Testimonial for Sarah Fielding

This was my first time working with a Doula and I am so glad that it was Sarah! Sarah made my VBAC a reality.

From our first meeting, I was excited to work with Sarah because her personal birth stories aligned with mine. I was a home birth hospital transfer to cesarean for my first and had a very unsupportive team so it was really important for me to have the best team possible to try for a VBAC.

Sarah gave me tons of resources prior to labor that I made use of. Her recommendations for chiropractor, pedicure, probiotics and so much more worked out really well for me. She had no problem hanging out and answering all of my (long winded) concerns and questions and even reached out to the head of midwifery at Henrico Doctors Hospital when my midwife had a question that Sarah couldn't answer.


When it came to labor, Sarah made sure I was comfortable, fed and hydrated, and doing important positional changes. She was patient with my complaining and showed my husband counter pressure techniques to use. She noticed any time I was having a contraction and made sure to quickly get to me for relief. She helped set up a beautiful vibe in my birthing spaces too!


I ended up being another hospital transfer this time, and Sarah had the hospital roll out the red carpet for me! She was a great resource to bounce my feelings about transferring off of and helped me feel confident in the decision. She has an incredible network at the hospital, having worked with most of the nurses and midwives that were on that night. It was a long labor and Sarah stayed the whole time without complaint and was still very attentive to my contractions and recommended helpful position changes. 


Sarah really made my experience a positive one even though it didn't go as planned. I felt safe and cared for through the whole process thanks to her!
