Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

My Doula was Ildi Sebestyen and she is amazing!  I can honestly say that my experience would have been so different without her.  The scariest part about giving birth the first time is not knowing what to expect.  Somone can tell you about their experience and you can read a million books, but you never know what to expect until you are in the siutation.  Ildi was so helpful at managing my pain.  She made sure that i ate.  She helped me take a bath.  She breathed with me when the pain was getting more and more intense.  She giuded my husband to help me as well.  I think one of the misconceptions is that doulas replace the husband and that was absolutely not our experience.  My husband was by my side the entire time as well.  At one point (towards the end) they both were knee deep in a bathtub helping me. :-)

Ildi also provided great information prior to the birth of our son (born September 2014) and conducted in home classes with my husband and I that were very valuable.  It opened up the conversation on a lot of topics that we hadn't discussed before (epsiotomies, delayed cord clamping, etc).  We found this time very important as well.

I would absolutely recommend Ildi as a doula and will definitely use her for our next baby!
