Testimonial for Dawn Star Sarahs-Borchelt

As a first-time mom in my late 30s, I certainly had a few anxieties about giving birth. My expectation of having a doula was to have someone who has an extensive knowledge about the process of birth, who would be an advocate for me at the hospital so that I could adhere to my birth plan as much as possible, someone who is cool, calm, and collected, and someone that would be able to provide me with emotional support when I am vulberable, nervous, and in pain. I realize  it was a lot to ask and my hope was that I would find someone who would be as close of a match as possible.

Dawn not only exceeded all of my expectations but she offered so much more. Her calm disposition and extensive knowledge and experience not only as a doula but also as a mom made me feel confident, calmed my anxieties and got me excited about all the expected and the unexpected that comes with giving birth. As it came closer to my due date, Dawn was extremely quick to respond to my texts and emails and she always answered all of my questions in great detail. She was an excellent source of reading resources on any given topic and she always offered her honest, unbiased opinions.

Dawn checked on me several times a day once my due date came and always had a backup for when she was with another client just in case I went into labor. She just has a way of making you feel like she is always there and she really is, even though she may physically be on her way to another mom who is in labor.
