“I first met with Sandy towards the end of my first trimester. She instantly came across as kind, caring and dedicated and we clicked straight away... Her prenatal care was more than we could have expected. Through numerous visits with us we were able to devise a birth plan and talk about our ideal birth. Sandy was accepting of all our choices and never once judged us. She provided us with education about birth, as well as current research and literature which ensured all our birthing decisions were well informed.
The day before I went into labour we had a visit with Sandy who talked through all our fears and concerns. This put us at ease and the next morning I went into labour. Sandy was a tremendous phone support during early labour, and as soon as we requested her she was at our house straight away. She brought a calmness and peace to what would have otherwise been a stressful morning. She guided me through each contraction and never left my side.
Her encouragement and genuine passion for birth helped me achieve the drug free, natural delivery i had dreamt of. After the birth Sandy stayed with us until I had breastfed and was feeling confident. I had her encapsulate my placenta which she had back to me the next day. When our baby had to be admitted to the special care nursery, Sandy was there with us - a shoulder to cry on and someone to remind us of all our options.
When we arrived home 5 days later Sandy checked up on us regularly and was more than happy to answer all my silly first time mum questions (day or night). When I started to struggle during the postpartum period, she again was a shoulder to cry on and spent hours just sitting with me and listening to my thoughts and feelings.
I can honestly say we only got through everything because of Sandy’s compassion and dedication to helping us. We will be eternally grateful for Sandy coming into our lives and being with us through the most exciting journey we have been on. We will definitely have her involved in any future pregnancies!
Thankyou Sandy for everything you have done for us and our newest edition to the family”
