About Sarah McMoyler

A labor and delivery nurse for over 20 years, Sarah has helped prepare over 10,000 couples to deliver and care for their babies. A mother herself, Sarah understands the physical, social, and emotional transitions associated with new parenthood.

Her mission is to provide this in every course offered at McMoyler Method. Convenient class formats, an attractive setting, and exclusive course books are designed to maximize your comfort and learning.

McMoyler Method is growing strong, in large part due to word-of-mouth recommendations. Graduates provide rave reviews; OB's and midwives throughout the Bay Area refer their patients for pre-natal education taught by healthcare professionals.
