“My husband and I never considered using a doula until we took a birthing class. The class opened our eyes to how beneficial a doula would be for the birth of our first child. We decided to start looking to hire a doula immediately since we were pressed on time and our baby was due in a few weeks. We reached out to Sandra and she promptly responded to us. After we met with a few other doulas, we knew that Sandra was the right choice for us.
From our first meet, Sandra was not only extremely professional and knowledgable, but also very warm and tender. She was available for me at all times leading up to our labor and delivery and was so informative, allowing us to make the best choices for the birth we wanted. When I did go into labor, she provided excellent support for myself and my husband. Through my labor, which lasted over 24 hours, Sandra was right by my side the entire time. She kept me focused and comfortable. Sandra brought with her to the hospital a variety of things that helped me through labor, even cooled wash cloths for my forehead! Even though we had a few unexpected turns during the course of my labor, she worked with us when we needed a change of plan, supporting us and our decisions through the entire process.
Sandra truly helped make our birth a wonderful experience. We are so thankful to have found her. I highly recommend her!!”

I Originally decided to hire a doula because I was nervous to to give birth to my son and my husband was scared he wouldn’t know how to help me. I am so happy my husband convinced me that it was the right move. When I first e-mailed Sandra was very easy to communicate with. When meeting her in person I immediately felt comfortable with her . She has an extremely calm and comforting energy and was very professional. The day of my birth we called Sandra in the middle of the night and she came quickly. Sandra helped me with pain management, hitting pressure points she knew just how to comfort me without annoying me at my most vulnerable and hormonal time. I never once felt judged by Sandra and she knew just what to say to get through my long labor. There are not many people in this world who are doing exactly what their life mission is, I truly believe this is what Sandra is meant to do. She helped and comforted me and encouraged me in so many ways that I didn’t even know I needed. I always tell new mom’s now you don’t know what you don’t know until you are there. I feel so blessed to have had her there. I feel hiring Sandra helped me avoid having a C-section and gave me the strength I needed at that time . I am forever thankful for her and feel it was money well spent. I highly recommend hiring a doula and meeting Sandra because she is amazing !
