Sarah Owens is a Certified Nurse-Midwife at Nativiti Family Birth Center and Women’s Health Associates in The Woodlands, Texas, where she provides newborn care and full-scope midwifery care for childbearing women. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2004. After the empowering birth of her first child in 2005, she began working in labor and delivery which included support of vaginal birth after cesarean. Later, her myriad of experiences as a travel nurse led her to pursue a career as a Certified Nurse-Midwife which came to fruition in 2018. Most recently, Sarah has completed a quality improvement project involving VBAC/TOLAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean/Trial of Labor After Cesarean) counseling and informed consent as she pursues her Doctorate of Nursing Practice, with an expected graduation date of Sept. 28, 2019. Sarah’s passion is to see the ACOG recommendation, that women with a history of cesarean birth be counseled about and offered a trial of labor after cesarean, become a reality for all women. Sarah, her husband, and three children recently relocated from Salem, Oregon, for her new position at Nativiti. They look forward to all the adventures Texas has to offer.
