Testimonial for Leah Kohlstrom, CBD, CCBE. CLC

When my husband and I found out we were pregnant I knew from the get-go that I wanted to hire a doula.  I found Leah and met with her shortly after and knew right away that she was who I wanted as our doula.  She was warm and welcoming and answered my many, many questions.  

From the beginning of my pregnancy, I had planned to have the most natural birth possible.  Toward the end of my pregnancy, however, I developed high blood pressure and gestational diabetes - meaning I had to be induced early, which I was very nervous about.  Leah was so helpful during this process, helping answer any questions I had after doctors' appointments, and was such a huge support person throughout the induction process, checking in with me regularly.  

My husband was definitely nervous about the birth of our daughter and felt he didn't know how to support me.  Leah helped him through these feelings and on the day of the birth helped my husband help me as much as possible.  They worked together as a team and it was exactly what I needed at the time. 

Although I had to be induced, with Leah's encouragement I still had as natural of a birth as possible, exactly how I had imagined things going once I came to terms with it all.  She was so encouraging, reminding me over and over that I was strong and that I could do this! 

After our baby girl was born we had some struggles with breastfeeding, I called Leah in a panic crying and telling her that my baby wasn't able to eat (she was having trouble latching).  She was able to calm me down and give me some tips, which helped tremendously! 

I would HIGHLY recommend Leah to anyone in search of a doula. She is amazing.
