Sara and Karen at Birth Your Way were nothing short of AMAZING! My husband and I absolutely LOVED hiring them as our doulas, and it was the best birth investment we made. period. We really wanted a natural birth, and this was our first birth, so we were nervous! The meetings before-hand has lots of great information for us, and tools to prepare for the birth. But, what really was amazing, was the support during and after the birth. I really think I wouldn't have been able to make it without the unbelievable support of my husband and Sara (she was the doula available - it's really cool that Sara and Karen work together so whomever is available on the day of, will be your doula - ensuring that you will know your doula, and don't have to worry about your doula being sick, or having another birth etc.). Sara was so knowledgeable and was able to guide us the whole time. She blew me away with how hard she worked the entire time to make sure I was comfortable. Every contraction, she was right there, by my side doing all these wonderful techniques to help relieve the pain! And, we were able to have our natural child birth! It was truly a dream come true. I will never be able to thank Karen and Sara enough for helping my husband and I bring out little cutie into the world! We had a hospital birth this first time, but now I am very excited to have either a birth center, or a home birth with their help the next time! No matter how many children you've had, where you are having your birth, or your birth plan - Sara and Karen will be there to support you the whole time! Give them a call to meet with them today! It'll be the best investment into your baby's birth.
Sara was our doula for the birth of my third daughter in October of 2016.
From the moment we had our first meeting, I instantly liked her. She was incredibly sweet, calm, and was able to answer every question I had for her. My family felt the same way about her and she was so patient and playful with my toddler.
The birth took place in a birthing center with a midwife. Sara was an amazing support to me, my husband, and my family during labor and my recovery. She provided comfort measures throughout and made sure my husband and I had everything we needed. After delivery, Sara made sure my husband and I were fed and able to relax with our new addition.
One thing I found really special was presented to me during our postpartum visit. Sara took the time to write my birth story from her eyes. I will treasure it always!
I would most definitely recommend Sara to anyone. If I ever have another baby, I would certainly want her there as my doula.
My husband and I had our first child late November of 2016. When we first met Sara we were struck immediately not only by how personable she was, but also how knowledgeable.
In the months before my delivery Sara was an invaluable source of comfort. She was always available to text with information if I had any questions and she regularly would check-in to see how I was doing.
During my son's birth Sara's constant support had a calming effect not only on myself but on my husband as well. Her experience and her preparation helped make this intense and life-changing moment as vibrant and beautiful as possible.
My husband and I highly recommend her, and we plan to seek her out when we have a second child.
Sara and Karen were very helpful at the birth of our third child. A homebirth with midwife attending.
The older children were waking up when we called in the doula. We wanted another adult here in case the children needed breakfast or attention while I needed comforting. This was not a problem for them (even at 8am on a Saturday morning).
In addition to helping with our older children...
They provided physical support: counterpressure for back labor and even helped hold me up during the final stretch. (No pun intended. :))
They provided emotional support: encouraging words.
They provided practical advice: suggestions for speeding things up, positions to labor in.
I would recommend them.
