“When preparing for the birth of our second child we were determined to set up the most supportive birthing team possible. I’d wanted a drug free, natural birth with my first but it had ended full of intervention. I’d never known anyone to have a doula so I was a bit nervous but after meeting Sarah I instantly felt more supported and held in the lead up to the birth, during and in those weeks after. Sarah has incredible knowledge and experience and helped us shape a birth preferences that was informed, respectful and covered all possible things that could arise. We felt so prepared and empowered.
In the lead up to the due date Sarah helped suggest therapies that might assist me and help support baby’s position. The massage and osteopathic treatments I had at Nurtured Birth were the best I’ve ever had – the whole team are incredible at what they do and understand a pregnant woman’s body like no other.
During the birth Sarah was a gentle, supportive presence for both my husband and I. She worked respectfully with the rest of our birthing team, and having someone by our side the entire labour who we knew and had built a relationship with made such a difference. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sarah and the team to any of my friends and family for their future pregnancies! Thank you so much Sarah – together we were able to experience the birth we so desperately wanted and needed”
