Testimonial for Dawn Star Sarahs-Borchelt

I met Dawn when she arrived at my home as our back up doula. After already laboring for almost 19 hours and feeling like it wasn’t going anywhere, it was disappointing to learn that the doula my husband and I had been working with leading up to that day had another client in labor. However, as soon as Dawn entered our home she made my husband and myself feel at ease and worked with me to help get me as comfortable as possible. Within a few hours we made our way to the hospital. She stayed by our side throughout the night providing answers and insight to what was happening, presenting and explaining different options that would be available to us to help progress labor if we wanted, and continually offered comforting words and encouragement. Our son was born that morning and we had successfully had his labor and delivery without any medication or interventions. I give so much credit to Dawn as our doula for helping us obtain this goal!

Dawn remained with us and helped get him off to a good start with breastfeeding. Even after she left that morning, she continued to check back in over the next few days to see how we were doing and answer any questions that we had. She even sent us pictures she’d taken while I was laboring and of our family of three immediately after birth. Pictures were the last thing on my mind when our son was born and I’m so happy that she captured those special moments.

Both my husband and I agree we are happy that we hired a doula to be with us at labor and delivery, and we both appreciate Dawn showing up at the last minute to support us through such a special occasion in our life!
