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

We were matched with Ravae about a week before I went into labor. We had been going back and forth on whether to hire someone and we are SO glad we did. From our initial interview, we could tell Ravae was extremely knowledgeable and confident in her skills as a doula. Even though we were connected late in my pregnancy, Ravae went above and beyond during the time she was our doula. She sent us tons of materials to help prepare for the birth and was immeaditely accessible at all hours. I was in the hospital for roughly 48 hours before giving birth- Ravae was there the entire time providing support to my husband and me. She was super helpful in explaining everything that happened to me especially when the nurses would disappear for hours at a time. She did everything we needed and even things we didn't know we needed! (she also is an expert massage therapist and did some magical move on my back that seemed to make the contradictions ease immeaditely). At one point, my doctor had basically given up on pushing and left just one nurse, Ravae, and my husband to help me push for FOUR hours. After 48 hours and a lot of drugs/emotion/fatigue, my doctor recommended a C-section. Ravae provided my husband and I with lots of emotional support because we were disappointed and unprepapred for this outcome.  Ravae stayed through post-op, helping our little family adjust and helping me breastfeed for the first time. She even came back a few days later to visit me in the hospital and at home to make sure we were doing okay with breastfeeding (she is a certified lactation consultant which is hugely helpful). Ravae went above and beyond throughout our time with her- I can't imagine we would have made it through without her help.  We can't recommend her enough.
