Testimonial for Lila Backenstose

I truly believe every woman should have a doula for the birth of her child, and I am so glad I found Lila to support me when my second child was born in February 2018. Lila felt like a trusted friend from the beginning, always available to answer questions and refer me to valuable resources online and in the community. She got to know me and my husband and learned all about our experience with the birth of our first child, which formed a lot of our feelings about how we wanted our second birth to go. No matter the question or concern, she was able to relate to it with her own experiences and those of the women she has helped. She made me feel much more comfortable about the upcoming labor and delivery. Knowing Lila would be with us, I felt empowered to have a natural, unmedicated birth, as I did with my first.

Contractions started and labor progressed very quickly, but Lila made herself available at the drop of a hat. Given the speed of the delivery, there was a lot of activity in our hospital room. Nurses and staff were asking questions and making requests to prepare for the imminent birth, but Lila was a constant calming presence who was solely focused on my and my husband's needs. She helped me focus and breathe through each contraction in an otherwise hectic environment. She held me up and encouraged me when it was time to push, and before I knew it we had a beautiful baby boy. I couldn't imagine the experience without her!
