Service introduction

As a Birth Doula, I offer support throughout your pregnancy, labor and postpartum period. It is truly an honor for me to hold space for you during such an important time in your lives and I value my relationship with each new family. I can provide resources you may need in the community, answer questions about your specific birth location or in general about labor and birth. We go over comfort measures that can be used in labor whether you are planning to be medicated or unmedicated and I help you and your partner navigate the many ins and outs of pregnancy and new parenthood in the United States.

Let me just say birth cannot truly/fully be imagined or described. The experience has no words and is full of emotions. The initial road was a little rocky for the relationship; however, Saron was very transparent, listened to what was being expressed, and we were able to connect. Myself and family provided what we wanted...unmedicated natural birth center birth. Saron provided an abundance of needed information and guidance. During birth, I am not gonna lie, at some points I felt as if I was gonna give up. She knew exactly what to say/do that made me find strength I never knew existed. Even after his birth she still checks in. Whenever the time comes for our next baby she is the only doula I want by my side because I know she has our back. She is a person we will forever be grateful to have apart of our lives. If you have the opportunity to connect with Saron, I strongly advise to do it. You wont regret it.

As a SMBC, Saron was invaluable for the birth of my son. She is a calm nonjudgmental supportive presence. She was there while I labored and then when I needed to make the difficult decision to have an emergency c section. I would 1000x recommend her as a doula.

This is a Saron appreciation post! Saron was our birth doula who supported and guided my husband and me as we brought our son earth side. Throughout our pregnancy and labor/birth journey, Saron was a centering light and a calming balm when we needed her most. Saron helped us discern challenging decisions as we maneuvered a labor/birth that looked much different than what we had imagined. Through it all, Saron’s strength, compassion, and care shined through to help us feel empowered, strengthened, and safe as we journeyed to welcome our son into the world. Saron helped us every step of the way during labor/birth to, as she puts it, surrender to the unimaginable. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Saron. We love you very much. We connected with Saron through Rooted Birth which is an amazing doula collective here in San Antonio. Throughout pregnancy, we learned how deeply important doulas, as well as midwives and other birth workers, are to reproductive justice and maternal health. Saron practices and imagines a more liberatory world where birth is empowering, safe, and healing. This is essential, life-giving work in a world where white supremacy, capitalism, and patriarchy try their damndest to control and manipulate the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum process. We are so thankful to continue learning from Saron to imagine, create, and practice a world that can be!
