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

We found Sarah through word-of-mouth, from a former client of hers. I will forever be grateful that the mere mention of being pregnant inspired this former client to share with me how useful a doula was to her, and how wonderful it was to work with Sarah.

We hired Sarah for birthing support as well as post-partum night shifts (and some day shifts). Even though I knew I wanted an epidural, I felt it was valuable to have a seasoned, calm advocate in the room. Sarah is highly personable, so the pre-birth consultations helped to get us well acquainted prior to the due date.

During the birth, I especially appreciated how she kept a timeline of the birthing process and emailed it to us. She also took some wonderful photos of our daughter's first moments. And she stayed until the birthing process was complete.

We also had her do a naturalistic (non-prop) photo shoot with the baby in our home a few weeks after the birth. The photos are so wonderful and sweet!

Sarah's help with overnight shifts twice a week for the baby's first 3 1/2 months was truly invaluable. She places an emphasis on the wellbeing of every member of the household by, for example, offering accupressure sessions for us new parents, both dad and mom (our backs and shoulders were in rough shape trying to adjust to holding, carrying, and picking up the baby!)

Given our lack of family in the area, the absence of which was especially painful given the stage in the pandemic during which the birth happened (late Jan 2021, when vaccines were not yet widely available), it meant the world to us to have Sarah as a supportive addition to the family. She is like a family member who listens unfailingly with empathy, wisdom, humility, and good humor.

Our daughter is almost one years old now, and we regularly keep in touch with Sarah, because she has been such an invaluable support during this momentous time. We cannot recommend her services more highly.
