Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

My wife and I decided to meet a doula when one of our friend shared her experience of her doula. We were in week 38 and were expecting our first baby when we met Ildi and Mariah. At that time, we were not very sure if having a doula would be worth the money. Ildi came to us after assisting with a birth whole night and we were impressed in the first meeting with her knowledge and her energy. We felt that she would be of great help in helping my wife cope up with labor pain, so we decided to go with her as our doula. In the remaining journey 3 weeks to birth, Ildi gave us a number of reasons which makes us feel proud of our decision of having her as our doula.


Ildi and Mariah met us twice before the due date and educated us on birth and labor pain. They worked with us on understanding what pain coping techniques really worked well with my wife. Like every expecting parents we met, we also wanted to have a normal birth and avoid induction and pain medications as much as possible. Contrary to our desrire,in our regular checkup at 40.5 weeks, we were asked to go for induction on a short notice of a day. Ildi had educated us on how to handle these difficult situations and we decided to wait for natural labor pains. Ildi supported our decision and pointed us to resources which were helpful in going into labor naturally. Finally, the big day arrived the very next day and as expected, Ildi provided excellent support during the labor. With natural induction techniques and no pain medications, we welcomed our baby boy to this world.

Ater the birth, Ildi provided us excellent resources to deal with all the problems that we faced. We are very thankful to Ildi for all the help and would highly recommend her as a doula.
