Testimonial for Alison Rose Wonderland, BS, CPPD

What can I say? Alison was a wonderful! I already knew that she would be a great fit for our home birth during our brief phone interview when I heard how soothing her voice was, and how confident she sounded. When I finally met her in person, she had an incredibly warm, calming, and gentle spirit, which is what I knew I would need to help me get through labor! She also helped us to stay focused and positive about my birth during our prenatal visits, through various creative exercises!

When Alison arrived at our home the night my daughter was born, she stepped right into her role without  hesitation. Her presence was automatically calming, though I was almost out of transition and just about to hit pushing phase! She did a couple of "Double Hip Squeezes" and knew exactly where to place her hands to give me temporary, but instant relief!

Finally, I am proud to say that when my baby girl decided that it was time to come before my midwife could get there, Alison stepped up and caught her as I knelt to push her out! Though this wasn't the plan (or what doulas are expected to do) she did not hesitate or even make her fears about having to assist with the birth obvious to me at all! As a result, I had a fast, safe, and smooth birth, with her making sure that baby girl was okay before my midwife finally arrived. She truly did an amazing job! She was even kind enough to write my baby girl's birth story which I will treasure forever, and look forward to reading to her one day!

If you are looking for a doula who is positive, knowledgeable, and gentle, she is definitely the way to go!
