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

When I first found out I was pregnant I knew immediately that I wanted to do my best to attempt a natural epidural free birth. I was immediately terrified from personal experience with anesthesia and knew I wanted to do everything to avoid the experience if possible. I spent most of my pregnancy researching on pinterest and google and any other outlet about how to make lay my fears to rest- every single thing I found led me to having a Doula. I didn't hire Sarah in the beginning- in fact I think we met in my last trimester and while she was only with me for that short period of time the work she did was a world of comfort. I cannot begin to imagine my journey through that last trimester and through my delivery without her. The birthing experience turned out to be everything opposite of what I wanted and I was forced to face my fears but having Sarah there was amazing. She helped keep me calm and helped me talk through the tough decisions we had to make, never once passing judgement or even truly offering advice just gentle listening as I worked my way through my feelings and came to my decisions on my own. She stayed with me through both days of my induction as well as my c-section and kept me company when my husband had to leave. I had a great physician and a great team of nurses but I also wholeheartedly believe that my positive birthing experience (because even though it was the complete opposite of what I wanted it still was so positive!) was also because I had the support from her. You need a Doula, but more than anything you need Sarah. Thank you so much for everything you did for us- you were the best decision ever!
