Testimonial for Lila Backenstose

Lila was absolutely essential to my support team with the birth of my second baby. My first birth experience was an unplanned traumatic C-section that left me and my husband with lots of frustration and fears. Going into our second birth, we knew we wanted to do everything we could to make it a better and different experience. We also knew that one of the best ways to do that was to have positive support and the power of knowledge/experience on our side. This led us to explore hiring a doula and ultimately to bringing Lila onto our birth team. Having meetings and correspondence with Lila during pregnancy made us feel extra prepared and helped us release our fears & frustrations.During labor Lila was a fantastic coach! She helped me stay calm and focused and in control. She also made sure I was staying hydrated, had cold compresses when I felt hot and she applied counter pressure in the trouble spots during the most difficult contractions. I believe it was because of Lila's support that I was able to make it through  9 hours of intense contractions without any interventions! 
If I were to have more children I would hire Lila again in a heartbeat!
