Sabrina is absolutely amazing and a true God send! I honestly don't know what my husband and I would've done without her support. Even through my lengthy and complicated labor she stayed by our sides the entire time.
She is extremely knowledgeable and showed up with a bag full of helpful things to make the laboring process/environment as calm as we wanted in the beginning stages and then productive as possible when things really got going. She was able to explain options that were given to us an answered questions we had. Sabrina even danced through contractions with me, knew exactly when and where to apply helpful pressure and walked me through a variety of breathing and coping techniques until we found what worked best in my situation.
My husband was also very happy that she offered tips and tricks for him to assist in helping with pain management and support throughout the entire process. We were a team on a mission to get baby girl here!
I knew she was going to be a great from the initial consultation. She really made the effort to establish a good and trusting relationship that turned out to play a huge role when things got intense. Even after baby was here she stayed to make sure breastfeeding was established and still keeps in contact with us postpartum.
I can't speak highly enough of her!! I did a lot of research going into the labor and delivery process but the one thing I truly believe made the biggest difference was having Sabrina by our sides! Doula is 100% her true calling and I am so beyond thankful she was there with us!
Sabrina was amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better doula! Stuck by our side through 37 hour labor. I would highly recommend her! It wasn't all about me, but she helped me as a first time Dad with the labor tips and with some emotional support as well.
Sabrina is an amazing doula. The Pre-natal education she gave us helped us prepare for a wild labor and delivery. She was an amazing support at our home and during the trip to the hospital. During Covid times, she couldn’t be with us in person at the hospital, but the virtual support she provided us during the process was invaluable. The tips and tricks she gave myself and my husband helped us deal with a 36 hour labor and 4 hours of pushing! I highly recommend Sabrina and her doula services! As someone who has gone through many loses, she made me feel comfortable and safe.
After watching my sister's first delivery and seeing how difficult it was and how unhelpful her nurse was, I knew I wanted a doula for my first baby. I am so happy I met Sabrina and decided to have her as my Doula. I truly feel that I could not have gone through my labor process without her. She is an exceptional doula and human being. Having her at the hospital made me feel at peace. She went above and beyond to make me comfortable and explained everything in detail so that I was able to make educated decisions about my labor.
To be honest, giving birth has always been one of my biggest fears. I was scared about getting induced, getting my epidural, and actually pushing the baby out and potentially tearing. Sabrina calmed all of my fears. Anytime I had an ache or pain, Sabrina knew exactly what to do! During the Pitocin, she fully explained the process for me and helped me with breathing techniques during my contractions. During the epidural, she had me focus on her voice to help distract from the actual epidural. Then when it came time to push my sweet girl out, Sabrina coached me through the pushing process. She was able to help me adjust the way I was pushing so each push was effective and I didn’t waste my energy. These are only a few examples of the amazing service she provided.
I really appreciate that Sabrina individualizes her care for each person. I feel like she catered to my specific needs and knew what was important to me. If you are thinking about using a doula, I highly recommend Sabrina. You will not be disappointed!!
Sabrina gave the best service i could ever ask for. She made me feel relaxed and was sensitive to my situation as a surrogate. She amazed me with her knowledge, skills and passion. I would recommend her service. You will not be sorry! Thank you Sabrina for all you did for me.
Where to start? Sabrina is absolutely amazing! she followed me through my entire pregnancy (with twins, and high risk), which was definitely not easy. she coached me through several false alarms, and was my saving Grace through what seemed to be the longest and roughest pregnancy ever! she was graceful, knowledgeable, so sweet, and far beyond caring! I can't thank her enough for everything she did for my husband and I, and I wouldn't recommend anybody else! she's perfect!
Sabrina was ahhhhmaaayyyyyzinggg. She was with me for my vbac, which was a success because of her! She did things behind the scenes that I didn’t even know about until later. She kept me calm, always told me what a great job I was doing. She helped me make the tough decisions knowing what I would do if my mind was completely clear and thoughts weren’t getting interrupted by contractions. She spent her anniversary dinner with me instead of her husband, that sweet soul. And Sabrina has a way of making everyone around her feel completely relaxed and never judged by her. She was perfect for me and my birthing experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ five stars all the way!
We decided to use a doula for our second pregnancy to help assist and navigate during these trying times in the midst of this pandemic. Sabrina is very professional and has a vast variety of knowledge! It was a wonderful experience all around. She was able to ease the stress of the current situation by being a strong advocate, that was willing to fight for our families wishes. Did I forget to mention she is a great photographer as well!! Overall, I would recommend her to anyone having a child and I can't rave about her enough
Sabrina is a great resource for information and a great listener which made the entire birthing process less intimidating for a first time mom. It was very comforting and reassuring to know there was someone else with my best interest in the room helping, at times even when I didn’t realize. I was impressed with her ability to work with my spouse and I as well as the doctors and nurses for the best overall experience.
Sabrina did a great job helping my wife with the ECV and delivery of our first child, which ended up being a C-section since the baby was breech. Having Sabrina in the room was like having a birthing coach on your side that would bring up things to the doctors/nurses that I wouldn't have thought to ask.

I can't speak highly enough of Sabrina and Q City Doula. Her support, especially surrounding my mental health, was incredibly beneficial throughout my high risk pregnancy and following months in the NICU. She went above and beyond - providing empathy and compassion when prognosis were hard, helped me minimize my anxiety and focus on the joy of finally meeting my twins during my (very early) emergency c section, and gave me effective advice to work through trauma and fear during my time in the NICU. She was amazing throughout my pregnancy. I highly recommend Sabrina and Q City Doula, especially to moms with anxiety, depression, or who have a high risk pregnancy.
Sabrina was my wife's Doula, and it was a game changer. She helped me understand what I can do to help my wife through delivery and I was able to rely on her as to what was normal, and what to be concerned about. Sabrina best equipped both my wife and myself to welcome our first child into the world. Best decision you'll ever make.
Throughout my pregnancy, I had been going back and forth about having a Doula (If you’re unsure like I was, have a Doula, and I highly suggest Sabrina!). Best decision I made! Ten days before my due date, I had this gut feeling that my husband and I really needed a Doula to support our birthing preferences. Boy were we lucky to have Sabrina by our side during the birth of our son! She is a wonderful person and an INCREDIBLE Doula. Prior to my due date, she equipped me with knowledge and provided tips I didn’t even know were out there…even after all the reading I had done, Sabrina was more helpful than any book. During Early Labor, which began on Thanksgiving Day, Sabrina made sure I was comfortable and calm. She even came over to our place on Thanksgiving Day to support my needs and keep early labor moving along. Again, I would not have had any clue or really known what to do without her input. Basically, my husband and I would have been totally lost without Sabrina! She made us both very comfortable during the whole process. I was amazed at how it seemed she was reading my mind before going into labor, during labor and after. Somehow, she just knew what I needed and when I needed it without me having to say a word. Sabrina provided us with much needed confidence and comfort to get through all stages of labor. – Ensuring the atmosphere was relaxing and just what I needed to have the birthing experience I imagined. Once we returned home, Sabrina shared additional support through her postpartum visit. Again, giving us information we didn’t even think of or know we may need. She really understands how to learn about a person’s wants or needs, equip them with appropriate knowledge, and make them feel safe, confident, and empowered! A week after giving birth, my husband and I were still talking about our amazement with Sabrina how we could NOT have gotten through it all without her. She truly has an amazing gift! Thank you for everything, Sabrina!
