Sarah Harkins

Sarah Harkins author @ BreastfeedingPlace.comHow does one wrap up their identity in a nice neat package?  Who am I? I am a wife, a mother, a certified lactation counselor and birth doula, a champion for my fellow mothers, and someone who cares about the last, the lost and the least of these. I believe in the grace and love of Jesus, and try my hardest to be ‘Jesus with skin’ on a daily basis to those around me.

I believe that God has given us, as women, the gift of producing life from our bodies, and a way to nourish those precious souls from our bodies as well.  Mothers are a captivating thing really, are we not? Helping mothers see the truth about who they are, the part they play in His plan, and the role they have in raising a family whose hearts are bent towards our God creates a sense of joy in me that cannot be contained!

There are few things in life I enjoy more than laughing, so jokes, on me please, are a must.  And for goodness’ sake, do it on demand, and don’t schedule the fun!

It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve women in the community God gives me, whether that be in person, on a phone, or on the internet.  I have felt the sting of not having enough support for pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding.  I don’t want any mother to have to struggle, not meeting the goals they have set for themselves.  If God gives me the opportunity to be the difference, then let me at it!

You can read more of my heart  in my blog, and visit my birth doula and lactation counseling business page on Facebook here at Nourish and Nurture.  At this point,  the only time I tweet is when I have had too much coffee.

Rebekah Hoffer   author @ BreastfeedingPlace.comI had a great experience breastfeeding until I realized that my frozen milk tasted awful.  After many tears, Google searches, and conversations with lactation consultants, I discovered that I had excess lipase activity in my breast milk.  Thankfully, I was able to overcome my excess lipase activity by learning to scald my breast milk and donating 575 oz. of bad tasting milk I had in the freezer.

I am passionate about breastfeeding, but I love being frugal and green just as much.  I share frugal lifestyle tips, going green baby steps, and all of life in between at  You can find me on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.
