Testimonial for Sarah Gotlund

When my husband and I found out we were expecting baby #2 we knew immediately we would love to have a doula as part of this journey. Our first child was born breech and had to be delivered via C-section. It was our goal to have a healthy, happy pregnancy with a v-bac after cesearean. We met with Sarah early on and immediately I knew it was going to be a great match. Sarah is friendly, down to earth and really cares about the individual needs of each of her clients. She doesn't have an agenda to push down your throat of having a baby "the natural" way but insteads helps you to achieve the delivery you want. Unfortunately due to a health condition my second child was breech as well and then an anterior placenta our OB was not able to successfully flip the baby and we ended up with another c-section. However, Sarah was still there the whole time. With the health condition I had she was able to get us more information that helped us better understand what our options were and if we wanted to try for a breech v-bac at home. We ultimately decided to go with a c-section but that didnt stop Sarah from being amazing and just what we needed! The morning of the c-section Sarah met us at the hospital and provided us with the support we needed. She was not able to be in the delivery room with us but my husband and new baby went back to the room before I returned from recovery. She took pictures of the special moments happening between father and baby for me to have once I was back. Once I returned to our room she helped with breast  feeding which was one of the biggest helps we could have as 26 babies were born that weekend at the hospital and only 2 lactation consultants were available to help moms with nursing. I would highly recommend Sarah's Doula services no matter the delivery route your family intends to take. The information and support she provides through out the entire pregnancy is something every expecting mother and even father should have!
