May Aung

Hiring Sage as my doula has been one of the best decisions I have EVER made. Because of her, I was able to have a completely natural hospital birth. Thanks to her advocacy, I was able to resist having an IV (and therefore had actual meals while at the hospital) as well as an induction. Had it not been for her, I would not have been strong enough to ask the doctor to give me and my baby more time. During my labor, Sage showed me various ways to naturally speed up my labor and because of her, I was able to go into active labor in just a few hours and deliver my son without any pain killers. Her presence was such a relief to my husband as well. She was also extremely respectful to the hospital staff. Sage is so knowledgeable and helped me feel at ease during my pregnancy, during birth, and after by providing resources all rooted in science. I would absolutely seek her out again should I have another baby and have been recommending her personally to every pregnant person I meet. Sage, you are an angel! Thank you from our little family!

Sumin was my amazing doula. She came early in my labor to check up on me. She came before my midwife came and left a few hours after the midwife left. She gave me helpful information during pregnancy, and answered all my questions. I could call her anytime.
