Testimonial for Lila Backenstose

If you need someone in your court through this pregnancy and birth, Lila is your gal! I started my venture towards home birth with her and would have NEVER gotten the birth of my dreams without her on my side. She truly had my back and embraced my dream from the VERY start. My husband was 100% against home birth and she met with us to help me speak with him about it and just be my cheer leader, while helping me find some backing information to help me show him the decision I wanted to make was perfectly safe. Fast forward to today and my husband says he wouldn't have had it done any other way (and I can't agree more). 

Lila was not only there for me from the beginning but had the support I needed in some unique ways through pregnancy and birth. Being that I was having baby at home, there were things that needed to be combatted such as judgement from some doctors, breaking ties with care from the OBGYN I was with prior to my midwife, and figuring out how to get little man circumcised after he got here, and she was there every step of the way for me to just voice my frustration or bounce ideas off of when needed. The support I felt was every bit of what I needed. 

At the birth, she was my ROCK! I truly wouldn't have been able to survive this experience without the pressure she was happily (and I am sure exhaustingly) applying to my lower back and saying small pep talks to me gently just when I needed them. I knew home birth would be tough but I was honestly so relaxed knowing she was there to guide me and suggest what I would need to my hubs. Turned out she almost had to deliver me completely, my midwife arrived with 12 minutes to spare, but there was never a moment I saw panick on her face or felt anything less than confident that baby would be safe until midwife did show up (even if that was after he arrived). It was truly the experience of my dreams and without Lila on my side none of it would have been possible.
