Sam is an AMAZING doula! During my pregnancy I was living in NY and Sam was in NC. Even though we were a thousand miles apart it felt like she was next to me the entire time. If I needed her at 2am then she would be there via phone, online chat or email. She is extremely knowledgable, has an entire library of resources, and always has a back up plan (aka Back up doula to be with me in case she could not be there in person!) so you can never feel worried or anxious. Birth ball does travel! She was headed up to see me during the week of my due date but unfortunately Hurricane Sandy delayed her. As I was in labor I had Sam on the phone the entire time talking me through it. My son turned out to be in the breech position and I struggled with my c-section afterwards. Without Sam's love and support to help me heal both physically and mentally I'm not sure I would be where I am today. Without a doubt I will be iniviting her again when we go for baby #2, and anyone would be stupid not to have her!
My son's birth was perfect thanks to Samantha. I wanted to have a natural birth but wasn't sure if I would be able to do it. Sam helped me through every contraction. I am happy to say I was able to meet all of my birth goals, and I could not have done it without Samantha. My husband and I agree that it was the best money we could have spent on our son and on ourselves.
My husband said it best..."Having Samatha be our doula was the best decision we made besides getting married." She was fantastic! I would not want to deliver again without having Samantha support us. She was extremely knowledgable, supportive, caring, and really made my delivery enjoyable! We loved her!!!
