Testimonial for Leah Kohlstrom, CBD, CCBE. CLC

I contacted Leah somewhat late in my pregnancy and thank goodness I did.  She stepped right in and helped quell my fears.  Her calm demeanor was soothing and her confidence was reassuring.  One of the services she provides, which I think helps make her unique and valuable is that she doesn't take any other clients around your due date so there is a much better chance that she will be available for you on your special day.  Other doulas I talked to had back ups, but I didn't like that I was going to build a relationship with one doula and have someone else at my birth.

On the day of my daughter's birth, things moved quickly. We called her on our way to the hospital, but by the time she got there, I was already pushing! However, her presence was a great renewal of energy as I worked with my little one during birth.  She was supportive and encouraging, helping me navigate the 'right way' to push.  She stayed after the birth for several hours, helping with the baby, feeding me, and congratulating me.  She was just awesome.  Lastly, I had several postpartum complications and she kept checking in with me even though she didn't have to.  She clearly cared about me, my husband, and my little girl.  Honestly, she was such a blessing to have as part of my support team leading up to, on, and after the birth of our little girl.  We will definitely call on her again for #2!
