Testimonial for Dawn Star Sarahs-Borchelt

As a first time mom, I was sure that I wanted the support of a doula during delivery. We talked to a few doulas and felt the best connection with Dawn Star. She tailored her approach to us after asking a lot of questions about us and the experience we hoped to have. During pregnancy, she shared useful resources and personal stories that helped build our relationship.

My birth fantasy had me laboring at home for a long time before heading to the hospital for a quick, unmedicated birth. That didn't materialize, and instead I had an induction a week past my due date. Over a very long induction/labor, Dawn Star kept me motivated and encouraged. She helped me to keep moving while connected to a myriad of cords and monitors. When the lower intervention tools weren't working and I was afraid of choosing more interventions she gave me a really gentle reality check and helped me get over that fear.

Dawn Star was so encouraging during the long pushing stage when I felt like giving up. When my son was born he needed to be checked by the pediatricians and she leaned in to let me know that he wasn't alone, she had sent my husband to the baby and she stayed with me. That really helped me to feel comforted and I didn't have to wonder what was going on during the flurry of activity in the room.

Lastly, at our post partum visit she brought me presents including a great herbal soak that enhanced my sitz baths. Overall, I really enjoyed working with Dawn Star and would highly recommend her.
