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

What can I say about Ravae that hasn't already been said? Hiring her was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They say that you should expect the unexpected in birth and try not to get hung up on a "birth plan". I truly believe that Ravae is the reason my birth went as planned as possible- and the reason I had a wonderful experience.

At 36 weeks pregnant, I panicked. I was planning on having a unmedicated birth- my husband and I took Bradley Method classes for 12 weeks and I thought we were totally prepared. We had gone back and forth about hiring a doula, and as the reality of actually giving birth hit me, I decided I needed one.

After phone conversation with Ravae, she let me know that even though she had other moms to be nar my due date, she would be willing to take me on as a client. We had a wonderful prenatal visit with her, my mother and mother in law were also planning to be in the room when I delivered, and Ravae really understood and was supportive of my plan to give everyone a role in the birth- leaving no one out.

I ended up going two weeks over my due date and needed to be induced. This really upset me and Ravae was there for emotional support in the days leading up to my induction. Ravae was there for 8 hours of labor with us, really jumping in to help where I needed it. She let my husband be my main support system, but was an invaluable source of information and helped me emotionally, mentally and physically. She was right there with us in the thick of it, and when things got a little dicey at the end- she was the push I needed to get my baby out healthy and happy! I ended up with a 14 hour labor and I pushed about four times, it could not have gone any better and I really thank Ravae for that. She gave me the confidence to have the birth experience I wanted- I can't imagine my experience without her!
