Testimonial for Leah Garner

My husband and I were expecting our first child in March, 2023. We chose to go with a midwife and birthing center and thought it would be beneficial to have the extra support of a doula during labor. Leah was the doula that we chose for my labor and I would definitely recommend her to others. 

 Leah has a very calm and gentle personality which fit very well with the personalities of myself and my husband. She was able to recommend good resources during pregnancy to help me prepare for labor. 

My labor itself was very fast (5 hours) and went very smoothly so Leah did not even need to use any of the tools she brought with her such as the rebozo scarf.  That said, I had much more difficulty with nursing (we found out later that it was due my son having a tongue and lip tie so he couldn't move his mouth properly to nurse) and Leah was a wonderful source of help and encouragement during that difficult and emotional time. For me, one of the most valuable skills was Leah being able to refer me to other experts such as a lactation consultant or a dentist who specializes in tongue/lip ties when we suspected that our son had one.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with Leah and if you are looking for a doula, I would definitely recommend her.
