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

I can't recommend Sarah highly enough! I had no experience with doulas before meeting Sarah, so I wasn't sure what to expect. She was there for me in the weeks leading up to my daughter's birth, always responding to questions immediately with helpful information and even more helpful encouragement! She is so knowledgeable and was an invaluable resource for a first-time mom with a million questions about what was happening to my body and the baby. With her support, I was able to stay calm through a 24-hour labor and a difficult delivery, including a lot of time laboring at home, as I hoped. (Sarah stayed with us the entire time and, unlike a lot of other doulas in our area, didn't charge us extra for the long labor -- which made a huge difference to my stress.)

Her approach is focused on supporting the mom (and dad/others, of course!) and making pregnancy and birth less stressful and more healthy for everyone. She was totally supportive of what I wanted to do (e.g. having an epidural) and helped us think through decisions rather than pushing her own agenda. This was particularly valuable during my long labor, when she helped us understand what was happening and what it all meant, and helped me hone in on how I was feeling and articulate my questions to the doctors. Even in the weeks after we brought our daughter home, Sarah checked in on us regularly and even drove over to our house late one night in our first week home when my husband and I were exhausted and overwhelmed and needing her encouragement! (She also took a few BEAUTIFUL photos during and after our daughter's birth that I didn't think much about before but am so grateful to have now.)

I can't explain what a difference Sarah made to my and my husband's experience of our first pregnancy, birth, and early weeks home with our daughter. She is a wonderful person and friend and a gifted doula, and I would recommend her to anyone. We would never have another baby without her!
