My husband and I have told everyone who will listen that hiring Sarah Cole was the best money we've ever spent. I can honestly say that my birth story feels victorious and meaningful in no small part due to Sarah's faithful support at every step. Sarah approaches her work with a beautiful blend of compassion/empathy married with complete competence and level headedness. We trusted her advice and also felt fully seen and understood by her. She took time to listen to our questions and concerns, she asked brilliant questions and gave expert advice to help us prepare for birth, and she made us feel very comfortable immediately as she took on the gritty work of labor assistance. She is good at getting to know a couple and offering tailored support based on their desires and philosophies. Because of her help, my husband was able to be an active part of my labor and delivery, something he had great fears about throughout my pregnancy; I was able to push myself and to be proud of the level at which I labored; I was able to try different positions and strategies to drive forward my labor; and I felt cared for and advocated for as I journeyed through this otherwise very scary new process as a first-time mom. She helped educate us about every step of the birth process in a way that empowered us. She helped me push as hard and as long as I had hoped to and helped me feel still successful when it was time to make new decisions. We love Sarah dearly and celebrate her important role in our story.
