“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.”

“Sandra was a kind and helpful presence in our lives both before and after the birth of our twins. She was always available to listen and provide direction to well-reasoned and researched information about pregnancy and childbirth. I never felt that Sandra was telling me what to do, but rather supporting my husband and I to make the right decision for us and our babies. She went above and beyond in coaching us in Spinning Babies to try to turn our breech little one and to provide me some relief from the lower back pain at the end of pregnancy. Her assistance in advance planning for postpartum also really made things run smoothly for us. Due to COVID and other circumstances, Sandra was not able to be there at the birth of our twins, but we felt her positive presence and influence still. Sandra provided us with postpartum doula services and I looked forward to every time she came to our home. She calmed me both through her words and attitude in that early period of sleep deprivation and wondering how my husband and I were ever going to take care of two tiny children during a global pandemic. I would unreservedly recommend hiring Sandra; she combines total professionalism and pre/postnatal knowledge with a steady and kind presence in even the most stressful times.”
