Each birth is so unique! I am so glad I have the opportunity to serve and support the moms that cross my path! Here is another testimony of an All Things Doula baby!
My first delivery was rough; intervention led to more intervention. So when we found out we were expecting again, I dove into researching other options. It was in that research that I learned about doulas, what they do, and eventually found Sarah. I set up a meeting to chat about what I wanted, to hear her experiences, and we ended up talking for three hours! I felt so comfortable and at ease right from the start.
Sarah was always ready to answer my questions and responded very quickly. I’m not even sure how many times I sent her a text, “Is this normal?” even though this was my second baby only to have her respond in just a few minutes with an answer. When I went into labor, she was there as soon as I was being moved into a labor and delivery room. Sarah helped me get through contractions for as long as I could and then supported my decision on pain medication. During labor, Sarah took some fantastic pictures that are truly treasures. After my son was born, Sarah stood by me and told me what a fantastic job I did and how beautiful he was. With how intense labor can be, it was so nice and comforting to hear both of those things.
Sarah helped to support me and my husband during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and even postpartum. She came and visited baby and me in the hospital and also came to my house when he was about a week old. Now he’s nearly 7 weeks old, and I still text postpartum questions! I cannot recommend her enough. If I ever have another child, the first person I’m calling after family is Sarah.
