At Michigan Midwifery Co
SARAH LYONS, LM CPM
With roots in the Fowlerville area it was with great joy that Sarah, was able to move home while taking her boards to create roots and build community around her midwifery practice. Moved by a desire to create access to autonomous, comprehensive care for every season of life Sarah brings a background in anthropology, social work, and trauma informed care to midwifery.
Sarah began supporting birthing families as a doula in 2013 and followed with studying midwifery in 2016. Following the apprenticeship model Sarah trained in six midwifery practices, affording her the opportunity to be launched into the non profit world working with pregnancy and parenting teens, serve the Amish community, train in breech and twins and work closely with a variety of providers. Sarah’s midwifery training had a concentration on; handling emergent situations in rural areas without access to hospital transfer, trauma informed care, and herbalism. In 2021, she completed the NARM exam and became a CPM. She believes that health and reproductive care should be empowering, individualized, and family/community centered as it truly takes a village.
