Testimonial for Sarah Newton, CD(DONA), CPD (BAI)

Sarah was a God-send! First, she is super personable and immediately makes you feel relaxed, like you’re talking with an old friend. She made my husband feel comfortable with the idea of having someone else in the delivery room. Second, she checks in constantly, which I love. She wasn’t just there for meetings and the birth. She always texted to check-in to see how I was doing, especially after delivery. It was also nice to have someone on standby if we ever had a weird question or concern. Third, she is indispensable during labor. We planned on having a low-intervention, natural birth. However, babies make their own plans. Sarah helped me try different positions to turn baby and applied counter-pressure on my back when my husband needed a break. That alone makes her an amazing asset during delivery. During some scary moments, Sarah was able to explain to my husband what was happening and give him some peace of mind despite the team of nurses and doctors surrounding my bed. After multiple interventions, a c-section was decided as the best option for us both. Obviously, this was NOT part of the plan and something that both my husband and I were scared of. Sarah was able to talk us through our fears and remain calm through the entire situation, despite it being completely opposite of what we expected. If you are wondering if a doula is worth it, Sarah is! You never know what birth has in store for you and she has the experience and knowledge to help you through whatever comes your way. She stayed with us for over 24 hours during labor (hard labor that required a lot of physical energy) and an unplanned c-section. We really couldn’t have done it without her. ~ Stephen, Amelia, and Baby Thomas
