“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!”

“Sandra was the most perfect doula for us. Throughout the uncertainties of the pandemic, she found ways to educate us and calm our myriad anxieties about being first time parents. She taught us how to advocate for ourselves during the birth experience, gave us so many tips for comfort during labor, and was on call for virtual support when the hospital rules weren’t going to allow doulas to attend births in person. In the end, the regulations lifted right before my due date and Sandra was able to be there in person in the end! She brought such a calming presence. After our daughter came, her postpartum checkups really allowed my husband and me to talk through settling into our new roles. It was all enormously helpful. Sandra, I can’t recommend you enough! Hope we get to stay in touch.”

“Sandra is just wonderful! We were expecting twins– our first children–and ended up having a C-section. Sandra had helped us prepare for all of what happened. After the twins arrived, she helped us process and adjust to our new life, she provided caring and gentle night care for the twins, and she was available for all of our (silly and not-so-silly) questions via text as we were learning how to take care of babies for the first time. We would highly recommend her to anyone!”

“Sandra was our doula for the recent birth of our daughter in March 2021. It was a great experience, and I would highly recommend her. She was extremely helpful in the pre-natal visits in helping us to think about decisions we’d need to make during the delivery process, as well as bringing up helpful hints for managing life after the baby’s arrival. One important thing for me was that I always felt she supported me in whatever decisions we thought were best for us, especially around the delivery. She was also with us on the delivery day for the majority of my labor and was extremely helpful during that process as well. Continuous coaching as well as an additional support person was a huge help for me, and I believe helped lead to a more satisfying delivery experience. She was a peaceful and reassuring presence during the entire experience, and we would definitely enlist her help again in the future.”

“Sandra was incredibly helpful as we navigated pregnancy during a pandemic. We took her online class and felt much more confident as we headed into delivery. Her tools and resources she offered were invaluable!”

Maya said on 7/29/2020:

“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.”

“We used Sandra as our doula for the birth of our daughter in early February 2020, and it was such a great decision. Her calming personality made such an impact during our birth experience (and before and after!). She was and continues to be such a great resource for all of our birth and baby-related questions. This was our first hospital delivery (first was at a birth center), and we had a lot of anxious feelings leading up to it since it was our first time. She was so great at helping us deal with those feelings. Any time we’ve had a question or concern about anything, she provided articles and thoughts that helped us prepare ourselves. I would absolutely include her again if we were going to have more children, but we are done 🙂 I can’t recommend her enough!”

Bob said on 11/13/2019:

“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.”

Lauren said on 1/23/2019:

“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!”
