Andrea Sheeran

Sarah was my back-up doula for the birth of my son becaue my doula had her wedding scheduled for within a week of my due date!  My doula ended up being available for the birth of my son, but Sarah and I had become good friends and made a connection, so she also was there for me for what turned out to be a pretty protracted labor and an eventual cesarean birth.  Sarah's a very gentle soul and a knowledgeable doula.  She always made me feel that she truly cared about what I was going through and put me at ease when I had anxieties about being a new mom.  Any woman who is fortunate enough to work with Sarah is lucky enough to work with someone who has not only a gentle spirit, but the strength of real dedication to seeing that the wishes of the mother are respected and the well-being of the mother/child unit is maintained.  I would recommend Sarah to another pregnant woman, or to a postpardum mom, without hesitation.  She was wonderful with my son.
