Sara and I hit it off right away when we first met on the phone. We then met in person along with my husband, since he's also part of the whole birth experience. She is very attentive, listens, and takes the time to answer all of our questions. Sara gave us the support we needed (provided valuable resources for online sites, articles, etc.) - and she has a gentle, calming affect that put both our minds at ease. She reminded us what our rights are when dealing with medical staff/hospital. I learned that even the best prepared birth plan can change course on you midstream and Sara navigated the journey with us. My whole birth experience was positive with Sara's guidance and support - and I honestly don't know that it would have been otherwise - especially for first time parents like us!
Sara was beyond amazing before, during, and after the birth of my daughter. In our meetings before the birth she was very clear as to her role as doula and I let her know where I felt I needed extra help and support. She was very knowledgable in every area about which I had questions. She knew about different laboring positions, induction methods, and drugs that may be used during labor and delivery. Before my doctor's appointments we discussed questions I may have and what to expect at the appointments as my delivery date drew nearer. I wanted the birth of my child to be as natural and drug-free as possible and Sara was very supportive of every descision I made along the way. She also helped prepare me for the possibility of my birth plan to not go as I had hoped, which was super beneficial as nothing went as I had initially planned. Through my 31 hours of labor Sara was there every step of the way helping me to remain focussed and explaining options to me as they arose, making the descision process much easier for me. Sara came to the hospital the day after I gave birth to check on me and the baby. She even stopped by our house the week after we came home to make sure we were all adjusting well and to see if there was any way she could help us. Sara was always available to me and my husband and made sure we knew we could get ahold of her with any questions or concerns whenever we needed. She would even contact us just to let us know she was thinking of us or to see how I was feeling. Sara is genuinely caring and professional. I cannot say enough about the support she gave me through our entire birth process. I honestly am not sure I would be able to view my birth experience as a positive one without all of the help and support Sara brought to it. She made me feel more confident and sure of my decisions, making sure I had no regrets when all was said and done.
