Recording of The Shared Decision-Making (SDM) Process 

Sponsored by: 

Please join us for a timely discussion about The Shared Decision-Making (SDM) Process a live webinar with Sarah Ferguson. 

My name is Sarah Ferguson. I am a Reproductive Harm Reductionist, full spectrum doula, placenta encapsulator, and community educator, serving the Los Angeles area. My practice seeks to combat reproductive health disparities, maternal mortality and reduce trauma in the birth and postpartum periods for my clients. I have been trained in a wide variety of birth and postpartum techniques, and work with families of all sizes and backgrounds and I am committed to improving birth outcomes for my whole community. I am comfortable supporting all outcomes of pregnancy, including conventional parenthood, surrogacy, adoption, abortion, loss, and folks who are unsure about their journey. I’m also a trained facilitator; as an active member of the birth community, I place an emphasis on cultural competency and education. Curating spaces and programming dedicated to health promotion in marginalized communities is a large part of my role, and continues to be one of my favorite parts of my career!
