“For my first birth I didn't have a doula and I knew I had to have one for my second birth. Laura at Sage Roots was an obvious choice to me. She has such a calming presence and is very knowledgeable. I went into labor and Laura talked to me via texting in early labor. When I felt I needed it she met me at my house and helped my husband and I try various comfort measures. She helped him feel involved and the 2 of them together worked well together to help provide relief from contractions. We labored at home a few hours before deciding to go to the hospital. She helped me get settled and didn't miss a beat every time I had a contraction. She stayed by my side and always seemed to know what I needed and didn't even complain when I got amniotic fluid on her, she wiped my vomit, or she wiped my nose. She reassured my husband by her calming presence and helped me have the birth I had envisioned.
I could write a novel as it's still all fresh in mind! I would recommend Laura to anyone searching for a birth doula.” - Renee B.
