Welcome to Open to Life
Hello and welcome!
I’m Sarah and I’m the founder of Open to Life, where I support women who are on a challenging path to parenthood through coaching, online programs, retreats and supportive community.
I was inspired to start Open to Life after my own 10-year journey to motherhood which saw me go through IVF, multiple surgeries, pregnancy loss and eventually, egg donation and surrogacy to have my two beautiful girls.
After experiencing the depths of despair, I made a decision to draw on the skills and wisdom I had gained through my own experience as well as my professional life, and package it all up to support women who found themselves on a similar path.
Whilst I don’t focus on getting women pregnant, what I teach is so nourishing to the soul, the psyche and the nervous system, it can certainly assist – but this is not the goal of my work. What I do help women with is learning how to cope with the overwhelming anxiety, grief and despair that accompanies infertility.
My work is deep! I help create a container for those darkest of places and hold the energy for women who are ready to explore what they may have previously feared to face. In a culture where self-improvement is currently king, I believe that self-acceptance and self-compassion are the real antidote to suffering.
I’m a bit different from a lot of other wonderful people that work in this space. My work is strongly influenced by eastern philosophies in combination with the best of modern psychology, I bring over 20 years of experience with teaching, guiding and supporting others, and I believe that forming an intimate relationship with grief is the only true path to healing and wholeness.
So if you’re open and ready to take a more soulful approach and go deeper, then it would be my privilege to support you on your journey and guide you on the path towards motherhood with more grace and ease.
