Samantha was beyond great. She was there for us from the day we decided to go with her. She provided great reference materials and always kept in touch with us. I had a long and eventful labor. Samantha stayed by my side the whole time. Her calm demeanor and caring personality really helped me when I was at my lowest points in labor. There was many things on my birth plan I was unable to do but she was so good about making me feel like it was ok. She is one of the most caring people I have met and is amazing at what she does! In addition my husband also would like to add that Samantha was extremely professional and was really helpful in providing that additional support.Where do I start?! Samantha was beyond great.

As a new father, I have to admit that I had absolutely no clue about everything involved and what I needed to know leading up to and during our delivery. My wife and I took a 16 hour labor class to familiarize ourselves with everything from relaxation techniques to our options should complications arise. While it was great to go over everything under the sun relating to pregnancy, labor and delivery, it still left us alone to fend for ourselves when the big day finally came. We wanted someone that had our best interests and wishes at heart, and could be an advocate for us when important decisions needed to be made. Sam is the person that filled that void for us, and she far exceeded any expectations we had about the role of a doula. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough leading up to labor, answering any and all questions that we had. We could tell from our very first conversation with her how passionate she is about families, and helping them welcome their new additions into the world. After working with her to finalize our delivery plan, the day finally came for us. Unfortunately, we had a few complications that forced us to alter our labor plan. Sam calmed our anxiety and went through our options that we had talked about ahead of time. She didn't try and force us one way or the other, she just gave the pros and cons of each decision and let us make the call on what we felt was right. After that, she had the strong voice in relaying the message to the doctors and nurses so that we didn't have to keep repeating ourselves and could focus on being in the moment. My wife had a 27-hour labor, and Sam was our source of energy and strength when we were weary from our effort. Words can't really justify the recommendation that Sam deserves; all I can say is that she is someone you want to have in your corner when you're having one of the most important days of your lives.

After our prenatal appointment with Samantha, we felt so confident and empowered about our upcoming labor and birth process! We voiced our feelings and wishes, and she responded with really insightful and helpful advice to meet our wants and needs. She offers the perfect blend of knowledge and sensitivity, and we knew she was going to be an amazing support person for us at our labor and delivery. At the time of my labor, we faced a number of issues not in our birth plan. Samantha was what we needed her to be in each of those moments, whether cheerful and lighthearted, keen and collected or an understanding listener. I had a very long labor and she didn't make me feel rushed or like I was inconveniencing her. She just seemed happy and honored to be there supporting us. Because of the long labor, too, it was awesome having her there to occasionally relieve my husband so he could eat and rest (by the time our daughter arrived, it had been almost 72 hours since we last slept!). Samantha worked fluidly as part of our team with my husband, doctor and nurses. She was excellent at anticipating needs and also stepping back when necessary. She radiates love and support, and it's clear she has found her calling in life. She will enrich the labor and delivery process of every client who chooses her to be part of their support, and I recommend looking no further for your doula; she's the one! :)
