Custom WordPress Website Design
If you have an established & growing practice, or you are ready to invest in your dream website to launch your new business, then custom website design is for you. My custom website packages allow us to work together to envision and craft a beautiful new website that works just the way you need it to to support your business growth. No template - just wide open creativity and possibility as I build your website from scratch. You will enjoy a highly collaborative design approach, allowing ample opportunities to offer feedback and make design tweaks to ensure that your website is the best possible online presence for your business. Do the math, and you'll you see that even just a few extra clients over the next few months will more than cover your investment.
My unique perspective as a web designer, business coach, and seasoned birth professional means I nurture both you and your website every step of the way.
You want to be able to maintain your own website, right? I want that for you too!
Whether you want to change text, photos, add new events or create a new service page, your new WordPress website will be FAR easier to manage than you might imagine, without any of the design limitations you'll encounter with more basic builders such as Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace.
You get a 100% mobile responsive site that can adapt as your business needs grow and change! Yes, that means that 5 years from now when you're ready for a fresh look, you don't have to start from scratch. My goal is to build you a website that will grow with your practice for years to come.
YOUR NEW WEBSITE IN JUST 2 WEEKS (OR LESS!) HERE'S HOW:
We prepare for your website build.
Your first steps will be to write your website content, choose images, and explore your design preferences. My Website Birth Plan questionnaire will help you consider your website vision & needs, and your free copy of my Website Birth Plan ebook will help you write content. With two one hour coaching calls before the build, we have plenty of time to get clear on the design vision. To ensure you're on the right track, I will offer feedback on your content and design elements to help you engage and inspire potential clients. You will also enjoy free access to my SEO Birth Plan eCourse on search engine optimization (value $99).
I build your website.
Once your content and our design vision are ready to go, your website will go live within 2-3 weeks. Our design time together includes ample opportunities for feedback to refine site design features and formatting with up to three one hour design input calls.
I teach you how to care for your website.
I want to be sure you have 100% confidence in using & updating your website. You will receive a custom training video tutorial specific to your website, and access to my private client tutorials page. We’ll share a final training phone call after launch to answer all your questions. One month after we launch, we will share a final coaching call, offering the opportunity to make final design tweaks, and discuss your online strategy.

“Sarah is creative genius in motion. She teased out truths about business – things I hadn’t previously crystallized – and now I feel even more clear my business direction. She listens deeply, speaks from knowledge and experience, and is willing to try new things! It was a pure joy for me to see and sense how much FUN she was having as she created my site. I also appreciated knowing that she focused primarily on the building of my site during the time frame we agreed upon, and has plenty of resources and tutorials available to help guide the way. It felt good knowing we were both rowing the boat together, at the same time.”
“When I started looking a designer for an overhaul of my very basic website I knew I had found the right person in Sarah. She is so clear and concise; it was obvious that her custom website design was meant for someone like me. We designed a new site from the ground up – content, design, branding and SEO. I really appreciated how she made sure I understood what was needed every step of the way, and helped me flesh out my ideas. I am so happy with the site; it’s exactly what I envisioned: Fresh, fun, clean and professional. The inquiries are already rolling in, so it’s also pleased my ideal client, which is exactly what it should be doing!”
“Sarah is passionate about helping women succeed with their birth business! Her vision has inspired many doulas and other holistic professionals to take their businesses seriously. Working with Sarah on our online branding has helped us to create a website that genuinely reflects our personalities, our brand and our hope for our clients – that they be drawn into a warm, supportive community through their contact with us. If you’re looking for someone to help you focus and refine your vision with a beautiful aesthetic design that will communicate those ideals on your website, you can’t go wrong with The Website Doula.”
