ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Sarah Sorvillo is a Midwife, Certified Herbalist and Childbirth Educator.
"In February 2012, Heart of Herbs Herbal School certified me as an Herbalist after two years of independent study and demonstrated skill with over 60 herbs. The main focus of my herbal studies was traditional, homemade, Western Herbalism, with a focus in women's health. Over the years my knowledge and practical use of herbs has grown substantially, including herbs from around the world.
Herbalism is very near and dear to my heart. I started studying herbal medicine over 7 years ago when my family was greatly affected by the recession and lost our health insurance. To this day herbal medicine is still the main source of health care for my family of four.
You can find herbal products that I have made, such as handcrafted herbal teas and salves, at the Well Rounded Momma store."
