Sierra was such a comforting, calming, and caring presence during the recent birth of our beautiful baby! She went way above any expectations to accommodate us with a last minute request to provide extra support during stressful extenuating circumstances, which was especially appreciated. We completed our childbirth education class with her too, and it was amazing to learn so much! Because of Sierra’s involvement, we felt very prepared overall and had an exceptional experience. We would recommend her reliable services!
For as long as I've known Sierra she's been passionate about birth. Over the years I've learned so much from her and when it came time to have my second child, I was so lucky to have her attend the birth as our Doula. Sierra has a comforting prescence and I would not have been able to have a natural birth without her support. She is attentive and truly cares about her clients and loves her work.
As a father going through this experience for the first time I was nervous and felt a bit out of place. Add to that my wife deciding to do a completely natural and out of hospital birth, It only heightened my angst and sense of bewilderment.
Sierra instilled and maintained a calm, encouraging, positive vibe. She did an incredible job at making both my wife and I feel at ease. She had a wonderful way of taking the wheel while still somehow allowing us to maintain control. It was an amazing experience I will never forget and Sierra was a big part of what made it so amazing.
Sierra went so far above and beyond what we could've ever asked for. She drove an entire hour at 3 in the morning to help me through my contractions and let us know when it was time to go to the birth center. My labor was about 13 hours and Sierra was so present and attentive the entire time, she didn't leave my side and helped ease my pain during the most intense times. Aside from being there during my labor she put in so much of her own time and effort to be the best possible doula I could've hoped for. She even took it upon herself to be the photographer for my very special day! I don't know how she did it all, but I feel so fortunate to have met Sierra. She played a huge roll in the birth of my little girl and I could not be more thankful to her!
