Testimonial for Sarah Fielding

The moment I met Sara, I knew she was the person we needed as birth support. In our initial meeting via zoom she described herself as the “Hermione Granger” of birth support: as a parent she had thrown herself into learning about all the options and evidence available, she wanted to be the most prepared for any scenario, and she had lived through several of those scenarios herself.

Sarah was a much-needed, like-minded source of validation, and update in some cases, to the information I remembered. Although, all the supports weren’t as direly necessary as the first time, it was such a comfort that they were there if I needed them. She kept me in check and helped me through each step of the third trimester as though we were friends and not client and provider.

During our labor support meeting, I was excited to push a human out of my body because I knew that my doula had literally anything and everything I could've possibly needed. In fact, I was disappointed with the expeditious & precipitous labor because I didn’t get to use anything she had. My son arrived so quickly that my husband commented, "did we even need the Doula for the birth?”


The birth experience I had was a literal dream. It was exactly what Sara and I discussed. It was everything I wanted the first time and didn't get. The real support, though, came after my son arrived.

When my son was admitted to the NICU, we weren't sure when we'd see him. My whole world turned upside down.Enter Sarah. The longest two days of my life were tolerable. She checked on me; she walked me through things. She was looking after me when I couldn't look after myself. Even after my son went home: for weeks & months later, Sara checked on me.  It's the support you hope you don't need, but are so, so grateful for.
