Testimonial for Alyson Mancini CD(DONA), BA Birth/Newborn Photographer

Alyson is wonderful and I highly recommend her as a labor doula!
She has a very natural gift of helping women through labor. She's kind, empathetic, intelligent and responsible.
I gave birth in April 2014. Alyson met with me and my husband before I went into labor to provide labor prep. She was also available by phone and email, to answer questions and provide support. She gave us educational materials specific to our needs. I was pretty overwhelmed the couple of weeks prior to my labor and called Alyson a few times to chat. She was so supportive and insightful and helped me to regain a sense of empowerment.
During my labor she was truly awesome. I had an intense portion of labor and Alyson was a steady, calm yet powerful presence as she supported me through every contraction, hour after hour. She continually helped me to tap into my own inner power and intuition, she helped me with positioning, she encouraged me, she rubbed my back and brought me water, she helped support my husband, she continued to remind me of my birth plan and helped me think through different medical options during my labor, etc.
Bottom line, she played a significant part in making my labor be the very positive experience I remember it to be. Without her, I expect my labor would have been overwhelming. If we have another child I am most definitely asking Alyson to be my birth doula again!
Good luck & enjoy the experience!
