Safara is so amazing. This was my second natural (unmedicated) birth, but my first time with a doula present. My husband and I didn’t know what to expect, but she exceeded all of our expectations. Her calming demeanor helped me through a challengeibg labor. I can hear her say “let’s just get through this one”, when I would lose my composure. Safara was so supportive of my birth plan and wishes that she was able to help me advocate those desires to the hospital staff. Through it all I felt supported, understood, empowered, and strong. My husband and I were blessed to have Safara be apart of our daughter’s birth.

I can't stress enough how invaluable Safara's help and support was for me during my labor.
I was going to labor alone because my husband was staying at home with our older daughter and we don't have any relatives here. I knew I needed support and have been considering finding a doula, and I am so glad I found a wonderful one!
Without Safara I would have given up on my birth plan. Everything from words of encouragement to setting up a nice and relaxing atmosphere with dimmed lights and music to massage and comforting techniques and pressure points was great and just what I needed.
I will recommend Safara to all my mommy friends looking for a doula!

My experience with Safara Cooper was really good even tho I didn't really know her but I grew fond of her and really enjoyed how she helped when I was giving birth. My baby's dad didn't know what to do but she was there to help us and she helped me try to control my contractions by giving me massages on my hands and teaching me breathing methods. She's been very helpful with the after visits helping me take care of my baby and letting me take a shower and a nap. She really was a huge help because I didn't really have help from my family or my baby's father I'd rate my experience a 10/10 (: I wouldn't have asked for anything better!

My experience with my doula Safara was a great experience because she was very attentive and had me well-informed on different birthing options and postpartum recovery. I was able to have a natural water birth with no tearing or stiches she used oils to relax, music and a calming voice to assist me in birthing my baby. Safara was very hands on and included my partner and mother to the same as well assisting me in different labor positions. I also had her encapsulate my placenta and she gave me a keepsake cord and print of my placenta. I will definitely use her services again and refer her to many of my friends and family who would like to have an experience with a doula as well.
