Sarah is an excellent doula! She is the most kind & professional person i have ever had the pleasure of working with & will again if/when me & husband have a second child. Sarah planned prenatal appointments at our home to go over any & all birthing anxieties, request, strengths & weaknesses. Sarah was my main support guide throughout my pregnancy. If i thought anything was concerning, she would give me logical ideas to discuss with my doctor or midwife over the phone rather than making an appointment for everything. I had a few days of prodromal labor. Sarah came to my home & labored intensely with me for hrs (7am-6pm+). We did multiple exercises to try to work my baby down & continue contractions. When we descided it was time to go to the hospital, Sarah did everything to make the room as comfortable as possible & helped the hospital staff honor my wishes that she kept in her pocket. Sarah was able to encourage me to keep my breath, utilize the labor tub & use a rebozo to pull for contractions. I was able to conquer a 100% natural vaginal birth. I firmly beleive i would have had a C-section had it not been for Sarah. She labored with me for almost 24 hrs. From 7am-11:50pm! Even after my baby was born, she helped us get food from a restaurant that would still deliver after midnight & saw us to our quarters after the delivery room. She continued to answer breastfeeding & postpartum questions i had afterwards + checked up on me daily for the 1st week postpartum. I Couldn't ask for a better doula!
