Having Sara as my doula was the best decision my husband and I made for the birth of or son.  I was initially impressed with Sara's credentials and long list of experience on her website. This was my first birth so I wanted someone with alot of expertise to help me feel at ease for the natural labor I desired. Sara fit the bill perdectly, I  could tell by our first visit together. She was very professional yet so personable with every meeting and answered any question I could think of about labor and pregnancy. Communication was flawless with Sara, anytime I needed to contact her she was prompted to respond. When my labor started I let her know and when we needed Sara, she was there so quickly. I remember as soon as she came into the hospital room I breathed a siegh of relief. She immediately knew how to comfort me and help me stick to my birth plan. I felt like she was there for me to take care of things so I could totally focus on laboring. My husband was  very glad to have her there too because he felt more relaxed and was able to be calm with me. The thing that I am most greatful for about having Sara there for my labor was the fact that she was able to tell that, even though  my baby's head was down, he was not facing the correct way. She was able to tell me different birthing positions to do durring contractions and he moved into the correct position! If it was not for her doing that I believe I could have run into some more serious complications.  She was also so kind to check up on me and my son after birth to see how we were doing a few days later. Having Sara as my doula was 100% worth it to me and my husband. If given another chance for future babies I will most definitely be wanting Sara to be there again.

My life would not be complete without Sara. She saw me at one of my weakest moments, and she chose to stay by my side and tell me that I could make it! Sara was my greatest resource during my pregnancy, she was the MVD (Most Valuable Doula) during labor, and delivery, and she has become my friend (she and her little boy came to visit me at my house so she could my sweet baby boy and check on me)! One of her strongest qualities is that she takes initiative to get things done the right way. Sara honestly stayed by my side the entire time I was in labor, and that means more to me than she will ever know! She wanted me to be comfy, she made sure I had warm blankets, ice, food, essential oils, and she made sure my birth plan was followed.  My baby was OP, and Sara knew exactly what we had to do to get the baby turned! Sara is truly pursuing what she has been called to do! She is a true answer to prayer. My husband said it’s the best money we have ever spent hahahah!

I can‘t put into words how thankful I am that we used Sara throughout my pregnancy and birth. She is such a great resource and allowed my husband and I to relax as much as possible. Her calm demeanor and encouraging words were so helpful during my super fast labor and delivery. She met with me several times theoughout My pregnancy and was very easy to communicate with. She was a great resource for everything from complicated labor and delivery plans to local restaurants and coffee shops. I think everyone having a baby should have a doula and I would highly recommend using Sara. It made all the difference for me.

I've gotten to witness Sara in action at several births. She is kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. She will bring a wealth of medical and midwifery knowledge to her work as a doula. She has a sweet and gentle presence and is a good listener and teacher.

 

Sara is a great person to have on your birth team! I highly recommend her.
