Testimonial for Sarah Gotlund

I cannot imagine going through labor and delivery without Sarah. Hiring her as my doula was the best decision I made. Sarah was always available to text in the months leading up to my baby's birth. This was extremely helpful. She was such an informed and calming resource to have before, during, and after the birth.

In the end, my baby was born 2 weeks early. I was in the hospital for 42 hours before our baby arrived (perfect and healthy). My water broke in the middle of the night and Sarah was ready to respond to my needs. She met us at the hospital as soon as we asked her to. Sarah had me up and walking around the hospital. My labor did not start on it's own, despite our best efforts. Even after inducing, it was very slow going. Sarah spent the night at the hospital with us. She even left to pick up food for my husband. If we wanted alone time, she was happy to give it to us.

Without Sarah, we wouldn't have known what to do. Not only did she help with the pain (massaging my back and helping my husband to distract me), but Sarah also brought a wealth of knowledge on how to augment labor naturally and how to help move the baby into a better position. After about 24 hours of labor with little progress, I had to consider having a c-section. Sarah was so supportive and not judgemental at all. I was also super impressed by how well she worked with the medical team. Sarah and my nurses were dedicated to trying to move my labor along naturally. And after I had an epidural and could no longer walk around, Sarah used various sizes and shapes of exercise balls to change my position in bed.

I felt so comfortable with her. And I know for certain that she improved the outcome of my labor and delivery. Thanks in large part to Sarah's efforts and support, I was able to deliver vaginally. Despite having a long labor, it was a joyful and positive experience. I could not have done it without Sarah.
