Marissa Walters

I don’t think I can adequately describe the impact Sarah made on my postpartum experience in 2000 characters! So I’ll keep it brief.

 

She is amazing. She served as the one person I could talk to about anything and she listened with a non-judgemental ear EVERY TIME. She is so so knowledgeable about everything prenatal, labor, delivery, the postpartum mama and newborns. To boot, I trust her to provide 100% truths and evidence based information to me which is so important during a time when a PLETHORA of information is thrown at you and you don’t know A. What/who to believe and accept as your truth and B. What is true or Just totally false. She has supported me in hard times when I had to hold back tears telling her how TIRED I was and how much we struggled with milk supply and celebrated with me during the small wins (like pumping 8 ounces during one session, who else sincerely cares about that?!). 

 

On top of being a great listener, and a great source of information, she is patient, kind, and relatebable- everything a new mama needs during this fragile yet wonderful part of life.

 

I am TELLING YOU, you need Sarah. It will be the best decision you will make.
