Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

I am so glad we found Ildi and decided to work with her as our doula. My first birth was a c-section for a breech baby but this time I made plans to work towards a Trial of Labor After C-Section (TOLAC) and hopefully end up with a Vaginal Birth After C-Section (VBAC). The more I read about women who had pursued TOLAC and VBAC, everyone recommended finding a doula. When I got a referral for Ildi and my husband and I met with her we were very excited and knew she would be a great help! We really enjoyed the visits we had with her before labor and all the resources she shared with us as we went on the journey of a second pregnancy. When I went overdue to 41 + 1, Ildi was great at helping me stay calm and focused on the goal everytime I emailed or texted her with my fears. In the end, my body went into labor on its own and Ildi was there for my 13 hour all natural trial of labor, real labor, and successful VBAC with my sweet baby Thomas! Ildi was a calm presence helping me through each contraction, keeping my husband and me calm and taken care of, helping support our birth plan even when new medical professionals arrived on each shift, and so much more! We couldn't have had our TOLAC/VBAC or natural birth without her assistance and care. I also loved the post-partum visits with her, it was so fun to debrief the birth experience with her and watch her hold my baby whose birth she helped make so wonderful.  I would recommend Ildi to anyone and hire her again if/when we choose to have another child!
