Testimonial for Lila Backenstose

Being a first time mom who knows so little about newborns, I was afraid of everything that was to come.  So my husband and I made the decision to get a doula.  The first meeting with Lila was casual and we knew immediately she was the doula for us.  I'm a huge introvert and Lila was and is super easy to talk to and get along with.

The first prenatal meeting was a lot of information but Lila stayed until all our questions were answered.  The second meeting was similar.  The meetings put me at ease because they were so in depth.  I was educated on baby positioning, labor, pain management during and before labor, breastfeeding and newborn care.  I felt a lot more at ease knowing all this information ahead of time.

Whenever I had any questions about any changes in pain or questions about how baby was moving, Lila was always there to answer questions.  I probably would have went into get checked a whole bunch of times if I didn't have Lila reassuring me that everything was normal.

During labor and delivery, she was a huge support and got me through one of the toughest things I've ever done.  When it was time for delivery, Lila reminded me what to expect and what to do.  Luckily, labor and delivery was relatively quick but it was still intimidating and my husband and I would have been lost.

I cannot recommend Lila enough to anyone looking to get a doula.  I originally was not going to get a doula but I'm so glad that I did.
