Testimonial for Sarah McCabe, MA, CD(DONA)

We were originally a couple that was not looking to hire a doula. As a young, healthy pregnancy who was under the supervision of a midwife i was not sure the service would benefit us and the cost was something we were aware of so close to welcoming a baby. After hearing a friend's positive experience and weighing out our options we proceeded with hiring Sarah at her recommendation. I am so glad that we had her! She has a wonderful calm demeanor, and I found an even mix between holistic and medical based care. I never felt judged for wanting an epidural or hospital birth, and her ability to be able to explain things in an easy to digest way was comforting. She showed me how to hand express properly and collect colostrum, which was very helpful. Going in to labour can feel very scary and to have her in my home through the early stages with my husband and I creating a very calm environment, showing us ways to cope through contractions and new ways to relieve pain was something we were both so thankful for. If not for her we would have gone to the hospital 4-5 hours sooner and certainly been sent home. She was present through the birth and helped create a calm environment in the hospital as well. She had great rapport with my mideife. She offered support to myself and my husband - having someone there who's entire job is to support you is so comforting. After the baby came she stayed with us until we were settled in the next ward. We have seen her once so far postpartum - she helped us through our first bath, how to properly babywear, and making sure I was doing well emotionally and talking through the birth experience, which wasn't something I had realized I needed but felt much lighter afterwards. I am so glad we decided to go with Sarah in the end and would recommend her services to anyone asking. If it is something you can manage financially it is 100% worth investing in your comfort and feeling safe for what can be a scary and totally unknown experience.
