Sarah Sorvillo

Certified Professional Midwife, Licensed Midwife (WI) & Certified Herbalist

I started out as a Labor Doula after having an empowering homebirth and I was blessed to serve hundreds of families in various birth settings for over 10 years. For 4 years I worked as a Midwife at a busy maternity center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Then moved to Iowa at end of 2021 to be closer to family. 

In addition to being a Midwife, I absolutely love studying herbal medicine. It's a great addition for clients who like treating things as naturally as possible. In February 2012, Heart of Herbs Herbal School certified me as an Herbalist after two years of independent study and I demonstrated skill with over 60 herbs. Herbalism is very near and dear to my heart and I utilize those skills to help promote good health for my family and clients.

I am a traditionally trained midwife through the apprenticeship model set forth by the North American Registry of Midwives. I began apprenticing with two amazing Midwives in 2016 for 2.5 years. After practicing as a primary midwife for another two years, I sat for my midwifery exam and after passing, received the certification title of Certified Professional Midwife.

When I'm not working, you can find me at home with my two kids, researching and playing with old-fashioned remedies and recipes. My kids are the official taste tasters of all of my tea formulas!
