Testimonial for Meredith Coronato, IBCLC, LCCE, CLC, NCS, PMA-CPT

Our experience working with Meredith was extremely positive. I wanted to have a natural birth, and my husband and I came to feel that we would both need and want support from someone more experienced than us in order to manage and cope with the events of the labor. From the prenatal visits through labor and delivery and postpartum, Meredith was friendly, professional, accessible, and knowledgable. She was an amazing support to both of us during labor, helping me cope both mentally and physically with the extreme pain of contractions, overwhelming exhaustion, interfacing with the doctors and nurses, advocating on our behalf, helping us to avoid unwanted interventions, keeping me hydrated and off the fluid drip that would have kept me from moving and drinking fluids the way I wanted and needed to, reassuring my husband and giving him someone to talk to about what was happening and how he could best support me in the midst of the insanity and confusion that is labor. I really can't say enough positive things. Having Meredith as our doula was one of the best decisions we made - we both couldn't stop talking afterward about how we couldn't have carried through with the natural birth if she hadn't been there. Although my husband is amazing and extremely supportive, this was our first baby, I had terrible back labor the entire time, and ended up having to be admitted to a regular labor and delivery floor rather than the birthing center we had hoped for.  Had Meredith not been there I think we would have crumbled under the pressure of the situation itself and certain less supportive nursing staff and I would have ended up with an epidural that I really did not want. As mentioned my husb is wonderful, but having a third, objective person there to help me cope was exactly what I needed. It was also reassuring to know that if my doctor had not been on call during my labor we still would have had a consistent, familiar face on our team.
