“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!”

“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!”
