Let me begin by saying that Lydia is the best doula EVER!!!! From start to finish, our interaction with her was excellent. I couldn't imagine our labor and delivery going any other way because she provided us with the tools and education we needed. Lydia wanted to get to know us and find out how we wanted our birthing experience to go from the first prenatal appointment. She posed probing questions and provided feedback when necessary. We had to complete assignments such as a child birthing education class, a birthing and postpartum template, and train for birth exercises throughout our time working together, all of which prepared us for birth.
Lydia became like family to me over time and meetings, and knowing she was by my side during labor and delivery gave me more confidence. My birthing experience was extremely calming, even during the most intense contractions. Lydia kept coaching and pushing me to keep moving while keeping the end goal in mind. Overall, with Lydia's assistance, I cannot imagine a more pleasant experience. My husband and I are still talking about how Lydia was a joy to work with and how much we valued her presence and knowledge.
If you're thinking about hiring Lydia, I hope this review helps you make your decision! She is fantastic, knowledgeable, experienced, and caring. Do yourself a favor and book her before it's too late!
Thank you so much Lydia for all your help!!!!
