Testimonial for Elaine Allen

Elaine was strongly recommended by my midwife Leslie early on in my pregnancy. From day one, she was so personable and friendly that she instantly made me feel comfortable. Her initial interview appointment was conducted so professionally, and it was obvious she was well prepared and very confident in her skills. Her knowledge of pregnancy, labor, delivery, breastfeeding, and newborn care is amazingly vast. She not only has gone through it personally 5 times, she also has a firm grasp on updated information on it all for any circumstances that may arise. I specifically was really impressed on her knowledge about spinning babies, as I was terrified I would have another OP delivery like my first. She had so many great tips throughout my pregnancy on how to avoid that. I was also having a lot of “crotch lightening” very early on and she took the time out to give me information on it and suggestions of how to deal with it. She was always available through email, text, or phone and was able to get back to me in a very timely manner. The last few weeks of my pregnancy she talked to me after each appointment. When I was nervous about baby positioning, she always had genuinely encouraging things to say to help calm my nerves and instill positivity back in to my mind. My labor ended up being very fast and my daughter was born at home, despite wanting to make it to the hospital. We called Elaine right away and she gave us the best advice ever- to call 911, which is just what we needed as she was born only 11 minutes later. Right after that initial call, she drove fast to our house and then straight to the hospital.  This was so comforting to see a familiar face after our traumatic ordeal. She followed up with me as the weeks went by and even came over to my house to play with my two-and-a-half-year-old as I took a much-needed nap. Throughout my whole pregnancy and beyond Elaine was a huge asset to us and we strongly recommend her as a doula!
