I was waiting to write a review for Sara until after the birth of our daughter, but I realized that things might get hectic then, so I want to just praise Sara for all that she has already done for me even before the baby comes, as well as what I'm sure she will due during the delivery. Not only is she very organized and on top of things with information and best practice, she patiently listens to all of my questions throughout this whole experience. I am currently at my due date with little signs of birth any time soon, and she has been helping me with different positioning, natural methods of stimulation, and exercises to help get things going. We have also dealt with failing the 1 hour blood glucose test, having to get an NST due to slowed fetal movement, and the baby not being quite head-down when she was supposed to be. I couldn't have asked for a better support system throughout this journey. Thank you so much for being a part of this!

Sara's calming and knowledgeable presence was invaluable to me. Mid pregnancy I was experiencing a lot of anxiety surrounding inductions. After bringing Sara on we found a new doctor who was more supportive of the birth plan I wanted. When my waters broke and we went to the hopsital I began to feel a little bit like a cog in a machine, then Sara arrived and the whole experienced softened. Sara made gentle suggestions that helped the baby along. I felt supported and encouraged all along the way. Aside from a prostoglandin tablet to help along contractions I was able to birth with out any medication or interventions. In the weeks after birth Sara checked in and answered questions about post partum healing and mental health. I  would recommend Sara to anyone who has the opportunity to hire a doula.

Sara is a great friend and caregiver. She supports my special needs son with overnight care since he has frequent wake ups. She is great about brainstorming things to try with his care plan.
