Testimonial for Sally Wiggins

When my husband & I found out we were expecting we had a basic idea of what we needed to get through labor. We knew we wanted as little intervention as possible, as much emotional/mental support that we could get, & were interested in natural remedies to help with labor. That's when we decided to hire a Doula. When we started the match process we knew that we wanted someone maternal, kind, positive, & that would help be an advocate for us. Sally was the perfect fit. Being a mom herself, & assisting countless other moms through labor we felt confident she was what we needed to have the successful birth we planned for. A week after our due date our doctor checked us in to be induced. What we were hoping would kickstart my body to go into labor instead took over 24 hours before we realized this isn't going to happen the way we wanted. Sally was absolutely instrumental during that entire time in making sure I didn't lose my mind, or give in prematurely before we decided to go another route. Sally massaged my back through every contraction, spoon fed me jello, held peppermint oil under my nose everytime I felt nauseous, diffused essential oils to calm me, put me in the shower when I couldn't stand laying in bed any longer, advocated for me to my nurses to make sure my needs/wants were met, & then finally helped us make the decision 30 hours later to have a c-section. I was terrified, but felt so much better knowing she was by our side & that we had done everything we could do up until that point. She was with us before & after surgery & made sure we were successful with breastfeeding. Sally spent an entire day on her feet, working hard for us, even reminding my husband to eat & sleep or catch his breath every so often. She checked on us afterwards & followed up a few weeks later. I can not have imagined going through labor without her, & I would recommend her to anyone-no matter what type of birth you envision.
