Leah is absolutely wonderful. She is warm and sweet and asks great questions. She got me through six more hours of hard, hard labor past when I was ready to throw in the towel. She has a great way with hospital nurses and doctors, helping me advocate around their monitoring rules in a very firm but kind manner, which I think was very effective. She was able to get me what I needed without offending or upsetting any of the hospital staff. She has been amazing about following up and checking in with me after the birth, spending several hours in person talking with me, and even brought us muffins! She really knows how to ask the right things to make you really think about your options and choices. 110% recommend Leah to anyone, but especially those considering a VBAC like I was. While ultimately I did have to have another c-section, I really felt like I was able to give it my all first, and was heard and respected in my choices, and Leah was a huge part of that. While the hospital didn't let her into the OR with us, she waited outside the whole time and was right there in recovery with me, helping me nurse for the first time.
