Testimonial for Lisa Viehouser

We had a wonderful experience with Lisa at the birth of our baby. She is a kind, calm, and knowledgeable person to have at your side during an emotional and challenging experience. 

We began meeting with Lisa in the second trimester. She helped connect us with resources that supported us with having the birthing experience that we wanted. This included books, some prenatal exercise videos, and classes. She met with us regularly leading up to the birth to check in with my husband and I about how we were feeling and what concerns or thoughts we had as we approached our due date.

During labor Lisa was proactive without being intrusive. She was very intuitive about stepping in when we needed her while making space for my husband to be a very involved birth partner. She helped me breath through contractions and offered massage and comforting touch. When my cervix was not dilating she offered suggestions for positions and activities I could do. When my birth preferences had to change due to the situation she helped me process the change and supported me in my decision. When it was time to push Lisa was there supporting me and giving positive encouragement. 

She supported us actively during a 26 hour labor. Beyond being there for me the birthing person, during those 26 hours she also helped my birth partner rest when there were opportunities for him to do so and made sure that he stayed fed and hydrated. When there was something unexpected that was painful for me she not only supported me but afterwards made space for my husband to process the experience of watching his person in pain. 

She followed up with me postpartum. She checked in with how I was feeling, how my recovery was going, my reflections on my birthing experience, my partner’s reflections on the experience, and made herself available as a resource to help us if we needed or wanted it.
