It is the greatest privilege to be invited into someone’s birth process. Below are some kind words from the students and client’s Samantha was lucky enough to serve.
My husband and I immediately clicked with Sam on our first meeting. She was very thorough in her walk through of what to expect during birth and listened attentively to our wishes. We actually did not come up with a birth plan because I trusted her judgement implicitly and I am so glad that I found her thru another mother I knew.
I was her first homebirth and she was sensational. Even my midwife was astounded! I heard Sam’s voice consistently for the 15 hours of labor I was in. When I got annoyed by my husband, she was the calm that made me focus on getting my baby out. She reasoned with me and made me hear the choices I had to make when no one else could (present were my husband, midwife, Sam and her back-up doula.)
Sam held me up mentally and physically without wavering and for that no price can be placed on that kind of support. Even after the birth and I had difficulties, she was on hand to comfort and provide needed additional help without question.
We love you for being wholeheartedly present for us always.
