Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

I am happy to recommend Ildi Sebestyen as a birth doula.  She recently assisted my daughter with the birth of her daughter. I was my daughter's birthing partner, and we were both quite appreheisive about the delivery.  We were referred to Ildi by the instructor of the birth preparation classes we took at the hospital, since my daughter was very anxious about the delivery.

My daughter called Ildi and liked her immediately.  Ildi came to our house on two occasions prior to my daughter's labor.  We learned alot from her in those meetings, and felt less stressed.  My daughter went into labor shortly after the second meeting.  It was a long labor.  Ildi came to our house in the middle of the night to help assist.   The next night, when my daughter went into heavy labor, Ildi coached her and helped her to breath through the contractions, focus, and try different positions during the contractions.  We went to the hospital around 1:00 in the morning.  My daughter's labor continued all night, and all day - she worked hard and Ildi was there every step of the way.  Ildi was very calming for both my daughter and myself, and was great at explaining what was going on.  That evening, after many long hours of labor and trying to push the baby out, it was decided that a C-secion was needed.  Ildi and I were both allowed to be in the operating room, and her presence and support made an amazing difference for both of us.

Ildi is an angel on earth, I swear.   I really don't know what we would have done without her.   I would recommend Ildi to anybody who is looking for a  birth doula.  Just talk to her once and you'll know what I'm talking about.
