Sarah Bregel is a mother, a writer, a feminist, and a deep-breather based in Baltimore, Maryland. She has contributed to publications like Slate, Glamour, The Washington Post, Longreads, Refinery 29, New York Magazine-The Cut, Good Housekeeping, Vice, Vox, The Huffington Post, Today, The Daily Dot, The Establishment, Parents (both online and in print), Fit Pregnancy, The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore’s Child, and more. She writes news and essays for Babble.com and was interviewed live on MSNBC last year, in response to a piece there.
She writes open and honestly about motherhood and marriage, working to breakdown stereotypes about what happens to us when we become wives and mothers. Her Longreads essay, “How to say maybe you don’t want to be married anymore” was one of the top 25 most viewed essays on the site in 2017.
Sarah is an advocate for safe and informed birth and has written widely on the topic for various publications. She strongly feels that maternal safety and well-being are undeniably linked to how women are treated during childbirth. Through her work she has been part of the growing conversation about body autonomy in birth.
She lives with her 8-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son.
