“Sky was our midwife and at about this time last year we were in constant contact with her since we were expecting our baby right about Thanksgiving.  From the time we transferred care to Sky which was pretty early on in our pregnancy up until the last postpartum appointment Sky was impeccably dedicated and qualified to help us with what turned out to be a miraculous birth story.

Sky is an expert at midwifery.  She is highly educated in western medicine standards of care, holistic methods (especially Ayurveda), experienced as a midwife (even in other countries) and has the coolest personality that just makes you excited to see her and learn from her about having your baby.  I don’t think she even rescheduled one appointment and she was always available 24/7.  We had to do a lot of natural induction techniques in order to get our daughter to come before our deadline and Sky pulled this off beautifully! She navigated us through a few minor complications and still gave us our dream home birth.”– Rene J. and Michael S. (Parents to Baby J.)

We always felt we were in great hands with Sky, from prenatal care to baby’s first checkups.  She carefully educated us on the most important points of caring for our baby through the whole process and was very knowledgeable.  When it came time for the birth she gave up a night of sleep for us and was very helpful and encouraging, walking us through the toughest moments of labor.  When baby came, she caught him in her arms and helped us quickly get started on mother-baby bonding bliss :)”–Liz and Israel V. (parents to Baby M.)

We loved Sky’s down-to-earth approach and sense of humor during our pregnancy.  She helped us achieve the birth we wanted without medical intervention. Sky worked beautifully with the hospital staff, who we overheard complimenting her work.  I can’t imagine our experience without Sky.  We feel very fortunate to have had her as our doula and would highly recommend her to others.” –Carrie and David (mom and dad to Baby C.)

“When my partner and I realized that my cycle had me ovulating on a vacation, we decided to look into having a midwife in Hawaii do an IUI. I did some research and found Sky’s webpage. My partner and I were both blown away by her awareness and compassion and immediately knew we wanted her to do it. From start to finish I could not have imagined a better experience. She involved my partner in the process and let her push the syringe. She was the perfect 3rd person to be present for such an intimate experience. If you and your partner are interested in trying on you vacation you should definitely contact Sky. Sperm pickup was from UPS and was really straightforward. Even if we don’t conceive this month, I feel so grateful to have gotten to have such a wonderful and nurturing experience.” — Jessie E.

“I always knew I wanted to have a home birth. I was having a difficult time finding the kind of Midwife care I was looking for so I was beyond thankful when we found Sky. She is down to earth, easy going, professional and knowledgeable. She put my partner at ease about having a home birth.  I looked forward to my appointments with Sky, she was like a wonderful friend who was nurturing and caring for me. Through our birth Sky was calm, collected, confident and made me feel safe and strong.  Her postpartum care is unbelievable. It was so amazing to have at home care like that after birth. We were sad when our care ended and will choose her again in future pregnancies.” – Leah C. (mom to Baby M.)

“Sky was at my birth and made it an incredibly peaceful and enjoyable experience. She massaged my legs while I was in the birthing tub (it took some real talent to be that agile!), made sure I was well hydrated and fed during labor (she even spoon-fed me oatmeal, how great is that?!), and was a calming presence at my side the entire time. Additionally, she helped my partner know what to do throughout the labor and explained very articulately and calmly how he could support me physically and emotionally throughout labor. We were beyond pleased with Sky; her calming demeanor is simply incredible. I recommend her to all my friends considering a doula!” –Emily W. (mom to Baby R.)
