Testimonial for Leah Garner

We knew that we wanted a doula for the birth of our first child, and interviewed several before deciding to work with Leah. From the first moment, she projected calm and wisdom. Her pre-brith infromation sessions on comfort measures and managing the birth were fantastic and extremely helpful. Then, we worked with Leah for a 30+ hour labor at IU Arnett, where the entire midwife and mother-baby team knew her well. Having continual support during labor was extremely helpful. She was there with us from the beginning, offering advice on positions and movements to do. She helped us work through the possible decisions that come up for a birth experience, and when our plans broke down she helped us come to the safest and healthiest next decisions for mom and baby so that we could move past complications without needing surgery. When the labor went past 24 hours and she was exhausted, she brought in her back up, who helped us get to the end and a wonderful birth. Then, she visited us in the hospital and at home to work with us on breastfeeding and help us process the intense experience. She gave us so much helpful support and advice during the postpartum visit. She helped me feel more confident in my ability to breastfeed at a time when everything still feels so overwhelming. Every step of the way was wonderful, and we would be thrilled to work with her again.
