I knew I needed Sandy by my side for my birth when she offered me a sip of water. Offering a sip of water may not seem significant, but let me explain………..
"I'm so grateful to Sandy for the support she gave my husband & I during my pregnancy, throughout my labour and after the birth of our son. Her guidance & caring nature, along with her experience, knowledge and passion for birthing babies makes her an excellent Doula. I can't imagine going through the birthing experience without her by my side. She was as much a support to my husband in his time of need, as she was to me throughout the whole journey. Thank you Sandy for being our rock when we needed you!
You have touched our lives!
We can't imagine going through our birthing experience without you. I'm so grateful for the foot rubs, the coconut water, the gentle suggestions to help ease the pain, the cuddles & that you were there for Andre, my husband, when I couldn't be. We love you back Sandy xox"

The Hypno birth class run by Sandy at Ballarat Birth Support is a very informative experience. Even though I am pregnant with my third child I felt that I still had a lot to learn in order to have my dream birth- a calm experience to welcome my baby into the world with plenty of opportunity to bond.
Sandy was instrumental in me achieving the birth I wanted: a natural, drug free VBAC in a hospital setting. Her care, knowledge and experience made my husband and I a stronger more effective birth team and gave us both confidence to do what we needed to do. I would never choose to birth without her again.
