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

Ravae was wonderfully supportive throughout labor and delivery, before, and after.

In the two sessions before labor, Ravae helped us to think through our expectations and desires for labor, delivery, and postpartum such that we felt in control (as much as possible) and supported.  I felt much more calm going into labor knowing that she would be there to support us and advocate for us.

To feel comfortable at the hospital during the labor and delivery, it was important for me to understand what doctors and nurses were doing throughout. Ravae did great communicating this need to the doctors and nurses and helping me and my partner understand what the doctor/nurses were doing and why. She also provided hands-on support and massage while communicating with me to make sure I felt comfortable. She suggested different positions to try, helped with the transition to those positions and monitored if they were working. She helped to clearly communicate the details of our birth plan to the hospital staff at the right times to maintain a productive and helpful relationship with them.  Help with communication was important because when we arrived at the hospital, my contractions were so close together that I couldn't communicate much with the doctors and nurses.  She helped my partner by suggesting things that he could do to support me and to provide guidance to doctors and nurses when I wasn't able to answer questions.

Ravae was available by phone or text anytime, which was very helpful and comforting while waiting for labor to begin and after we arrived home postpartum.

Ravae's lactation support was specific without being overly prescriptive.  I found her guidance and advice empowering and flexible.
