Testimonial for Lydia-Carlie Tilus

I cannot recommend Lydia enough as both a doula and a massage therapist. Not only did she support with a lot of information and planning before my birth (including a very succinct and organized birth plan) but she was also unshakably there for me as needed during a 52-hour labor with two surgeries directly following the birth. She was a support not only to me but to my husband during an incredibly scary and stressful time (especially in the midst of COVID). I did not expect her to still be there when I came back from surgery but she had remained there with my baby boy and husband and had helped secure donated breast milk for my baby boy while I was in the OR.
She has an amazing ability to know what a person needs to hear or feel during the birthing process. Her ability to massage and touch during the birth process allowed me to remain without an epidural for a large portion of my induction. She provides a comforting and calm presence that as a highly anxious person I desperately needed. She also had a steady and positive way of not letting me give up so that I could reach my birth goal. During the pushing phase of my labor, hers was the only voice I wanted to hear.
Lydia is a super kind, respectful, helpful, and nurturing doula and person and I think anyone would be very lucky to have her. She also loves children and makes an excellent post partum doula. I would hire her again for any other births I may have in the future
