Testimonial for Sarah Gotlund

I chose Sarah to be my doula for the birth of my 7th child. I'm not sure what took me so long to finally hire a doula but it was the best thing I've ever done (apart from making seven beautiful children). Sarah helped me immensly throughout my last trimester of pregnancy and encouraged me to seek chiropractic care. When labor began Sarah came to my house and sat with me for hours timing my contractions. She affirmed my desire to go to the hospitalwhen labor became more intense and was instrumental in communication the details of my labor with the hospital staff. Sarah was amazing during labor at the hospital. She rubbed my back, gave me water and chapstick, talked to me all night while my husband slept on the other side of the room, laughed at my jokes, was compassionate when I was scared and teary, non judgmental about my desire for epidural pain medication, helped the nurses roll my giant numb body over in the bed, and held my leg when I pushed. All while being my biggest supporter and cheerleader. She stayed around afterward while we figured out nursing and held the baby for an hour so I could get a nap. I can't even imagine what this birth would have been like without Sarah there. Sarah believed that I could do it and I did it.
