Client Testimonials for Sarah Wort

Carole Ward

Sarah was an exceptional sources of knowledge and calm during my pregnancy and labor.

Before delivery, she spent hours with us discussing our needs, desires, and how she could help us when the time came. She was very respectful of our wishes, and helped make both my husband and I feel comfortable.

During delivery she came right away when we asked, and prepared things that we needed. She was hands on when we needed, and hands off when we asked. Her demeanor is very calm and she is right there when you need her. At the height of my labor I remember her peeking her head in very softly and offering some much needed advice. She followed all our wishes and really advocated for us.

I feel very privileged to have had Sarah at my birth and if I decide to have another, she will be my only choice.

Sarah Wort was our doula for the birth of my son Charlie in October, 2015. From our  first contact, I knew Sarah was the perfect match for us. She is kind, soft-spoken and immediately put me at ease.

In the months leading up to my labor, Sarah was consistently helpful, checking in and easing my fears. She met with my husband and me several times to help us practice labor techniques and to build our relationship with her. At first, we were nervous about sharing such a personal and intimate experience with someone, but she proved her worth over and over again.

When I went in to labor, she coached me on the phone and then met me at my house so we could come up with a game plan. It was so nice knowing she was there to support both me and my husband. When my labor became more intense, Sarah was right there, holding my hand, massaging my back, and doing everything in her power to help me stay calm and focused. My husband loved being able to follow her lead as well. I don't know how I would have done it without the two of them there. 

Nurses came and went and the doctor was busy, but Sarah was totally focused on me and my needs. She was able to say things in a way that I could understand and she helped me focus when I needed to the most. My sweet baby was born happy and healthy on October 25th after just 5 hours in the hospital. She took pictures for us that I will treasure forever and witnessed us becoming a family of three. 

I will never be able to thank Sarah enough for all of the love and support she continues to show me. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for a doula. Sarah is simply amazing and I hope to have her help for any future babies down the road.

I chose to use a doula for my second birth after having having to be induced and having complications from the epidural during my first delivery. Having had the experience of delivering a child previously, I knew that I wanted additional expertise and support in order to have an unmedicated delivery with my second child. Even thought I had to be induced again with my second child (contractions with inductions are much, much, much different and more difficult than when the body induces labor on it's own) I was successful in maintaining an unmedication delivery. Sarah was the critical link to reaching this goal. She provided meaningful information in the weeks leading up to my due date on the birth process which, even though I'd had a baby before, neither my husband or I were aware of. She maintained daily contact and support during my due date week and the 10 following days as I went overdue. During the induction she was masterful at providing gentle yet firm support, encouragement and energy during the whole proces. I had a great deal of fear being induced again and knowing that I had her expertise and support eased some of the anxiety I experienced. During the process I know that my husband was also grateful for her presence and work. Having her there allowed him to be supportive to me without having the extra burden of trying to understand what was happening or trying to fiture out how to help me. Sarah was able to offer him tips and ideas so that he could support me in a meaningful way. I cannot recommend having a doula at your birth; more importantly I cannot recommend Sarah enough!!!
