Testimonial for Lydia Robinson CD(DONA) IBCLC

When I initially mentioned I wanted a doula, my husband's immediate response was "What's an Abdula, can't I just be the Abdula?" LOL, NO sir... I had already been vetting doula's and had stumbled upon one in particular that I just knew would be "THE ONE". I scheduled an initial consultation with her, we talked about my reasons for wanting a doula, fears and concerns that I had as a FTM (black mother), and how I envisioned my birth. The conversation lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. I was ready to lock her in, I just needed to get my husband on board. I scheduled another call for the three of us to connect. During the call, he was very straightforward and wanted to know the WHO, the WHAT, and more importantly the WHY... Lydia shared her story with us and why she's made it her passion to help families become educated and have the birth they not only desire but deserve. She completely blew my husband's expectations out of the water and it was a done deal. Lydia created a milestone schedule to help us throughout the pregnancy and birthing journey. She introduced us to a web of EVIDENCE BASED childbirth and breastfeeding education and community. She came to our home and helped us create a birthing plan that captured everything WE wanted. We did some very serious role playing along with comfort measure techniques. Having Lydia on our birthing team has given us a true sense of relief and empowerment. She's helped us develop our voice and become advocates for ourselves and the baby. She's coached my husband on being the protector of our birth space. She's remained one phone call/text away, very responsive in offering support from a clinical and realistic standpoint. The birthing world desperately needs more Lydia's and I pray that more women continue to invest in her support and care because it's unmatched.
