Testimonial for Dawn Star Sarahs-Borchelt

I would definitely recommend Dawn Star Sarahs-Borchelt and use her if I were to give birth again! I was induced 5 weeks early due to pre-emclampsia and we missed our final pre-birth appointment, but still worth every penny to have her there with us. We talked about my concerns with ym blood preassure pre-birth and she was very comforting and informative, considering I knew in advance that I may not get the birth I wanted. She even recommended a great hypobirthing class, that was very helpful. I was very nervous about the birth and having Dawn to talk to really helped.

She was great in the delivery room helping with massage, and supporting my husband and Mom. She also walked me to the bathroom multiple times, supporting my desire NOT to have a catheter, despite beginning hooked up to an IV and comunicated my wishes to the doctors effectively when I decided that I did actually want an epidural. When they could not bring it right away, she got them to stop the pitocin, at my request, until they could give me one.

She followed up with a home visit after the birth and brought some soothing herbs and brownies! Overall, I felt very well cared for, and well supported, and even though I had to be induced, was able to give birth without a c-section, or any preassure to receive one.
