Sarah came highly recommended by our adored postpartum doula Amanda Hemm. We needed overnight relief to help us recharge after months of night time colicky behavior from our baby, who had food intolerances. It was a first for me, and I was nervous about leaving my baby with another caregiver at night. Sarah was an incredibly calm, absolutely lovely presence and immediately put my mind at ease. She showed up for the overnights looking energized and professional. On top of that she did an amazing job with my baby. I got solid chuncks of sleep and never heard a peep from the baby, even though she was in the room next door. Sarah put up with our pesky cat as well. I even got six hours of sleep in a row on a night when the baby struggled with bad gas. On the morning after this difficult night I saw Sarah gently working the gas out, keeping my calm baby company- my baby clearly was in great hands. She is a mother of three herself and has been through it all firsthand.
Sarah helped us understand details about the baby's sleep that totally reframed her issues for me. She observed the difference between baby's very active light sleep and her bad gassy moments, helping me realize gas wasn't always the problem- and validating for me that it was indeed a bad problem sometimes. When you are in the thick of things, as we were, insights like this are so valuable. I think those overnights were the beginning of things looking up for our family, actually. I highly recommend the lovely and experienced Sarah Douglas!
