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

Pure magic. That is how I describe Ravae.

Ravae was recommended to us for placenta encapsulation & postpartum care by our birthing doula. We called & discussed boundaries, breastfeeding, schedules, & the steep learning curve that comes with a first child. I knew we'd need 40 hours, we had no clue what was coming. Ravae suggested 20 - she was confident we would be great parents & get the hang of it. She had the confidence in us that I couldn't find for myself. Already magic.

My son is born. We're home the 2nd night. Husband collapses & is taken to the ER. He comes home quickly but without a diagnosis. Suddenly I'm taking care of my son alone because we don't want to take the chance my husband will collapse on baby duty. We weren't expecting Ravae for another day or two but she didn't wait. After a birth, at midnight, she came to our house and took care of me and my son. How? She scooped up my son in her arms (which he loved!) & told me to go to sleep. She said she would wake me when he needed to eat. I slept for the first time in days. When I woke up my son was still asleep in her arms & she had somehow (MAGIC) cleaned the kitchen. I fed my son & went back to sleep for a few more hours. Early morning came, Ravae went home, and I was left feeling a little more human and sane.

Over the next 4-6 weeks Ravae helped with sleep (mine and the baby's), breastfeeding positions, and much more. After our visits were done, she followed up several times to ensure we were okay and to provide resources on new questions we had. She still reaches out to check on the baby.

My baby is now 8 months & there isn't a week that goes by that I don't miss Ravae. I know she's doing wonderful (magical) things for new & expecting parents but I selfishly wish she could still be a regular part of our family. If you're thinking about a postpartum doula, I highly recommend it. More over I whole-heartily recommend Ravae.
