"EVERYONE NEEDS A POSTPARTUM DOULA! And you would be lucky to have Sierra! Knowing she would be available for me for whatever I needed when my babies got here gave me a lot of peace about the unknown. She came and did an in home private birth class that was so informative and came in really handy cause I had my babies a few days later! My babes had to stay in the hospital for 2 weeks after birth and she was an incredible support, both in person and over the phone! When we came home she did 1-2 overnights a week for about a month. She took amazing care of my babies and I got some much needed rest! Sierra was there for me in every way! Whether it was someone to talk to about mother in law stresses, or breast feeding struggles she was there. When I wanted someone to share the joys of small accomplishments with, she was there. Anytime I had a question about anything she was an amazing resource! if she didn't already know the answer she would find out! She gave me the encouragement and confidence I needed to really enjoy a time that can be incredibly difficult. I am forever grateful for her and all that she did for my family!" ~ Katie J., Mother of twin girls
"'Call me anytime. About anything!' This is what Sierra told me after speaking with me, a total stranger, for the first time. I knew she meant it, and I have taken her up on the offer. She truly is open to lending a helping hand, in this case sage advice, any time of the day. Every time I reach out, I finish our conversation feeling validated ('This is challenging!') yet also hopeful ('This gets better!') and more confident ('Watch your baby. Trust your instincts. Your baby will tell you everything!'). Sierra absolutely loves to talk about babies and nursing-her enthusiasm and awe over the wonders of the human body are infectious. She is truly doing her work on this earth, educating us new mothers, or soon to be parents, during a time that can feel overwhelming, exhausting, and confusing. Having Sierra has felt like a guiding star and grounding energy. She is a gift to my family." ~ Emilie W.
"Sierra was a life saver for my husband and I. We initially hired her for her private birthing classes. My husband and I work long hours and couldn't get off work for the classes at the hospital. We took her hypnobirthing class and her traditional birthing class and her breastfeeding class in order to prepare for the birth of our baby girl. Sierra was extremely helpful and knowledgable. Little did I know that hiring her for these classes would be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only because I felt very empowered by my knowledge during my delivery but because I knew I had support after. Sierra has helped me navigate my new life as a mommy by giving me breastfeeding support, helping me figure out my babies sleep cues and having someone to talk to about all of my concerns so I didn't call my midwife or pediatrician every day (first time mom here):)
Everyone should have Sierra on their side through pregnancy and after. Thank you so much Sierra!!!" ~ Celeste H.
"My husband and I took a private hypnbirthing class from Sierra. When we started, I thought it would be something interesting to look into, but was initially skeptical about how it would help in the birth of my baby. Sierra was great at answering all of our questions. She worked with our needs, and completely changed her planned lesson on occasion. She helped me to envision a calm and peaceful birth. I used a combination of hypnbirthing techniques and medical pain relief. The techniques I learned in Sierra's class helped me have a wonderful birth experience. It was calm and controlled, and was truely an enjoyable experience, despite the normal stresses associated with giving birth. Sierra was always calm and supportive and I am so glad to have had her as part of my birthing experience." ~ Shannon G.
"There is truly something special about Sierra. She is kind, loving and so passionate about educating and taking care of these sweet mommas before and after they give birth. She is well connected in the birthing community and has such a wonderful education in birthing, lactation help and postpartum care. I suggest her to anyone who is needing support weather it be a friendly voice over the phone or her coming into your home to help. She is amazing! Hire Sierra you won't regret it!" ~ Meagan H. (Birth Doula/ Team Mate)
"I took the HypnoBirthing childbirth education class 9 weeks before I had my baby. This baby was #3 but it was a whole new ball game for me. I was shooting for an un-medicated vaginal birth after 2 prior c-sections. Sierra helped me so much in class. I learned how to connect with my body and my baby. During labor I was able to use the HypnoBirthing tools which helped me cope and breathe my baby out. I never felt like I had to hold my breath, I was able to roar and use my breath to get him out in 2 contractions. I am so grateful for the love and support from Sierra and strongly encourage all to take her class, even if you are not a first time mom. The class was so beneficial for me, helping me really learn how to relax through hypnosis, and realize my own body's power!" ~ Meagan H. (As a Client)
"I took the hypnobirthing class at St. Mark's with Sierra Brooks. We drove all the way from Orem to take this weekly class from Sierra. I loved the way she presented the material and kept an open discussion for women who wanted to birth in many different ways. Sierra was always available via email, phone, or text to answer my questions. I felt like she was truely my advocate, wanting to support me without any personal agenda. She even gave me extra reading material for the areas where I wanted more help. I really feel like I have tools and education I need to have a successful birth day." ~ Tara M.
