I'm a first time mom. The whole idea of motherhood made me anxious, so I consulted Sabrina and ultimately hired her to be my doula. Through my whole pregnancy she answered all my questions, even the ones I was scared to ask. She never made me feel bad, I always felt educated and empowered. She gave me book lists and supply lists. She was always there for me to vent to and lean on for support. Our plan from the beginning was to do a natural hospital birth. In my final days of pregnancy, I felt prepared and educated, and Sabrina made sure I didn't lose focus while I was in pain laboring at home. When I arrived at the hospital I had made it to 7cm dilation on my own at home. I asked for no interventions at the beginning and, thanks to reminders from Sabrina, I was hydrated enough that I didn't even need an IV put in. I feel like because I was so mentally prepared for this that I didn't ask for an epidural and that I knew I could do this. It was the hardest thing I'll probably ever do in this life, but I was ready. I knew how to breathe through the pain in ways that wouldn't let me clamp up, which was very impressive to my nurse. In fact, the entire night staff was thrilled to do a natural birth and they were all very impressed- especially for a first timer. I told them "well my doula deserves a lot of the credit", because I knew nothing about having babies before this. My baby came out just fine with no issues at all, very healthy and alert and very hungry. And thanks to Sabrina I knew how to give her a good nipple latch and she fed almost immediately after she was born. Hiring a doula is something I'll never regret. If i had let every person who told me horror stories about birth and pain get to me without talking to Sabrina about it, i dont think i would have done a natural birth like i had wanted to. But i wasn't scared, I was ready. My boyfriend was amazed by my powerful birth and he is also very thankful for Sabrina.
Wow, I don't even know where to begin. My first birth experience was not one I look back on and have good memories to say the least. This time I wanted to have a doula in my corner. Speaking with Sabrina through iG I loved her attitude right away and then when she came to my house we clicked right away. She was supportive throughout every step. She recommended good books, articles and answered many questions. Her open lines of communication always made me feel great knowing I had someone besides my husband to support me. Now let's get to the birth itself, there are not words to describe how empowered i felt. Sabrina helped me through it all! It was everything I didn't know it could be. Thank you so much for everything!
Wow! meeting Sabrina was a blessing, I meet her at last minute but was worth it!!! She was a guidance, friend and Supporter! During and before labor, her advices and constant communication made everything easy going! Let me tell you, I don’t have words to describe how AMAZING SHE IS! Thanks Sabrina for everything! Always thankful you were with me in such special moment! ???
What is a doula? How it was explained to me by my wife initially sounded so simplistic, "A doula provides support during your pregnancy and the birth of your baby". However, what I found to be true during my wife's 41 weeks and 4 days of pregnancy was that Sabrina is SO MUCH more than that. Sabrina is a down to earth, soft spoken, powerhouse of knowledge. From the moment we interviewed her to potentially become our doula WE knew she was the one for US. At first I didn't know how or where I fit in this new equation of Wife, Doula, Baby-on-the-way and Me. I thought she was my wife's doula and I just had to call her when my wife went into labor or something. Little did I know that Sabrina would be my doula as well, coaching me on the journey leading up to and even after the birth of my baby girl. She provided me with ways to engage the doctors during what can be an extremely tense high pressure environment. She taught me technical terms to listen out for with doctors that went against mine and my wife's wishes and birth plan. She showed me methods to help ease my wife anxiety and pain. She taught me how to keep my wife focused through what would prove to be the most intense yet beautiful process she would ever experience. She helped me move with more confidence knowing I had an advocate with a wealth of knowledge on my team. During my wife's first pregnancy I was naive. I thought I would be telling her to "PUSH!!!" like I had seen on TV so many times. I ended up arguing with doctors and being extremely frustrated because I did not have the knowledge to combat their unnecessary "suggestions". I was ill-equip to deal with the scare tactics they would use to try to convince my wife to commit to a c-section that she did not need. Luckily this time around I had a secret weapon. Sabrina is more than just a doula. She was present through the entire pregnancy calling and visiting. She was present for all 17.5 hours of my wife's labor. She is a super hero. She is family.
The memories I have from my first labor and delivery in 2011 are not ones that I look back on fondly. After a series of typical hospital interventons, I had my son via emergency cesarean after 23 hours of labor. I was coerced using scare tactics, and the doctors even lied on my final hospital report to justify a very uneccesary surgery. When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I vowed to try for a VBAC, and knew that having a drug free, natural delivery was going to be my best bet. I decided to seek out a doula at the advice of a friend who had a natural birth experience. I decided to hire Sabrina. Not because of her fancy resume, or # of births under her belt, but mostly because I clicked with her the moment I saw her at my door the day of my consultation. I felt like we were old friends, and for some reason, I trusted her. Trust was everything to me. I didn't trust the doctors or midwives at my practice, so I needed someone in my corner who I knew was going to have my best interest at heart, with the knowledge she needed to help me make informed decisions and take back ownership of my birth. After 41 weeks and 4 days of pregnancy, I am so proud to say I delivered my daughter naturally after 17.5 hours of labor. There is NO doubt in my mind that I would have been able to accomplish that without Sabrina's support. She was a HUGE support not only in labor, but throughout my pregnancy. Which I really needed those last few weeks being so overdue. For the labor, she thought of everything, from bringing small LED candles to the hospital for ambiance, to scented oils. She even made me a banner with visual affirmations to help me through contractions. I wanted to give up throughout most of the labor, but she kept me and my husband supported and focused. I can't rave enough about her. She genuinely LOVES what she does and truly is passionate about supporting women during this time. She is amazing and I will forever be grateful to her.
I Highly Recommend Sabrina Kline!! She is a responsible, hardworking, kind and nonjudgmental person. Sabrina's personal experience with both the military and working in reproductive medicine means that she is a wealth of knowledge and a sure bet for any new parent. Having Sabrina around during the early weeks of motherhood was an amazing asset. I was able to concentrate on bonding with my newborn and not worry so much about all the little things. Recovery from a csection takes months and you really need all the help you can get. We can Doula is an excellent Doula service and Sabrina Kline is a a very kind hearted good person. Don't hesitate she can be your Doula too!
Sabrina has been wonderful with answering any and all questions i've had even if i felt they were silly. She allowed me to feel very comfortable in knowing that there are no silly questions. And gave me tasks to focus on to be able to start mentally and physically preparing for labbor and post labor. She is completely dedicated to my birthing vision and made helpful suggestions that I didnt even think about! that I absolutely love and included in our birthing vision. If I had questions after doctor's appointments she was able to help me understand or answer any questions that had developed afterwards. I am sooooo excited to be in connection with Sabrina, and for the continuation of this pregnancy!
