Sarah was a wonderful doula and my husband and I are so happy she was with us during the birth of our son. Sarah took time to get to know me and learn my birth preferences so she could know how to best support me. Since this was my third baby, I was already knowledgeable about a lot of the prenatal education topics she normally teaches, but we discussed everything and she really took the time to tailor our prenatal sessions to meet my individual needs. I really liked the web-based platform that she used to share materials, articles, and resources with me. During my labor, she was calm, nurturing, and supportive. She helped support both my husband and me. She helped guide him in different ways to comfort and support me. She repeated my birth affirmations to me, rubbed my back when I wanted, encouraged me, and helped me with positioning myself for comfort. She reminded me to relax my body and release the tension when she saw it and helped me stay calm and focused. After delivery, she helped us get comfortable in the bed and made sure we were settled before she left. She came for 2 visits post-partum and brought us a meal which was very helpful and delicous! SHe is such a kind, warm, loving and caring person and was wonderful to have as our birth doula. I would recommend her to any mom looking for doula support.
