Wow! What can I say other than great support, care and service from Sharea of Supporting Hands Doula Care. I honestly was doing just fine getting through my second pregnancy despite it being a high risk pregnany with lots of discomfort I had not experienced with my first child. Nevertheless, a family member gave me a gift certificate for Doula services as a birthday present. It was in hope of getting a little more support as I finished out the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. Needless to say, my husband and I found more than that. Sharea made sure to check on me every step of the way as a listening ear, a sounding board, as well as a resource for any questions or concerns I had nearing the end of the pregnancy. In addition, she provided a pregnancy back massage that alleviated the lower back pressure and made sure to show my husband what to do so he can give me. She also helped me stay on task in preparation for my C-section...thinking it through from pre-registration, packing my bag, etc. And, after the baby arrived she visited at the hospital, provided breastfeeding support at the hospital, in the home and also continued to check on me via phone/text as she did through out the pregnancy. Overall, Sharea was an amazing support even for someone that already had support from family and friends. She provided a level of expertise that made the latter part of my pregnancy, delivery and bringing baby home a smooth transition. Sharea's support filled the gaps I didn't know existed in my planning and preparation for my 2nd child. She even helped what seemed impossible and discouraging in breastfeeding a wonderful addition to my success story; she was the extra push that got me over the hump. My husband, son, and newbon are extemely thankful for her sincere care and concern and would recommend her services to anyone seeking that type of support.
I cannot recommend Sharea highly enough. She was actually the back-up for the doula I hired, as I knew ahead of time my doula would be gone a week at the end of my pregnancy. When I went into labor that week, I felt perfectly comfortable knowing she would be the one to support me, even though we had met just once. What I felt immediately—and what helped me throughout my labor—was her ultra calm demeanor. She continually helped me relax and breathe through my contractions. Without her, I would have given up on a drug-free labor/delivery immediately. As important, she helped my husband to feel confident and engaged throughout the process. As hard as it was, I’m so happy with my labor & delivery experience, and I couldn’t have done it without her. I would recommend Sharea to anyone.
Sharea was so loving and attentive during the lengthy 72 hour labor/delivery of my precious baby girl. Sharea stayed by my husband and I’s side from home to hospital while keeping a smile on her face and positive spirit throughout. We truly felt that we had a strong advocate who made sure our wishes were met throughout the many challenges birthing brought. We adore Sharea and will definitely work with her again for future pregnancies.
Words can not begin to describe how grateful I am to have had Sharea as my doula. I was very nervous& anxious due to the fact of having a stillbirth last year. I knew going into this pregnancy I was going to have a doula. Meeting Sharea at the Community Baby Shower was a blessing. From the first conversation we had she made me feel very comfortable with her. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns that I had. When I realized I was going to go in labor earlier than my due date she was there. I delivered almost exactly a month earlier. I knew I wanted to have a natural birth and she made sure that happened. I was able to deliver my baby 100% natural, no medicine used at all for pain. I recommend to any mother that having a doula is one of the best helps during labor. Even though many of my family and friends either didn’t know or didn’t know why I would hire a doula, they completely understand now after my labor.
Thank you so much Sharea for being there for me and my little prince. Again words can not describe how grateful I am to have you apart of my labor
I had a wonderful experience with Sharea during labor and delivery. She helped me cope through a rough transition and was attentive to my 3-year-old daughter the whole time without taking her attention away from me. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a very hands-on physical and emotional support person during labor.
Sharea was such a blessing for me! Her availability was so convenient and she was willing to meet with us at short notice, only a week and a half before I delivered. I had a failed induction and cesarean after 14 hours of labor, but having Sharea with me was so comforting and helpful. She has a magical touch and I can honestly say she decreased the pain of contractions at least by half with her massage. She was with me and my husband every step of the way and provided so much positivity, and physical and emotional comfort. I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering a doula!
Sharea is an excellent doula! Actually, she was more like family during my pregnancy! She was there for us during and after the pregnancy! She taught us several ways to cope with the labor from her advice to different massage techniques! We were very thankful to have her by our side. She was there for the entire labor process (32 hours) and afterwards. Whenever we needed her, she was always just a phone call away! One of the best to have on our team!
