A Bit About

The Owners of Phoenix Family Birth

A vibrant husband and wife team with an insatiable drive to serve growing families, Mark Sawhill and Bethany Sawhill are the owners of Phoenix Family Birth. Their enthusiasm for providing nonjudgmental support and balanced education for moms and dads sets the agency apart as Arizona’s premier providers of birth and parenting support for the family unit.


Mark and Bethany came to highly value connection as the common theme throughout their personal pregnancy and birth experiences with their own children: to their babies, to each other, to their communities, and to their individual needs and expectations as a mother and a father. They discovered that there were countless resources available for an expecting mother, but very few for a father, and even fewer still that they could participate in together. Though the value of fathers was being touted at every turn, birth was a "women only" sphere. They set out to fill that gap and be a resource for parents to work together through this momentous time in their lives, and thus established Phoenix Family Birth, the first full-service doula agency in Arizona focusing on family-centered care. 

Family First Always is a driving commitment at Phoenix Family Birth. Mark and Bethany believe wholeheartedly that taking care of a family is one the most valuable contributions that can be made in a community. In addition to take care of clients' families, Phoenix Family Birth operates under unique structures that create sustainability for the doulas and other professionals with whom they work. Alongside the opportunity to earning a living wage, they have the built-in support of a team model so that their own families can remain at the forefront of their commitments in times of need as well. 

Long before opening the agency, Mark and Bethany enjoyed a colorful history together since meeting in third grade. They are native Arizonans and thoroughly enjoy spending time nurturing their preteen sweetheart, Riley, comical toddler, Logan, and sweet new baby, Collin—their ultimate motives for dedicating themselves to careers in family development.
