Rie

Thank you for helping us for the whole process including the baby sitting as a postpartum care.
Sarah's help was substantial! The best part of her support was in labor and delivery. No doubt. I do not know how it progresses with pain medication but we did that without any pain medication. To accomplish that, the doula's support is essential. Yes, the partner can help mama but most of the time, he is not be able to see the situation objectively and tends to keep providing one pain relief method for several hours which makes him tired and usually the relief effect wears off. By having her with us, my husband could take the situation without getting too tense.

Doula Sarah Doyle was a wonderful person to have when my wife and I had our first born.  Because she was there with us before, during, and after the birth and coaching us every step of the way, we were able to relax and focus in on each other which made the experience even more meaningful and mindful than imagined.  I also felt as a husband that a lot of the pressure was off of me to make decisions, and therefore I could pay more attention to my wife and then my daughter once she was born.   Our daughter's birth was such a  scared experience, and thus our marriage became stronger.  We had Sarah for 2 weeks postpartum at nights from 9pm to 6am which was great because I was able to get adequate rest so I could be full of energy the next day to help with my daughter while my wife caught up on sleep.  We look forward to having Sarah be a part of our next birth!  Dads-to-be, having Sarah is the best gift you can give your wife,  baby, and self.  Trust me!

Doula Sarah Doyle is wonderful.   I had my first baby in fall 2018 and had her pre, during, and after the birth for 2 weeks for postpartum care at night.  I had a C section which was not planned and having her at home to help me transition made it all the more easier.   I do not even want to know what having a baby without her is like.  She is highly professional, grounded, knowledgeable,  a very good listener and teacher, and has a wonderful disposition.   Her passion for her work and her love for babies is so apparent as she truly cares about the entire family!  Sarah is a treasure and for my next baby, she will be the first person I call.
