Testimonial for Leah Garner

Leah is the consumate professional.  She is knowledgeable about many facets of pregnancy and childbirth.  I especially appreciate that she agreed to work with us even though we live over an hour away from her.  Leah came to visit a couple of weeks before I went into labor (I went into labor 3 weeks early), and gave me a lot of information about my options for child delivery.  She also helped me create a birth plan.  She joined me for my birth and was indispensible in terms of her knowledge of how to push and what positions I should be in to facilitate a vaginal birth.  After three hours of pushing, it became evident that I would need to go forward with a cesarian section.  Leah helped me make that decision, and also helped me make peace with that decision.  She took pictures of me and the baby shortly after the birth and created a detailed narrative of my birth story.  She also helped us learn more about getting the baby to latch and other breastfeeding-related topics.  After we brought baby Rose home, Leah came to visit and we discussed post-partum issues such as post-partum depression and PURPLE crying (the new way of thinking about colic).  

I would recommend Leah; she is a font of knowledge and her qualifications are truly impressive.  She made my birth easier than it would have been had we not retained her.  We appreciate everything she did for us before, during, and after our labor and delivery.
