Testimonial for Leah Kohlstrom, CBD, CCBE. CLC

I knew I wanted to work with a doula for emotional support during my second birthing experience after facing a devestating loss with my first. I also knew, given the grief and emotions we were likely to encounter during the process, that it had to be the right person.  Leah was the perfect doula for me and i've since recommended her services to other pregnant friends.  She held our heartbraking story, our anxiety, and our excitment alongside us, never minimizing it or getting uncomfortable.  She asked us probing, curious questions that helped us think deeply about the experience before it happened and encouraged us find ways to honor my husband's culture and traditions.  Then, during labor, she listened, asked questions, provided support and explained what was happening before we even had to ask. She found ways to enage my husband and bring him into the experience and encouraged him to take care of himself during the long periods of waiting.  The labor and deliver nurses were great, but Leah made me feel like I had the strength of a community of women in the room who had my back. She held my spirit, my body, and my mind depending on what my labor demanded of me. She helped me tap into my strength and my courage.  While I could have brought my daughter into this world without a doula, it was a more powerful, more positive experience having had Leah there.
