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

Meredith was a wonderful labor doula. Before labor, Meredith was informative and helped us prepare as best we could for delivery. We had two prenatal visits and also exchanged texts and emails in which she shared helpful resources and showed us some hands-on preparation (e.g., exercises to get baby into optimal position). When we went into labor, Meredith was calm and reassuring presence. When things were unfamiliar or scary (and as first-time parents there were lots of unfamiliar and scary moments), Meredith helped us understand what was happening. For instance, when a complication arose during delivery, she talked us through what was happening and prepared us for the various things that might happen next. It was during those moments we were especially grateful to have Meredith in the delivery room.

We also really appreciated that Meredith was there at the moment of delivery because she took a handful of pictures -- she captured the look on our faces when my husband and I met our son, and having those images is something we'll always treasure.

Meredith was also a tremendous resource to us in the first few weeks home from the hospital. We had some trouble with breastfeeding at first. We hadn't scheduled our postpartum visit yet, and so I texted Meredith in the middle of our first night home to see whether she could help. She came over that very same afternoon and helped us troubleshoot our breastfeeding issues. She followed up over the next few weeks via email and text to make sure we were still doing well.

All in all, we were so lucky to find Meredith and to have her as our doula!
