Testimonial for Sarah Hendricks

We heard about Sarah through rave word of mouth reviews from trusted friends who had hired her, which is the first testament to her wonderful doula abilities. My husband and I had an amazing experience with Sarah before, during, and after the birth of our son. She was a calm and steady presence through our whole experience, providing invaluable knowledge and encouragement. We have said from the moment our son was born that we could not have had the birth experience we desired without the help of Sarah. She met with us beforehand and provided helpful and thorough information. When the time came for my 36 hour labor, we would have been completely lost without Sarah's continued guidance. She stayed in touch with me the 24 hours between my water breaking and going to the hospital, and gave me tips and ideas throughout the day to help labor speed up. She even stopped by my house for a few hours to guide me through some exercises and positions to keep things going. Sarah then joined us again right as we entered the hospital, and was with us every step of the way afterwards. For 12+ hours she continued to empower my husband and I to work through contractions together, suggesting positions and exercises, reminding me of my birth affirmations, and physically supporting me through contractions. When complications came up, she was the calming, steady force we turned to - otherwise we may have given up or just come to a point where we didn't know what else to try. She even made a suggestion at the end of my labor that successfully moved me from being stalled to transitioning (and having my baby less than 30 minutes later!) without needing the assistance of medication. She confidently led us through the process, which was exactly what we didn't even know we needed! We recommend Sarah to anyone, regardless of what you want your labor to look like, if you'd like extra support, information, and encouragement throughout your pregnancy, labor, and postpartum experience!
