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

My husband and I had a great experience working with Ravae. To start things off, Ravae came to our house for an initial meeting to discuss our birth goals, fears, and options available to us, and helped us craft a birth plan based on that information. It was really helpful to have her help us think through different options for how labor might go, especially since things I did need some interventions in labor so I didn't have to consider my options for the first time in the midst of labor.

When I did check-in to the hospital, Ravae met us there once we had checked in and helped us get settled. I had to be on continuous monitoring since our baby wasn't tolerating labor well, but she helped us get into different positions while remaining in bed and on the monitor. Once we got to transition, she was invaluable in helping me to manage the pressure, which was still really intense even with an epidural. As I started to push, she held one of my legs and helped me count and breathe and really empowered me to take charge of the experience. After birth, she made sure my husband got skin to skin time with our son and took some of the only pictures we have from birth the first hour of our son's life.

Ravae was super responsive over text before and after birth, and was always sending us resources to help prepare for labor and to help us with nursing and postpartum recovery. She came and visited us at our apartment a few days after birth and helped me troubleshoot breastfeeding and provided recommendations for local pediatric ENTs/oral surgeons who could help correct our son's tongue tie. She also sent us a sweet care package of lactation cookies and the paper from the day our son was born, which was incredibly thoughtful and unexpected. You will be in great hands with Ravae as your doula!
