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

I am extremely grateful to Meredith for supporting me and my husband through our son's birth.  Despite having a high risk pregnancy and being induced (using pitocin, not part of our birth plan), with Meredith's guidance we were able to have the natural/drug-free birth we had hoped and planned for.  That alone probably tells you everything you need to know about Meredith's skill and compassion as a doula, but should you want more detail, keep reading!

In our initial meetings, Meredith spoke to us at length regarding our preferences and what tools/techniques we thought would work well for us (e.g., guided imagery, touch, sound, aromatherapy, accupressure, etc) and then expertly employed those techniques during my labor.  She is a great communicator and extremely intuitive - as just one example, she guided my husband in assisting throughout my labor and was able to sense moments where he wanted more or different involvement and addressed his needs accordingly while seemlessly continuing to support me.

Separate from her interaction with us, Meredith also expertly communicated with our OB and the nursing staff tending to us, clearly communicating our wishes while maintaining positive and productive relationships with everyone.  In particular, I was amazed with Meredith's partnering with our OB to move me through positions and techniques that helped me remain as comfortable as possible while also progressing my labor (as an aside, Meredith is also a pilates instructor, and her extensive knowledge of kinesiology and body mechanics is incredibly useful when it comes to labor!).  Our OB also loved working with her and, as a testament to her strength, asked for her contact information to pass along to other patients.

Meredith surpassed every expectation we had for our doula.  If you choose to work with her you will not be disappointed!
