SARAH KAMRATH

Sarah Kamrath
After receiving her Bachelor of Science in business, Sarah worked as a senior research analyst for a multi-billion dollar investment fund for six years. She then moved to Singapore and stepped away from the business world while pregnant with her first child; that is when she shifted her focus from researching securities to researching natural pregnancy and childbirth. After having a powerful and empowering experience giving birth to her son, Sarah’s desire to help other women achieve their ideal births blossomed. She became certified as a prenatal yoga teacher while pregnant with her second child and currently teaches prenatal workshops and assists world renowned yoga guru, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa with annual prenatal teacher trainings in New York City, Santa Monica, and around the world.

Her passion for helping women tap into their inner wisdom and truth and gracefully and joyfully embrace this profoundly transformative time of their lives is what inspired her to produce the Happy Healthy Child video series. Sarah is also a doula and a freelance writer and was recently published in Mothering Magazine (www.mothering.com), Natural Life Magazine (www.naturallifemagazine.com), and Pathways Magazine (www.pathwaystofamilywellness.org). She lives in Rowayton, Connecticut with her husband, Ray, and two children, Lukas and Nadia.
