Fee Details: Though my fees are commensurate with others in the area, you will find that my packages include quite a bit more than the standard. I believe the extra appointments are essential for me to build relationships with my clients and to provide the highest level of care throughout their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum transition. I also don't believe any family should be unable to receive support solely based on financial hardship. Extenuating circumstances may be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

It's world doulas week! Gotta give a shout out and thank God yet again for my doula, Sarah Bomberger! She and Kevin made the birthing dream team. Her availability and willingness to meet my questions about all things baby before and after Adalynn's arrival coupled with her calm demeanor, sense of humor, words of encouragement, and genuine interest in my wellbeing as a new mama were all huge blessings to our family. Let's not forget the counter pressure that was glorious during labor! ??Thanks for what you do, Sarah! If you live in Franklin County check her out at Little Bear Doula Support! ...and thanks again mom for capturing all those moments on such a special day!

Sarah has been a lifesaver for our family! We first met during my last trimester, and she has remained a good friend and sounding board. Sarah’s superpower is how incredibly calming she is! As a new mom, I worry about almost everything. Sarah shares her experiences and expert advice, and she never judges my choices. From BFing to formula to green bean farts (from the baby!), Sarah is always compassionate and offers a kind word and sound recommendations. She was also very helpful around the house in my first couple of weeks post-partum. I don’t know how I would have maintained my sanity without all of Sarah’s help! Call Sarah, you will be so grateful that you did!

I met Sarah after running into a friend who told me about her wonderful experience using a doula (Sarah) for the birth of her second child. I knew very little about doula services, but the more I read about it, the more I knew this is what I wanted for my son’s birth. Sarah guided me through the second half of my pregnancy and helped to support my husband and me through an interesting, and unexpected, complication at the end of pregnancy. While Arlo’s actual birth into the world was quick (emergency cesarean section), as a doula, Sarah helped prepare me – emotionally and intellectually – for all the various possibilities I might encounter during delivery. She helped me see beyond the “ideal” narrative that we want to believe in and prepare for the unexpected situations that might arise. She also introduced me to new concepts of relaxation, which absolutely assisted me in the natural anxiety that arose in the midst of unanticipated complications. After delivery, Sarah came to my side for simple things, like empathetic conversation in the early weeks to assisting me in a super involved “freezer meal assembling extravaganza” that provided our family with easy healthy meals for months. Having a doula by our side during my pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum weeks was absolutely necessary for our family. I recommend Sarah because of hear sweet, compassionate nature, but also for her high level of knowledge in this field.

I can't recommend Sarah enough. She was my doula for the birth of my second child, which was a homebirth. I was unsure if I really "needed" a doula, since I would be attended by a midwife, but I was so glad I made the decision to have Sarah with me as well. Sarah provided me support throughout pregnancy, during delivery, and for a couple weeks post partum. Surprisingly, I found her support AFTER delivery to be most helpful! She helped with light housework, gave my other child some much-needed attention,  and was able to help me recount my birth story and talk through it all, which was really important to me. She always did her best to make herself available, walked me through helpful information, worked with me on my birth plan and provided emotional support when I needed it. We were new in town and did not have family close by so it was such a blessing to have Sarah's support and presence.

Before working with Sarah I didn't think I'd get the birth experience I hoped for but she helped make it so! Having her there throughout my pregnancy helped ease my anxiety and gave me the confidence I really needed. I am so thankful for the way she was there for us during and after delivery. I always looked forward to our next visit.

Sarah was just a joy to work with!!!! I loved all of our pre birth meetings and felt like I learned sooooo much! She was always extremely supportive and sent plenty of information my way so that I could make the best informed decision around the birth that I could. I also was very appreciative of the gentle way that she helped during labor...... she was thoughtful and was always aware of how she could best help out!
