Testimonial for Leah Garner

My husband and I decided to hire a doula for our second birth so that we would feel more confident in a natural labor after experiencing an induced stillbirth the year before. Leah seemed to work well with our personalities and was able and willing to listen to and support us in the fears and conflicting emotions that come with a pregnancy and birth after loss.Leah came to our house for a prenatal appointment with me and my husband where we got to know each other better and had an in depth run-through of the labor process and how she would support us. Even though Leah didn't have much time with us during labor because things moved pretty quickly, she was able to assess the situation and make the call to go to the hospital even though I hadn't been in labor for long. We made it in time to push shortly after getting to the hospital, and Leah worked smoothly with the doctor to encourage me in pushing. After my son was born, she helped guide me in trying to start breastfeeding. After we were all settled in at home, Leah came to check in on us. She continued to encourage me in breastfeeding and give advice. Overall, we were very satisfied with our experience with Leah and, though I'm happy for the short labor, it makes me a little sad that we didn't get to spend very much time together.
