Testimonial for Lila Backenstose

The minute you meet Lila it is apparent that she is meant to be a Doula.  She is kind, nurturing, calm, and has a silent strength about her.  She is not pushy of her ideas (as I found some other potential Doulas to be).  Lila simply helped me think through what was really important to me and supported me the whole way through, even when those ideas changed!

My husband was initially reluctant about hiring a Doula but after meeting Lila and especially after our baby's delivery he now says it is the best money he has ever spent.  Thanks to Lila I was able to have a successful VBAC at a hospital that is not typically known to be 'VBAC friendly".  She was such a source of both strength and calm for me.  Her presence leading up to my baby's birth, during, and after were absolutely priceless.  Even the doctor and nurses were giving her hugs after delivery. Every time I think of my baby's birth, I think fondly of Lila and how much of it I owe to her.
