Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

Going into my first pregnancy, I was determined to have a natural birth and for that I knew I needed some extra help in addition to having my husband with me. I met Ildi before I realized I am pregnant. So it was a lucky coincidence. It was not a quiestion for me that I found our doula. She was really motivated, patient and supportive. Ildi is knowledgeable and professional. She provided a lot of useful information e.g. methods for coping, relaxing and spinning babies techniques and answered all of our questions thoughtfully.  

She helped us formulate our birth plan and made us feel as prepared as we could be for the birth. She called me many times (on top of our regular meetings) to inquire about my well being. Throughout our meetings I appreciated that, rather than telling us what we should do, she explained the pros and cons of various decisions.

I started having contractions at the night before our boy was born. I called Ildi (I know, it was really late), she called back and reassured me that it would likely still be a while before the baby arrived, encouraged me to get some rest if I could, and instructed me to call her back when the contractions got faster or more intense. The next morning my husband talked to her on the phone, and then she came over shortly before we left for the hospital. 

At the hospital she worked extremely well with the nurses and with my OB/GYN. She helped me understand what was going on, and when my doctor made a suggestion she explained why it was the good and safe decision to make. This made me feel that I was in control. She stayed with us after our baby boy arrived, and came to our apartment a few days later for a post-partum appointment. She helped me with breatsfeeding, bathing, everything!!!

So a word like a hundred, I am really happy about my birth experience and I am so thankful to Ildi for having been a part of the whole process!
