Welcome, expecting mothers and families!

**NOTE: In light of current local policies and recommendations regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), virtual doula support is now available! Consultations, prenatal & postpartum visits, labor support, babywearing consultations and the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class are also available virtually.**

The birth of a child is an awe-inspiring, amazing experience that holds the power to build families while transforming every person involved.  It is my passion to provide women and families with support – both emotional and physical – as well as the information and tools they need to feel empowered in creating a positive birth experience.

How a woman is supported throughout her pregnancy and labor plays a great role in the way she gives birth and in how she will feel about the experience afterward.


It is my goal to ensure that you are well prepared to enter confidently into childbirth & the journey of parenthood.

“I first found Sandra on doulamatch.com and initially chose her based on her proximity to my house. When my husband and I first met her though, we chose her to be our doula for so much more than that! Sandra is caring, knowledgeable, and you can be assured that she will be your advocate every step of the way. Not only did she answer every phone call and text message throughout my pregnancy but she stayed with me and my husband through 30 hours of labor. Sandra also has PLENTY of resources for any questions or concerns you may have from pregnancy weight gain to comfort measures during labor. Shortly after my water broke, I called Sandra and asked her to come to our house and she arrived at 2:30am. She rubbed my back during contractions, she allowed my husband to rest when he needed it, and she encouraged me to eat and drink during my labor. My husband and I truly believe we would not have had such a successful experience if it weren’t for Sandra and she will FOREVER be a part of our lives. Choosing someone to be a part of the biggest day of your life can be overwhelming but choosing Sandra will certainly ensure a positive birthing experience!”

“When I was pregnant, my husband and I decided to hire a doula. Our family needed a reliable, calm and knowlegable person to guide me through the pregnancy and labor! And we are so happy we found Sandra! From our first meet we felt very comfortable with her, we talked about what the ideal delivery would be for me and how we can make it happen!

When my labor started, she helped me feel comfortable and she inspired me to trust nature and my body for the process! Sandra was there throught out the whole time of my labor, coached with breathing and made sure I was comfortable and calm. I felt that I didn’t have to worry about anything!! Her presence made my delivery more smooth and joyful! I never believed before that labor and delivery could be such a great and powerfull delivery!!  I highly recommend her!”
