Testimonial for Ravae Sinclair, JD, CLC, PBD(NBPP), CD(DONA), PCD(DONA)

Ravae did a WONDERFUL job and I would recommend her! Prior to having my daughter, I was on the fence about whether I should hire a doula. But, with a husband who works crazy hours and a mother who lives 2+ hrs away, I didn’t want to take a chance of being alone on d-day. So, I hired Ravae and, from our very first meeting, I knew that I made the right choice! Ravae was extremely knowledgeable about the birthing process and gave me some invaluable tips to prep for the big event. And, she made sure to check on my progress after every doctor appointment. As a first-time mommy, I found that to be very comforting. When d-day finally came, I called Ravae in the middle of the night to let her know that I thought I was in labor. She promptly answered and began to give me some tips on how to breathe and stay calm. When it was time to go to the hospital, she quickly met me there and over the following 16hours was a voice of calm, support and encouragement through some pretty tough contractions. Ravae was able to anticipate what I needed (e.g. ice chips, a fan, etc.) before I could even vocalize it and she bonded wonderfully with the hospital staff as well as my husband and mother who were thankfully able to be a part of the process. She was even able to take some priceless photos of me, my family and the baby without being intrusive. After the baby was home, she continued to provide amazing lactation support-like when I went from having no milk to being engorged in a matter of hours. I hadn’t even taken my pump out of the box yet. Needless to say, I was in a state of panic! But, again, she was able to calm me down and came over to my house to help me with my pump, hand-expression and other cool techniques. I haven’t had any problems since then. In short, Ravae truly has a God-given gift for providing the services that expectant mothers need and I would love to work with her again when it’s time for baby #2!
