“My husband and I decided to hire a doula in hopes of achieving a drug-free birth. I contacted Sandra and she got back to me immediately. At our first meeting, I knew her calming presence and vast knowledge were just what we were looking for. Sandra met with us two more times, helping us write a birth plan and showing us comfort measures to use throughout the last weeks of my pregnancy. She also checked in with me frequently, especially as I became overdue. She gave me some great suggestions to help me with any discomfort.
At 41 weeks, I ended up being induced for low fluid. Having had a previous induction, I knew the pain that lay ahead. Sandra was there every step of the way. She was able to anticipate my needs better than I could on my own! Thanks to her support, I was to labor without an epidural, which was my ultimate goal. Her coaching and caring got me through every step of the way.
Her support did not end there, however. Sandra stayed after the birth of our baby to make sure were were comfortable and settled in. She then visited us one more time to see how we were adjusting as a family of four.
Overall, I cannot recommend her enough. I couldn’t have had the birth I wanted without her support. My recovery has been a breeze. Sandra is a fantastic doula and I would recommend her to anyone!”

“Sandra was the perfect guide and companion during my wife’s pregnancy. Not only did she visit us twice in the weeks leading up to the birth to talk about various techniques and to help create our birth plan, but she also texted and otherwise communicated with us frequently throughout the whole process. She was always available and willing to help.
For any fathers or fathers-to-be that are considering hiring Sandra, she was a fantastic member of our little birth team. I was worried that hiring a doula would leave me out of the process, but Sandra assured me that she was there to support not only my wife but me as well. And she absolutely delivered on her promise.
She reached out multiple times after the birth as well to check on us and our son and to offer some welcome new-parent advice. Her guidance throughout the whole process was invaluable, and we would definitely use her services again.”
