Our experience with Sarah was phenomenal! From the initial prenatal meeting to our postpartum visit, we felt supported every step of the way. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable on prenatal nutrition, labor and delivery, and postpartum. Whenever we had questions about anything, we could reach Sarah quickly and she always gave us a helpful answer. During our birth, Sarah offered different labor strategies, breathing techniques and encouragement the whole way. We could not have imagined the birth of our first child without Sarah.  We are so thankful!

Sarah was amazing. She provided the perfect balance of knowledge and physical/emotional support, while also allowing for space for medical care, partner support, and mother's intuition. Having an RD as a doula was fantastic. She provided so much nutrition support! Sarah's demeanor was very calming in the whole process. During hospital triage, it was obvious that I was frustrated with the nurse's tone/language. Sarah was able to keep me calm and encouraged me to get back into the zone. She offered different comfort measures through labor such as position change suggestions and counterpressure. Having the reminders to eat and drink my adrenal cocktails definitley made a difference! I didn't have a doula for my first, and while I still love that birth story, I do feel that Sarah made a big difference in my second birth.



Sarah is absolutely amazing! I am not sure there are sufficient words to describe how wonderful she is. We learned so much from her during our prenatal visits and during the birth she somehow knew what we needed and supported us in every way possible. After baby was born she continued to support us by answering all of my breastfeeding questions and checking in to see how we were doing. I would recommend Sarah to anyone and everyone. Even the midwife attending our birth commented on what a wonderful, and supportive doula she is! Thanks largely to Sarah we got the calm, peaceful birth experience we'd dreamed of and we are so grateful for her.




Sarah was absolutely amazing before, during, and after our birth. As a first time mom she walked me through the entire process and what to expect each step of the way. I felt so empowered and in control going into birth. We were admitted two weeks early because of high blood pressure and Sarah showed up at the hospital for us quickly even though it was 11:00pm. She was there to offer advice and help us through the process of induction. She supported us, labored with us, and helped us through birth for over 30 hours. She was beyond amazing and helped me to feel in control and confident the entire time! I'm so thankful for her calm spirit and the way that she walked us through each step.

I cannot adequately express how valuable Sarah was throughout my pregnancy and labor! She was always available when I or my husband had questions or needed support! One of her added services was a one on one yoga sessions and it is what kept me in shape and active during the later stages of pregnancy, it also helped us build a more personal relationship so I felt extra comfortable with her being in my birth space. Her prenatal meetings really helped my husband and I have an idea of different ways to cope during labor. During labor she was completely attentive to me (over 24 hours),providing me with suggestions for positions or ways to relax, making sure I stayed hydrated and ate something if it sounded good. She encouraged me to make sure that my voice was heard by the medical staff and she helped keep me calm when things deviated from the vision I had for my daughters birth. She was all in all amazing and highly knowledgeable, we will definitely be using her again!

I hired a doula to be with me during birth because I found at 14 weeks my pregnancy was high risk and would require me to deliver in a hospital setting. I was hoping that a doula would be able to help me make it a more positive and holistic experience, and help me to avoid use of pain mediactions. Sarah went above and beyond what my expectations were, empowering and coaching my husband and I as we became first time parents. She helped us to navigate through our pregnancy by spending time getting to know us and understanding what our wishes were. She brought us knowledge, trust, positivity, and compassion each session and prepared and equipped us with both the tools and literature we needed to go into the delivery room with confidence. I truly believe that God and the universe paired her with our family to bring our son into the world. I can't imagine going through another birth without her. After we brought our baby earth side, Sarah stayed with us at the hospital, and helped ensure he developed a good latch, and continued to check in with our family in the days following out return home. From start to finish, Sarah was pivotal in creating a comfortable and empowering birth experience for my husband and I. She is the absolute best!
