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

Ravae was the doula for the birth of my twin sons in February 2016, and I would definitely recommend her. Even though I take yoga and like that scene a lot, my husband is decidedly not into sacrums and third eyes.  So I was searching for a doula whose style would be versatile enough to help me with breathing and stretching while also being able to trade sarcastic jokes with my husband. Ravae was a great fit for both of us.  Ravae is knowledgeable, responsive, dependable, and a joy to be around. She tailors her approach to the specific family's needs and interests.  She came to our house several times before the birth to discuss our birth plan.  As a first time mom, I had no idea what a birth plan was. So she walked us through that process and the types of choices we would need to make at the hospital.  She was not judgmental about the choices we made as part of the birth plan.  For example, she was supportive regardless of whether we decided to try a completely natural birth or use medication for pain management. She walked us through breathing techniques, birthing positions, and breastfeeding tips.  She helped me labor at home, stayed with us at the hospital, and came to our home after the birth to help with breastfeeding.  The postpartum visits were especially helpful to me because Ravae was able to get one of the twins to latch who had not latched yet. That was a big relief. She has a kind, easy demeanor with parents and with babies.  Our sons loved her.  What I appreciated about Ravae the most was that she was always calm, self-assured, and reassuring to me.  When she was around, I felt like everything would be okay.  I ended up being able to carry the twins to 38 weeks, deliver them without a c-section, and take them home without a stay in the NICU.  Ravae was a key member of the support team that made that possible.  She is a great option for you if you are looking for a doula.
