At Michigan Midwifery Co
SARAH LYONS, LM CPM
Sarah Lyons is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and founder of Michigan Midwifery Co. With roots in the Fowlerville area it was with great joy that Sarah, along with her husband and two children, moved back to Livingston county to start a little farm in 2020. 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, 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. Sarah looks forward to offering a variety of services beginning in 2022, encompassing everything from home birth and well person care, to support with self insemination or self IUD removal. She believes that health and reproductive care should be empowering, individualized, and trauma-informed.
