I felt totally confident in my own ability to make it through labor knowing I was in your care. Thank you!” —Alli

“Megan (Sandra’s assistant) and her words, touch, and support stick out in my memory of the birth. I felt like she knew what I needed to hear when I needed to hear it.

I am very grateful for her kinds words – more than I can put into words.” —Linda

“Little did we know that one simple phone call could transform into the best decision we’ve ever made. Your capacity for professionalism, knowledge, AND love are beyond measure.

We simply cannot thank you enough.” —Kaitlyn
