Testimonial for Sally Wiggins

Sally was everything and more. Our first baby came early by two weeks and my husband was across the country when my water broke. Sally coached me over the phone on next steps, and then came over and helped me get my hospital bag ready, and get to the hospital. She was a guiding light and voice for me when my husband was flying home via red-eye to attend the birth. She calmed and coached me through the hospital protocals (as I was a newbie), used massage, stretches and essential oils to keep me relaxed until my husband arrived.

After my husband arrived, they worked as a team to execute my birth plan - proceed without medical intervention for as long as possible. She helped me make decisions at every step and was extremely supportive and informative. After laboring and trying to increase contractions naturally for many hours, I was exhausted and wanted labor to progress faster. I did ultimately elect to receive pitocin, and Sally coached me through the more intense contractions for 3 hours, before I decided to receive an epidural at around 7cms. My anxiety and fears (needles) were all extremely elevated, but Sally encouraged, relaxed and supported me at every turn.

When it came time to push, Sally was counting and coaching me through each contraction alongside the hospital staff and my husband. I cannot say how grateful I am for Sally. Looking back - I am beyond grateful to have had a doula at all - and specifically Sally, who helped me through EVERY stage of labor. She captured some beautiful photos of my son being born, helped with skin-to-skin and first latch, and stayed after to make sure we didn't have any further questions. After almost 24 hours at the hospital she was still our rock. Additionally, Sally has been extremely supportive postpartum - answering newborn / new parent questions via text and reaching out to make sure we recovering well. She truly cares and it shows in her work. I am so grateful!
