Sabrina was wonderful! I am in the military and my family and friends do not live nearby so Sabrina became my closest contact and friend for any birth questions. I had wanted to have a natural birth, but my husband was not comfortable with that, so we agreed to have doula support at the hospital. We met Sabrina and decided it would be a good fit. My husband felt comfortable asking questions (this was our first birth) and he learned a lot from her (he wasn't reading as much pregnancy literature as I was), and I felt like I would have the support I needed for a hospital birth done as naturally as I could. She was very thorough and had birth plans and all the key questions answered. Prior to the birth, the doctors started worrying that the baby was too small, perhaps growth restricted, the baby was footling breech. The doctors required me to go to the hospital almost everyday for stress tests and Sabrina would meet us there and keep us company while we did the test and the subsequent ultrasounds. The day I was 39 weeks the doctor attempted a version to turn the baby. We had to be at the hospital at 5 am and Sabrina was right there with us. During the version, the baby's heartrate just about stopped and the doctors took me to do an emergency c-section. The doctors left my husband in the room and Sabrina was right there with him. He was a nervous wreck and having Sabrina's calming, reassuring presence there was a lifesafer. When I came back to the room, I was uncertain how to breastfeed, but with her coaching, we were able to get the baby latched. She capsulated my placenta and was a constant help through the post-partum time. I loved how she was available to text, she came and visited (we are at least an hour drive away), and she always had an encouraging word. We have stayed in touch and she has been one of the driving forces to the success of exclusively breastfeeding for 6 months+ (goal is at least a year). She definitely comes with my recommendation!
Sabrina is a wonderful human being. I moved to Oklahoma in my 27th week and discovered that no one in my area was willing to do a VBAC. I reached out to Sabrina for support, information, and to see if she would be my doula. Not only did she drive an hour each way to come visit me, but she also became a good friend when I was in much need of one. She is a wealth of knowledge, supported me 100% in my desire to have a natural birth, and brought me Cinnabon when my cravings hit :)! On delivery day, she was with me through the night, staying in constant communication with my midwife, instructing my partner on how to help and support me, and also encouraging me the entire way through my labor. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She was amazing and I am so thankful for her. Sabrina made me feel comfortable, confident, and brought a sense of peace and humor through the whole process. I can’t recommend her enough! Thank you Sabrina!
Sabrina is amazing! She has such a bubbly personality and is very easy to talk to. My husband was hesitant at first to get a doula but after having a doula sit-down, he was sold. Sabrina made us feel comfortable and gave many pointers about preparation for our birth. She helped to boost our confidence and even came over to help us create birth affirmations, which we hung all over our walls to help us maintain a good attitude about our birth. We delivered our first daughter, Abigail at home in the tub. We had no idea I was in labor at the time Abigail was born. My husband called her to see if she could check on me until our midwife arrived a few hours later. Sabrina came over quickly and explained my status to the midwife. Sabrina helped to keep us calm and gave suggestions about how to ease my pressure waves. During our birthing process, Sabrina showed my husband how to be supportive and how to help me to feel as comfortable as possible. Sabrina encapsulated my placenta and I cannot begin to tell you how helpful this was postpartum. Sabrina was a great fit for us and was always available. I would recommend her to all mothers and fathers who would like an extra hand and someone to go to for advice during pregnancy and delivery.
As new would-be parents my wife and I had no idea about kids or birth. I was very nervous because she wanted a very free and natural birth, something that seemed to go against what most people do and what (it seems like) hospitals want. I wasnt sure I would feel confident in helping my wife through pregnancy and birth on my own so we looked into a doula.
We met Sabrina and loved her instantly. She is very genuine, open and easy-going. We asked her if we could discuss it overnight and she said of course, but as soon as she left we thought we should have just locked her in.
Once a month she would come visit and discuss certain things about the birth and pregnancy. My wife had many question about things that will happen at the hospital that Sabrina could answer with confidence. She showed us techniques we could do together to help relieve pain, made sure we felt confident and, to me, the most important thing, was driving home that this was our birth and she would help us have it as we wanted.
During the labor Sabrina was awesome. Before it got real, we played games and talked about Harry Potter and helped us fight the pain and get the baby going. One thing I will always remember about Sabrina is after the baby came, and my wife was pretty out of it, the nurses asked me if we wanted some shot for the baby. I knew there were several different things my wife was particular on and I didn't know which was which. I looked at Sabrina and she was able to tell me.
I would recommend Sabrina to anyone, not only for the mom but especially for the dad. She gave me confidence that we could have the birth we wanted. I felt like we should have paid her double for all the work she did for us.
Sabrina was absolutely wonderful before, during and after my labor and delivery. I had a risk of developing preeclampsia and she helped ease all my fears even though I had to be induced early because of it. Because of her, my husband was able to tend to our 3 year old until other family could arrive and I felt completely at ease with her while I was laboring. She was attentive and never left my side. Her main goal was to help me achieve the natural labor and delivery that I had chosen to have. My husband and I are greatly appreciative of her and are so thankful she was there to help welcome our little boy into the world. Highly recommend using her for your doula needs.
Sabrina helped me after I lost my daughter and through my pregnancy with my rainbow baby. She was always there when I just needed to talk. I was terrified my entire second pregnancy about loosing my son. She was always available to talk and let me know if things were normal. She was an ear to freak out on. Which I really needed. Our relationship was slightly different in the fact that she is in Oklahoma and I am in Ohio. Therefore, she was unable to attend my sons birth in person, but during labor she made herself available over the phone. She also was there to help me work through my feelings of having another csection. If she could offer that much support over the phone and states away I can only imagine how it would be if it was in person.
Sabrina is absolutely amazing! We hired her because we wanted support during birth and for my husband to be involved but we didn't know how or what he could do. I was a little hesitant about hiring a doula at first because I wasn't sure if I would feel comfortable having another person in the room besides my husband. Once I met Sabrina though I knew that she was a perfect fit for us! She is so kind, encouraging and knowledgeable and, as a first time mom, she made me feel really prepared for the birthing process. I wanted an all natural hospital birth, and though everything didn't go exactly according to plan, I achieved my goal of a pain-med free birth with thanks to Sabrina. She educated me on the different choices I had when it came to different procedures that could happen and provided unbiased research to help me make an informed decision. During labor she suggested different positions for me to try, helped my husband massage and support me, and spoke invaluable words of encouragement. It was an amazing experience and I would hire Sabrina again in an instant!
