Testimonial for Ildi Sebestyén & Samantha Harris

We could not imagine our daughter's birth without Sam. My husband and I were initially unsure if we wanted to work with a doula, but Sam's support leading up to, during, and after the birth is now such an integral part of our family's story. 

She gave us the tools to feel prepared as first time parents. Meeting with her made this experience feel more approachable. She let us ask a ton of questions during each session and gave personalized advice to empower us to make informed choices about the birthing plan.

She was with us every step of the way during my 32 hour labor. She came to our house to help us navigate pain management and timing for admission to the hospital. Sam was knowledgeable and advocated with the doctors to make sure our birth plan was implemented the way we envisioned. Having someone who had spent time learning about us and was able to quickly build trust with our doctors was a game changer. After the birth, she stayed with us until we moved to Labor and Delivery to help us navigate that early stage. 

After our daughter arrived, Sam had several incredibly useful sessions. In the fog of early first time parenthood, Sam was a clear voice with actionable advice to help soothe and support our baby.  We are immensely grateful for the role Sam played in welcoming our daughter to the world.
