Testimonial for Sarah Fielding

I was initially uncertain about hiring a doula.  Is it worth the expense? Do I really need it?  

After working with Sarah Fielding, I can say with absolute certainty that it is 100% worth it.  The peace of mind having her expertise, guidance, and encouragement regarding the pregnancy just a text or phone call away was worth it on its own.  The meetings with her also gave me and my partner very helful strategies and a good sense of what to expect from the whole process.  Not to mention that she works with an incredible team that provide extremely helpful articles, classes, etc pertinent to the stages of pregnancy and labor preparation.  

All of the above is high value enough, but Sarah truly showed the benefit of a doula when it came to go time.  I ended up going in for induction because of late pregnancy hypertension and she met us at the hospital to make sure I was settled and understood what was going on in these beginning stages.  She frequently checked in on me and was true to her word of being a phone call away at any time when we hit a point where things were not progressing as planned and decisions needed to be made about induction methods, manualy breaking water, etc and it also happened to be 3 in the morning.  She gave us excellent guidance and talked through the options wher we felt we could make an informed decision.  She came back to the hospital not long after that and stayed with me through to my being transferred to my post partum room, made sure I got skin to skin with my daughter even though I'd had a c-section and ensured I got a good latch with her for her first feeding. She also notably had an established, postive rapport with many of the medical professionals I worked with, which to me speaks volumes. There's so much to say regarding my experience working with Sarah, but I've run out of letters allowed on this form.
