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

Meredith is simply incredible. Both my husband and I are so grateful she was present for the birth of our son. She has remarkable intuition, and was able to seamlessly support me, and also my husband, through 28 hours of labor that deviated completely from the natural, drug-free birth we wanted and had planned for. She just knew exactly what we needed, and what to do, at every moment, which was incredibly reassuring to us once we had to deviate from our original birth plan. The first half of my labor was drug-free and she expertly applied counter-pressure to lessen the pain of the contractions and help me cope with the pain. She moved me in and out of various positions on the hospital bed and atop the birthing ball to see what might work best. 12 hours into labor I decided I wanted an epidural and Meredith supported that choice without judgment. Finally, when it was time to push, it was Meredith’s voice that I listened for as she instructed me how to move my body and breathe in order to push efficiently and effectively. Ours was a long process with humorous moments when we laughed, and some tense moments when Meredith suggested she leave us alone for a few minutes so I could have a good cry. She was utterly amazing from beginning to end, and has continued to support us during the postpartum period with placenta encapsulation, weekly visits and a number of overnights with our son. Asking Meredith to be our doula was the best decision we made when creating our birth plan.
