Sarah Hamilton

Education & Communications Director

Sarah was born and raised in the Bay Area amongst a band of working-class artist-rabble rousers types who instilled in her the primacy of the creative imagination and the importance of living a heart-centered life.  Those commandments well-seeded, she’s lived a pretty unconventional life so far--longtime wilderness/river guide, MFA in Creative Writing, nonprofit consultant, love-filled mother of two daughters, and longtime birth and postpartum doula.


Though many hundreds of births in, Sarah feels the same passion, commitment, and joy in supporting women/birthing people and their loved ones as she did with the first. Sarah deeply believes in the rights of all families to safe, respectful, unbiased, and equitable perinatal care.


Sarah, Ellie, and Gwen teamed up on their first births together many years ago, and she's  been an avid fan and supporter of Golden Oak ever since. Sarah oversees the Education Program  and all things Communications and Mareketing. 

When not supporting families or helping out at GO, Sarah's likely either in some wild place by foot, bike or kayak or growing food or playing with her (adult) girls.
