Sarah was my doula for my first child. Sarah did a couple of prenatal appts with us and got informed about everything to date about the pregnancy. She helped us create an affirmation banner as well. She also had me tell her about all my prenatal appts after that with my midwife. Before I went into labor, she stayed in touch with me asking how I was feeling and gave advice on what to do to help start labor, etc. Sarah met my husband and I at the birth center when my husband called her telling her I was in labor. Sarah was amazing! She helped me try different position to help cope with labor, which was really helpful. Swaying was what she found helped me most and she swayed with me until she had my husband take over so she could do other super helpful things. I was really hot during labor and she made sure to keep a cool hand towel behind my neck, which was a godsend. She made sure I had water and stayed hydrated. She knew my birth affirmations and recited them to me. I had a fast labor (only about an hour and a half) and Sarah stayed on top of everything! After our sweet baby girl arrived, she helped me get in bed and offered to get my husband and I food. She also held our baby girl for a while so we could take a nap! Sarah also helped to get baby to latch for breastfeeding. Sarah stayed with me while I got my sutures from my second degree tear as well. She stayed with us until about 4pm which was 2 hrs before we went home (arrived at the birth center at 9am, baby was born around 10am.) Sarah also came to our house for a couple post partum visits to ensure mom and baby were doing well. Sarah makes sure there are no signs of PP depression too. I could not have asked for a better doula and highly recommend you to consider her as your doula!
