Sharea was amazing through the whole experience of pregnancy and birth and it was certainly a whirlwind experience! I don't know how I could have done it without her - her knowledge and reassuring presence helped me get through a long labor, hospital transfer and eventual C-section. I'm so grateful for her and would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a doula!
Sharea was absolutely incredible throughout my pregnancy and labor. During my pregnancy, she checked in often to see how I was doing and always readily answered my anxious questions. She always made my husband feel comfortable during the prenatal visits and we loved all the techniques and suggestions she offered. During the labor, Sharea was incredibly supportive with encouraging me through each contraction, providing gentle massage, and suggesting various positions. After our baby arrived, she took pictures on my husband’s phone that we’ll cherish forever. Soon after the birth, Sharea had to go to support another client, which really showed me her level of dedication. Even when she had to leave, Sharea checked in on me to see how I was recovering and how the baby was doing. I also appreciated her support during the postpartum visit a few weeks later. Overall, I’d recommend Sharea because she’s dedicated to supporting mothers with whatever birth they choose, she offers excellent strategies before and during birth, and she has the type of personality and sweet spirit that makes everyone comfortable.
I HIGHLY recommend Sharea as a Doula! She was loving, kind, attentive, and just all around comforting throughout my whole labor journey. She encourages you and helps you find your inner strength. I could not of imagined my birthing process without her. Sharea was also wonderful with my whole family, my 3-years old toddler and husband. As she would help communicate my needs to them as my labor progressed or stalled. She arrived at our door right after helping another mother labor at a hospital. Therefore we know she was exhausted BUT was still dependable and quite committed to us. I have no doubt she will give the best of her ability to all the mothers she helps, as she will do it with such natural love and care.
She was a lifesaver I don’t know what I would’ve done without her. Listen if there’s any guys reading this it’s definitely worth the investment. Seriously, you’ll need the help. Especially if you’re baby’s due during the playoffs nba/nfl/nhl. And if you’re a first time dad like I am. She was great I was able to catch the game and get some sleep during early labor at our home, that was great. She was great at showing me how to position myself to soothe my wife during contractions, she’s very knowledgeable about the entire process of pregnancy. I highly recommend Sharea! She’s awesome she brings good energy! And she’s great at what she does! Thanks Sharea!
Sharea is amazing! She made my husband and I feel confident about giving birth naturally to our first child. Our prenatal visits with Sharea were great and helped us get to know each other better and prepare for labor and delivery. She is a very positive and joyful person and this helped me feel very at ease around her. During my labor she helped me breath through my contractions well and took care of calling the midwife when things were progressing. She was very willing to do whatever it took for me to be comfortable and so glad we had a doula. Whether you are a first time mother or this is your tenth rodeo, Sharea is great and we highly recommend her!
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!
