As a single woman, I employed Lila Silver as a labour doula to provide information and emotional support throughout my pregnancy and during the labour process itself. At the time, I did not have much money and Lila was willing to offer her services at a considerably reduced rate to accommodate my circumstances. I experienced a fair degree of anxiety during the pregnancy, but Lila was always able to provide reassurance and evidence-based information to address my concerns. If she was unable to answer my questions, she sought out the experience of others and always got back to me in a timely fashion. Lila was able to find me post-partum doula support within my budget at my request, something that helped enormously once I had the baby and was figuring out how to be a mother.
I found Lila to be competent, compassionate and caring and was very glad I had her support during this time. At every stage of my pregnancy and labour, she made me feel comforted and supported, and was my constant cheerleader. I would recommend Lila very highly for anyone looking for a labour doula.
Lila is warm, kind, knowledgeable & carries a strong quiet confidence. She was very good at listening to my wishes and helped me plan & work towards them. She really made me feel safe and supported. It was a pleasure getting to know her and an honour to have her bedside.
Lila is very pleasant, caring, undertanding and easy to talk to. She was very supportive of me and my husband throughout the whole journey. Eventhough I ended up having C-Sec due to I was not dilating nor progressing as expected, but Lila stayed the entire process. She came during the early phase of my labour at 5:00am and stayed until after surgery at the recovery area at 11:00pm. She helped us took pictures and we were like friends there. She visited us before and after delivery at home and brought us her absolutely delicious home made blueberry muffins. We had such a positive and memorable encounter with Lila. In fact, until now I still send her pictures of our precious daughter for update. We are happy we asked her to be one of our support system. We wish her all the best.
