Sarah was my doula for the birth of my daughter in May of 2013.  She had a beautifully quiet presence and was an excellent support to my husband and myself.  I highly recommend Sarah!

Sarah was my doula for a second time when I gave birth in December, 2013 via Birth Center VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). 

Thanks to the information and words of encouragement that Sarah gave me throughout pregnancy and birth, I never doubted my ability to give birth in my chosen setting.  She was always available via text, phone, email or messanger as I needed her throughout pregnancy. 

When I called to let her know I was in labor, she came over promptly.  My midwife believed my labor would be slow, so she sent us all home to rest... and within three hours, I called Sarah back up, and headed back to the birth center in transition.  Sarah helped keep my partner calm and informed while I finished laboring, and emotionally supported me as I gave birth. 

Sarah helped keep my birth environment peaceful so I could labor calmly, and give birth with no worry or fear. 

Thank you for being a major part of my last birth, Sarah!  Ari and I are extremely grateful for your assistance through my two VBAC births!

Sarah attended my Hospital VBAC in September, 2011.  She was an extremely valuable component of my birth!  

When things did not go as planned due to circumstances beyond our control (I had cervical scar tissue which caused slow/stalled dilation at times), she remained strong and supportive for both me and daddy.  I ended up requesting an epidural after nearly 30 hours of labor so I could get some much needed rest, and during the time I was "out of it," she was able to calm and educate daddy, which was much needed.

I am now utilizing Sarah for my planned Birth Center VBAC in December, and couldn't be more pleased.
