Sarah and Matthew Bivens are the creators of Doing It At Home (DIAH), a platform for empowering home birth content and community. DIAH started in 2016 when they were pregnant with their first child and switched from a hospital birth to a home birth halfway through the pregnancy. Both balanced lifestyle coaches prior to becoming parents, Sarah and Matthew have taken their past coaching experience and married it with their passion for home birth to make DIAH the ultimate space for home birth empowerment. DIAH includes a podcast, online community and content, resources and coaching. Together since 2012, Matthew and Sarah currently live in Marietta, Georgia with their daughter Maya.
