Birth work

Sarah is simply magical and I can’t imagine our birth experience or pregnancy without her. She has a calm, gentle spirit that is so nurturing and comforting, you immediately feel at ease in her presence. She is level headed & confident in all recommendations and decisions that need to be made especially for first time parents that are really unsure about everything in the pregnancy and birth process. Having Sarah as our doula is the best decision we made for our family and the birth of our son, we can’t even put into words our gratitude and highest recommendations for her support services.

Having Sarah as our doula was the best decision that my husband and I made when it came to our birth experience! Her compassionate and supportive nature just draws you in and makes you feel safe and seen. She was such an integral part of our daughter’s birth, and as first-time parents, her wealth of knowledge and experience were so helpful during pregnancy, labor/birth, and postpartum. I cannot recommend Sarah enough if you are looking for a doula! My birth experience was so empowering and wonderful, and I am so thankful that Sarah was able to help with making that happen for me. Along with my husband, she was by my side through it all, and I will forever be grateful for that.

One of the scariest things with pregnancy is the knowledge that eventually one has to actually give birth. For first time Mothers, like myself, all one really knows about birth is what people hear in the movies and “horror stories” from other women. My husband and I were apprehensive so we took a birth prep class run by doulas where we learned a lot more about the stages and how a typical birth goes. We felt more confident but decided to hire Sarah to help us on the actual day. It was the best decision we could have done for the birth. The day itself, or night for us, flew by so quickly and at times was a rush of questions from doctors, nurses, ect. about birth plan and medical questions. Sarah acted as our advocate in the hospital when we were caught up in the moment and made sure that we had the birth that we had planned. She encouraged and taught my husband how to be present and aid me in my labor. Her knowledge and kind spirit was exactly what we needed and we can honestly say that we would not have been able to have the natural birth that we planned on without her support.

“Having Sarah by our side throughout late pregnancy, during labor & delivery and beyond was the best decision we could have made. She was instrumental in helping us prepare for the birth of our son, was always available for questions as we needed her, and has been a great support overall. But, hands down, her presence during labor and delivery was truly magical. She brings calm during the most intense moments and a sense of humor when it’s needed. She stood by my side, assisted my very worried husband, and guided us both as our baby came into the world. Post-birth, she has checked-in with us and gave expert advice as a LC as well. There aren’t enough words to describe my gratitude for all her kindness, knowledge and support!”

“As soon as we first met, I knew I wanted to have Sarah as my postpartum doula. Pretty quickly, I realized I wanted her with us for the birth of our twins too. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and personable. She helped prepare us for birth and was a life saver afterwards, providing tips and helping with everything from breastfeeding to house chores. Highly recommend her.”

-Jessica

“We hired Sarah Cole as our doula four months prior to the birth of our first child, and we could not have been happier with our decision. Everything about the pregnancy process was new to us, and Sarah made herself available to answer all our questions in the months leading up to our child’s birth, and she was absolutely invaluable throughout the big day. We often found her advice to be more helpful and personal than that of the medical staff we were working with.

During labor and delivery, Sarah’s expertise and experience were extremely useful, as she was able to provide reassurance, support, and guidance. She is a lovely person, and she made us feel comfortable and validated with every concern or question we had. We would highly recommend Sarah; she made the entire process exactly the way we’d hoped!”

Breastfeeding Support

Sarah was extremely responsive when I reached out to her and was at our house for an in-home breastfeeding consultation only 48 hours later. She was so helpful and listened to all our questions and issues. She offered great advice and thoughts and things have been much smoother since! She also checked in a few days later to see how things were going. I’m so glad that I reached out to her and am grateful for her quick help.

Postpartum

This is the second time that we have used Sarah as a postpartum doula and she’s just as amazing as we remember. She’s incredibly knowledgeable on so many aspects of the postpartum journey and was a wonderful resource for me when I had questions about breastfeeding, soothing techniques, and sleeping. She’s a wonderful confidant for the new mom as well. We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a postpartum doula!

Sarah was our postpartum doula after the birth of my daughter in August 2018, and I am so thankfrul that I found and hired her!  Sarah was there to help guide me through the first weeks of breastfeeding, to show us ways to help calm our daughter during her fussy moments, and to provide guidance regarding pumping and storing breastmilk in preparation of my return to work.  She is incredibly knowledgable and takes so much stress out of those first days, weeks, and months!  But what I found the most beneficial was how present Sarah was.  During my first weeks alone with the baby after my husband wente back to work, I knew that Sarah was checking her texts in case I had an urgent question, and that she would be able to come over and help me out if I felt like a nap was an absolute necessity or I was drowning under dishes and laundry!  No question was ever silly, and no insecurity was ever dismissed.  Sarah is an incredible mother to her kids, a reassuring guide to us new mamas, and now a wonderful friend.  I cannot recommend her enough.
