Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

Ildi is absolutely incredible- I highly recommend her! From the first moment we met, I felt completely comfortable and at ease in her presence. She exudes confidence and friendliness-- is easy to talk to, personable, knowledgeable, and makes you feel as though she will take care of you no matter what (and she does!). As first time parents, this was exactly what my husband and I needed and were looking for. The prenatal appointments with Ildi and her partner Mariah were very informative and helpful in preparing us for labor and the postpartum appointments were a huge help as well, making sure breastfeeding was getting established appropriately and providing invaluable resources for new parents. Our birth experience was nothing like what we had planned or hoped for, but Ildi was with us every step of the way! My early labor lasted over 24 hours and Ildi was very helpful via text and phone to support and encourage me. When I decided it was time I needed her help in person she was at my home within an hour and was incredible at offering guidance and supporting me through the the more difficult beginning part of active labor. At the hospital, my baby's heartrate kept dropping during contractions, which changed our birth plan significantly, but Ildi was calm and reassuring throughout everything, sharing her knowledge with us and greatly alleviating our stress. I eventually needed a c-section, and Ildi came into the surgery suite with my husband and I, again offering her calm reassurance and knowledge, which was a blessing as we were both exhausted and a little frightened! Ildi was by my side throughout everything and didn't leave until I was out of surgery, recovering, and everything had settled down... a total of about 24 hours with me! Throughout it all, Ildi was an advocate for me and my husband, using her knowledge and experience to help make our experience as enjoyable and memorable as possible. She is a true gem and was invaluable to us!
