Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Sam and Ildi. I come from a background in healthcare and work as a doctor in a large hospital, so I felt like I knew everything I needed to about the pregnancy and labor and delivery process, but having Sam by our side throughout the delivery and during the postpartum journey was still invaluable. My husband and I both found the prenatal visits we had incredibly helpful, when we learned ways to prepare for and cope during labor, how to change a diaper, how to burp a baby, and how to breastfeed. Additionally, Sam and Ildi provided us with extra online resources that helped me feel particularly prepared for breastfeeding after delivery. We were in the hospital for a prolonged labor and delivery process, and I largely credit Sam's knowledge and support with helping me avoid a cesarean section delivery. She was there throughout my labor, helping with position changes to support the baby descent and progress through the labor process, and her physical and emotional support during the delivery was amazing. At the beginning of my pregnancy, my husband was a little confused about my desire to hire a doula and skeptical about the extra cost, but by the time Sam left the hospital after our daughter was born, he said he did not know how anyone goes through the birthing process without having a doula, and he agreed that her presence was really essential. On top of all this, both Sam and Ildi are both easy to be around and easy to talk to, in addition to all of the knowledge they are able to provide you with. Like I said, I cannot say enough good things about them, and we highly recommend them for anyone looking for a doula team!
