Testimonial for Sondra Whitehead, CD, CLE

We’re first time parents living far away from our families and it would not be an exaggeration to say that Sondra’s services were absolutely crucial.  

Sondra’s birth services included a few prenatal visits and we found them both to be really helpful.  One of them spent mostly going over our birth plan, which was great because our hospital pre-registration asked a ton of questions regarding our preference and we were bewildered by most of them.  Sondra clarified everything and helped give us suggestions for stuff we didn’t feel strongly about.  By the end we had a really clear-cut plan.


Sondra also really helped us figure out alternative birthing positions, lactation techniques and showed me (husband) how to apply counter pressure for my wife when contractions came about, which was useful because they lasted for days before my wife actually delivered.  Sondra was super communicative throughout this long labor and came over as soon as they started to help give pointers on how to ease the pain and when to go to the hospital.

Once we were admitted to the hospital Sondra set up a really nice ambiance with candles, scented oil and music.  I was really glad she was there for active labor because she was comforting and encouraging my wife the entire time and also made sure that the hospital staff was staying on track with our birth plan preferences when we were too frazzled to remember.  Contractions had lasted so long before hospital admission that both of us were exhausted when it was gametime, having an experienced advocate there was invaluable.  


Sondra also visited us after we’d brought our daughter home and we had a ton of questions for her, which she answered easily.  We’re extremely satisfied with the help she provided us and would recommend it to anyone, especially new parents.
