Testimonial for Leah Garner

I hired Leah to come to our house for a private 3 hour lesson after asking my midwife for recommendations on how to help me cope through the labor process. I have lots of fears related to blood work/needles/pain/medical stuff and I didn’t want labor to be as fearful and traumatic as it had been during my first 2 pregnancies.

Leah came at a convenient time for our family and listened to my concerns and based her class around what I wanted to know. She explained what happened during labor and gave me several positions to help during contractions. She was very patient with me; at first, I didn’t realize I was supposed to be taking notes! She gave me some ideas of how to concentrate and focus during contractions including breathing as well as ways to think and meditate during contractions. She gave me so many ideas that it seemed overwhelming at the time!

When labor came a couple of weeks later, I felt empowered and more positive as I went through it. I actually had my longest labor (25 hours) and yet I had so many different positions and techniques to try that I had a much better attitude throughout it. I can’t thank Leah enough for taking the time to meet with me. Leah‘s private class made the world of a difference! In my previous labor, I was just begging for the epidural and this time I felt more in cintros and held off longer before getting it. Leah has a gift for helping others and I am grateful for her!
