“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!!”

“When I was looking to hire a doula to have my third baby and second VBAC, I knew immediately that Sandra was the right choice. Sandra was very personable and genuine. She maintained excellent communication with us througout the process and always showed a genuine interest in our family. She offered us a lot of resources and was always offering her advice and support throughout the pregnancy. Sandra has an extremely gentle and supportive approach to everything she does. This past birth I wanted a natural and unmedicated birth. I truly believe because of Sandra I was able to accomplish this. She was excellent in involving my husband and I feel that made my birth even more special, as I relied on both of them for physical and mental support. She was always there to reassure me that everything I was experiencing was normal and that I was doing a great job. My husband and I really appreciated everything she did and we highly recommend her!!”
