Sarah is a compassionate, warm spirit that has the effect of calming the spaces she inhabits. She worked with me throughout my second pregnancy to stave off the sciatica I suffered from throughout my first pregnancy. She successfully managed to keep the sciatica at bay through massage along with providing reprieve, relaxation and information throughout my second and third trimester. Her holistic approach to health and growth were very appreciated. Sarah was present throughout our labour in the hospital setting and was a tireless backbone during active labour and then birth. She lent herself beautifully to the calm atmosphere I was intent on creating. She helped manifest serenity in the room both physically and emotionally and was fully present and actively involved in every element of bringing our daughter into this world. From thoughtful gestures like bringing a hot water bottle, speakers, and twinkly lights to outfit the generic hospital room, to acting as my stirrups during pushing, to gently holding chilled cloths to my forehead and straws for liquids to my lips, no detail was overlooked.
Sarah was always present and supportive for both of us throughout the whole process. Even before the birth, she helped us with our birth plan and truly made us feel we could do this. Through the birth itself she had a caring and calm presence. It was amazing having Sarah part of our birthing team. I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking for added support during pregnancy and birth.
Our birth was Sarah's first.
However you would never have guessed this by how intuitive she was.
She was more aware of our needs in the moment than we were.
She read the situation as if it was her hundredth birth.
Both supportive and nurturing in all the right moments. Strong when needed and backed right off when not needed in the moment.
I could not have asked for a better doula and friend to be present.
Her massages were critical throughout.
Sarah came to see me some time after giving birth. Her massage was very relaxing yet invigorating, powerful yet very gentle. I could feel how her approach, manner and expertise were helping me heal my body. I will always be extremely grateful.
