“We are so glad that we had Sandra with us during the birth of our first child and for the weeks before and after as well. She has a very calming and easygoing presence and yet will speak out on your behalf when needed. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about birth, so we learned a lot through her and felt well prepared for both the labor/delivery and the postpartum period. Sandra was always very responsive, checking in on us many times and making sure that our birth preferences were understood and heard. We can’t recommend Sandra enough!”

“We had such a wonderful experience with Sandra as our birth doula. My husband and I credit her hard work as the reason we were able to have such a smooth induction process and ultimately un-medicated delivery. She provided a calm, steadfast presence in our delivery room and provided the hands-on interventions and tools needed for managing contractions. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a birth doula!”

“My husband and I are first time parents and we were on the fence about whether to hire a doula. Minutes (seconds, really) after meeting Sandra we knew we wanted her to be a part of our pregnancy and birthing experience. Sandra was the peaceful, compassionate, nonjudgmental guide we didn’t know we wanted; She provided useful resources, distilled overwhelming amounts of information, and empowered us to make informed decisions. She helped me tap into the confidence I needed when I was feeling anxious during pregnancy and offered many useful tools that made the ups and downs feel more manageable. Sandra provided unparalleled support during my challenging delivery, striking the perfect balance between hands-on support, holding space, and checking in. She has also been a tremendous resource to us as we navigate new parenthood. We are deeply grateful that we’ve had the chance to benefit from Sandra’s knowledge, wisdom, and overall loveliness!”

“We strongly recommend Sandra for ANYONE looking for a Doula. This was our first pregnancy and we couldn’t ask for a better support person – she is knowledgeable, kind, a great listener and advocate, and was a calming presence throughout my pregnancy, labor, and early postpartum.
Her wealth of experience allows her to tailor the experience based on our personal preferences. We appreciated her support with providing evidence based information to empower us to make informed decisions. If she didn’t have the answer to one of our questions – she would put us in touch with the right resources to get us the information we needed.
Don’t hesitate to book Sandra as your Doula – you will be glad you did!”

“I cannot put into words how incredible Sandra is. She was our doula for the births of both of our children and each time I feel like I couldn’t have done it without her. Her calming presence got me through the unexpected twists and turns that sometimes happen with pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. She made sure that I had the knowledge and courage to advocate for myself with my care team. She ensured that we were thinking and planning ahead for our own needs as well as the needs of our new baby and family. It felt like a dear friend looking out for me.”
Mary said on 10/27/2022:
“We were so happy to have found Sandra when we started getting overwhelmed with all of the conflicting information and endless opinions about labor, birth, and postpartum out there. Sandra was an excellent mentor in helping us navigate our options and figure out a plan that would suit us best. She was incredibly informative without being at all judgmental. As a first-time mom, she helped give me the confidence I needed going into this huge new chapter of life. I am so grateful to have found her and would recommend her to anyone looking for support through pregnancy and postpartum!”

“We were lucky to have Sandra for the birth of both of our sons. When we became pregnant for the second time, there was no doubt that we were going to have her attend. We had two fairly different birth experiences but in both cases, Sandra’s steady, calm demeanor helped us through the toughest moments. Her visits before and after were so helpful. She was so knowledgeable and helped us prepare for all kinds of birth situations. Sandra is a wonderful doula and I can’t recommend her enough!”
David said on 6/8/2022:
“Words cannot fully express how much Sandra Crawford means to our family. We took advantage of her Evidence Based Birth class and her full birth doula services. Both had a meaningful influence on our birth experience, preparing my wife and me for all the decisions and emotions we faced from pregnancy to birth and early parenthood. At every step — prenatal home visits, labor, and birth support, postpartum visits, and countless phone calls and texts — she was a trusted confidant, the voice of reason, and an overall one-woman support system. Now, we consider her something even more, a dear friend. Having her present for the birth of our son was an unexpected gift and something our family will cherish forever. One day, we cannot wait to introduce her to our dear son. Thank you, Sandra!”

“We can’t say enough good things about our experience with Sandra! My husband and I have always been uncomfortable in medical environments, so we wanted a doula that would be comforting, as well as knowledgeable and supportive. Sandra was exactly that! We learned so much from the Evidence Based Birth® class she lead and the prenatal consultations helped us feel so much more confident leading up to the birth. Her presence at the birth was also very comforting and she provided us with information and support to help us make the decisions that were best for us. She was also very professional and kind in her interactions with all of the hospital staff. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an informed and compassionate doula!”
Sandra said on 10/27/2021:
“We were extremely lucky to have Sandra follow and support us through our pregnancy and be part of our journey. Sandra is such a caring, calming, sweet soul and was an exceptional source of information, support and comfort throughout our pregnancy.
She was always readily available, and responded quickly and knowleagebly to all our messages. We also found her EBB (Evidence Based Birth) class very enjoyable and informative, and highly recommend it to any first-time parents.
Sandra is truly the best, professionally and personally. Book her and see for yourself!”
