Testimonial for Lila Backenstose

It's difficult to distill my positive feelings about Lila into a few sentences. From our initial conversation, it was obvious Lila had a calming energy. More importantly, she clearly listened to my questions and perspectives. When we met her in person, I again felt she was thoughtful and a wonderful communicator. I was blessed with a pregnancy with few complications, but I am also a first-time mom and aware of my anxieties. Lila was always quick to respond to my questions with information, reassurance, and positive suggestions. During my last trimester, I wondered (obsessed?) about what exactly the birth would look like and what Lila's specific role would be. She reminded me she is intuitive and would respond to the many possibilities birth can present. I was still anxious, but we knew we had a teammate with more experience than we had. When the day of the birth began unexpectedly, Lila proved her worth many times over.  She helped make the process more calm, focused, and productive. She was able to respond and help us respond to variables we could not have predicted. In the end, I gave birth the way I hoped -- and we were introduced to our beautiful little girl quickly and with clear eyes because of Lila's support. I can not recommend her highly enough.  She will help you understand your priorities, respond to the teamwork of your partnership, and help establish both comfort and focus in an unpredictable process. We feel so lucky to have had her as a part of our birth story.
