Testimonial for Lila Backenstose

The journey of new parenthood is a life changing experience. Unfortunately my first birth experience was difficult to navigate and process, so I knew for my second pregnancy I wanted to hire a doula for support. I interviewed multiple doulas, and the instant I began speaking with Lila I knew we were meant to connect. Lila's energy is warm, caring, confident, and sympathetic. Most importantly she is a compassionate listener and encourages you to process your thoughts, fears and concerns. My husband and I met with Lila several times prior to birth to make plans that made us feel at ease. Lila has a special way of understanding your needs and providing insightful recommendations on how to work through the process of pregnancy and delivery. We kept in close contact as my due date approached and Lila kept my mindset positive and was constantly encouraging me to be my own advocate during discussions with my OB. Once I went into labor, Lila stayed in close contact and arrived at the hospital as soon as I felt I needed her. Active labor was an intense 24 hour process, and Lila never wavered. Lila provided guidance and support to my husband as well, offering to give him breaks and time to rest. I was able to consult with Lila during the entire labor to ensure that my wishes were heard and respected by the staff. Lila provided options, solutions and ways to keep me moving forward. Her love and compassion shined through which kept me calm and focused. My birth wishes all played out exactly how I imagined: an unmedicated VBAC! It was the most exhausting and raw experience but a 100% positive and loving one! Even the doctor and nurses commented on how vital Lila was during the entire birth experience. She is professional and worked extremely well with my care team. I truly believe Lila was made to be a doula - it is her true calling. Her support is worth all of the money in the world! Lila is forever a part of our family!
