Testimonial for Lydia Robinson CD(DONA) IBCLC

We found Lydia through the Evidence Based Birth website as a highly recommended doula in our area. I was around 30 week pregnant and knew we were going to have a hospital birth so Lydia jumped right in role playing the important conversations we were going to have at the hospital upon admission as well as critical questions we should be asking our provider now. She also created a realistic, but aggressive schedule to attend other classes that would prepare us mentally and physically for the birth we wanted and were so much more comprehensive than those provided by our hospital. Lydia’s experience as a certified labor & delivery nurse is invaluable, but her connections and reputation in the doula community is unmatched. She made sure we were well connected to all the resources for a holistic education and preparation on birth far beyond what our provider could give us. She even went the extra mile to send out reminders for these classes so we didn’t miss anything. Working with Lydia taught us that we had a much bigger voice to have the birthing experience we desired and empowered us to be the decision makers throughout the entire process.  Having Lydia in the room during labor was also a huge help to my husband and her presence reminded me of how much we prepared for this day and I had everything I needed to bring our baby into the world. It was also reassuring to have her there when making difficult decision to break my water when labor was stalling. We knew the risks from our education, but having her there to explain what the next intervention might look like if it was unsuccessful and if we had other options gave us clarity to make the best decision for us. Hiring Lydia as our doula was the best decision we made for our family as first time parents. She knows her stuff, she cared so well for us, and she worked hard but made sure we did too and the end result was the feeling of peace and empowerment walking into and out of birth.
