Sannaz helped me have an AMAZING birth experience when I delivered my daughter Luna! Thanks to Sannaz's help, I ws able to have the natural birth that I desired at Alta Bates Hospital. Sannaz came to my house and worked with me throughout my active labor: giving me massage and breathing with me throughout contractions as they became more and more intense. She talked to my midwife on the phone several times, and the three of us figured out when we should go to the hospital. Sannaz then rode with me in the backseat of the car and rubbed my back while I was having intense contractions, and helped me into the hospital and the birthing room. She stayed with me through the entire 4.5 hours of pushing, helping me into different positions, getting me water, and basically reassuring me when I would get exhausted or frustrated by the loooong process. I don't know if I could have kept going without her! After the baby was finally born, she stayed with me and my family and we had such a good time: we laughed and cried, drank champagne in the recovery room and recounted the entire amazing experience. Sannaz had my back the entire time from prenatal visit through postnatal followup visit! Her background in healthcare makes her super knowledgeable about everything hospital-related so you can ask her questions about protocol and procedure. This amazing woman is a gift! Feel free to contact me if you want to chat more. Sincerely, Rachel Rajput and Luna
