Testimonial for Leah Kohlstrom, CBD, CCBE. CLC

My biggest concern before hiring Leah was being able to advocate for myself.  As much as I thought my husband might be able to focus on my needs and the doctors simultaneously, it became clear as we discussed our birth plan how beneficial it would be to have a neutral person in the room.  Someone who had the experience and wisdom to help with any decisions that came our way and would give us the space and time to make them.  Hiring Leah removed the extra burden from my husband who then was able to focus his attention on myself and our daughter without feeling like he was dropping the ball.  Leahs presence was just what we needed.  Leah was a wonderful asset to have in the birth room.  She was calm and extremely professional, she immediately focused all of her attention on me and when she could would occasionally check in with my husband.  She coached me through my contractions and reminded me to breath and let them pass.  She spoke encouragement and tenderness, telling me how great I was doing and how I was strong enough to continue doing it.  She made sure I was as comfortable as I could be and checked in with me about it often.  I can’t speak highly enough about Leah and her sweet care of my family during this unique time.  Leah is great.  She is attentive and professional.  She really cares about her work and her clients, paying attention to the smallest details to make sure you have everything you need.  She is even willing to work with you about payment and is very realistic about it depending on your circumstances.  I really think it is a must to have a Doula in your delivery room and Leah is a wonderful one.  You will really love her!
