Placenta pills will come with a beautiful Placenta print for you to display in your home & an umbilical cord keepsake. This package is available for $350.


Placenta Prints - Beautiful artwork of your placenta, the one of a kind organ that can only be grown during pregnancy, which nourished your baby in the womb & is completely unique to you! Umbilical cord keepsake included. Stand alone service $100 for a custom detailed print.


Body Literacy - One on one session, getting to know your menstrual cycle, ovulation & sexual/reproductive health. Understanding your body to gain better control of your health & wellness through lifestyle changes, tailored to fit your specific needs. How to use a menstrual cup, tracking/charting your cycle, education on how foods, products & environmental factors play into the menstrual cycle, brainstorming questions to take to your doctor, guiding your child through their first period, sexual & reproductive education beyond what you were taught in health class $30 for one hour or $50 for two hours.


One-on-One Birth Wishing Session- Personalized One on One education for your upcoming labor, birth & immediate postpartum. These sessions include a copy of your very own "Birth Wishes" handout, which we will go over in detail during your session to give out to your birth team, ensuring everyone is on the same page. You'll leave with loads of resources to feel confident, educated, ready to advocate for yourself, prepared for your birth & more! These sessions can be done in person or virtually for a fee of $250, sliding scale available.

Certified Birth Doula

Sari Fein (she/her)

Rachamah Doula Services


As a DONA-trained birth doula, I provide physical and emotional support and education to birthing people during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. It is my deeply held belief that there is no right or wrong way to bring a child into the world. My goal is to help you have a birth experience in which you feel listened to, supported, and empowered. I support all births, including births with an epidural, unmedicated births, and Caesarean births; whether in a hospital, birth center, or at home. I affirm all LGBTQIA+ families, am trauma informed, and am actively working to become anti-racist.

Why Rachamah? In Hebrew, “rachamah” (pronounced ra-ḤA-ma) is the feminine form of the word “rehem,” which means “womb.” This term is also often used as a verb meaning “to show compassion,” which is a guiding principle of my work as a doula.

I support pregnant women through pregnancy and in preparation for birth with herbs, acupuncture and gentle yoga instruction. The majority of my acupuncture practice is devoted to the lifelong postpartum period assisting women in the recovery process after birth to reestablish alignment, strength and stamina. Whether it is three days later or three decades later, it is never too late to heal the ailments that may have come up during pregnancy or birth. Whether it is building pelvic floor strength after birth or helping a woman prepare for a second birth after a challenging first birth; the integration of herbs, movement and acupuncture can be incredibly fast, productive and powerful in the prenatal and postpartum periods.
