“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!”

“I was very nervous and apprehensive about delivering my first baby, but Sandra helped ease many of my fears and worries. She actively helped my partner and I draft a birth plan that I was confident to share with my OBGYN. She helped set me up for success with so many different coping methods. On the day of delivery it was amazing to have her in the room. Her experience and calm energy was like a warm security blanket. Her soothing voice was there the whole time reminding me constantly that I could do it! While I’m sure she went to the bathroom and ate a snack at some point during the 12+ hours she was with me, I never felt her absence. With the help of her and my partner I delivered a healthy 8lb. 7oz. baby girl after 21 hours of unmedicated labor! Thank you Sandra for helping me find and see my own stregth with your kindness and judgement feee advice! Also, thank you for visiting a few days after she was born and showing me how to wear her in a wrap!”
