She was amazing doula. We clicked instantly. She explained her services and how she could assist me, filled me in on the things I had yet to realize I needed to know, and offered phenomenal emotional support. Though my pregnancy didn't go as planned, she encouraged me and did her best to help me stick to my birth plan. It made the whole ordeal a bit more manageable for me.
Sam West is fantastic. She supported my husband and I at our daughter’s birth. From when I first met her, I was exceptionally impressed by how knowledgeable, professional and friendly Sam was. During the birth, Sam was highly competent, relaxed and reassuring, guiding us through possible labor positions, comforting me, helping my husband in terms of how best to support me, providing information, and ultimately, proving to be much more fully present, knowledgeable and supportive in guiding me through pushing than the labor and delivery nurse was. I ended up needing an unplanned ceserean - Sam was there throughout. In looking back at the experience my husband and I both agreed that we are not sure how we would have made through the birth without her. I cannot recommend her more highly.
Sam was extremely affective at making me feel comfortable throughout the entire process, and especially during the birth. She provided me several helpful resources both before and after the birth. Her services were a great value. The best part of having her as part of my birth experience was the confidence she gave me by equipping me with knowledge about the birth process as well as the physical comfort she was able to provide and teach my partner how to provide during my labor.
I could not have made it through my intense and rapid labor without you. Your guidance, comfort measures, and emotional support helped to calm my fears and go with the flow of labor. I’m honored to have had you cut Solaris’s cord in my natural birth and we will hold you forever in our hearts.
