Testimonial for Lisa Viehouser

I cannot speak highly enough about Lisa! My husband and I had our first baby this May and working with Lisa made it such an incredible experience.

She provided several books, resources, and recommendations to help both my husband and I prepare for labor and delivery, infant care, and breastfeeding. It took out so much of the fear of the unknown. All of her recommendations for materials ended up being useful.

She met with us several times during pregnancy to talk through things like our birth plan, but also just generally how we were doing. It made us feel so cared for. She has a gentle wisdom that offers her knowledge and experience, but is also supportive of what we ultimately wanted for our birth experience. It was exactly what we needed.

During labor and delivery, Lisa was beyond amazing! She helped guide and support us to the peaceful labor experience we wanted, even in a hospital setting. She has a great rapport with nurses and midwives, which helped to advocate for me and communicate my needs, allowing me to stay “in the zone”. She honestly knew what I needed in the moment better than I did. She has the perfect balance of being there, without being overbearing. In the actual delivery, Lisa was right there in it, helping me into positions, coaching and encouraging me, and really getting me get over the finish line to our beautiful baby. Postpartum, Lisa visited us at home to check-in and see how we were all doing and adjusting – physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Overall, Lisa is a wonderful person and I am so grateful we got the opportunity to work with her. I genuinely cannot imagine my birth experience without her a part of it. Aside from her great experience and work for delivery, she also has a delightful personality which made every meeting with her so enjoyable! If you’re on the fence about a doula, do it! It made all the difference and Lisa will be a great addition to your care team.
