Testimonial for Lydia Robinson CD(DONA) IBCLC

My 1st birth I had an emergency Csection &traumatic birth. I knew I didn’t want to go through it again& wanted a VBAC. I was shut down by my dr TWICE about a VBAC. I was devastated/discouraged so I agreed to schedule a Repeat Cesarean.I just thought “my OB has my best interest at heart I should trust her &just opt for this surgery to make this ‘easier’ I continued appointments & complied until 1day I decided my mental health was more important& c section was terrifying to me because of the birth trauma I experienced. I’m SO THANKFUL because we found Lydia.. I got to her late in the game but she reassured me from the 1st moment we spoke that I am ALLOWED to have the birth I desire. We hired Lydia &began our journey with Birth Education. It was a lot of information to learn in a short period of time but it was VALUABLE& much needed. After completing all our courses by 38 weeks, we were prepared &armed w/ information to bring our daughter into this world in the same setting we were in with my 1st birth. Now all we had to do was wait for her arrival.
The BIRTH: Mike& I head to the hospital.Because I was unable to speak, Mike was my voice. We get to the room& the hustle and bustle happens.So many questions, so many “things that have to happen” but because we were educated, we could give healthy push back on what we wanted &what we did not want. Lydia arrived& I was so thankful &at ease to have her& Mike by my side.At 442am our daughter was born via successful VBAC!Remember I said I was shut down TWICE about having a VBAC &here I was in a Labor room with the birth I desired to begin with! We learned that we went into our 1st birth completely uneducated relying only on what the staff told us. This time we were prepared& could advocate for ourselves& our daughter. I highly recommend you hire Lydia! You will thank yourself later, trust me
