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

As a guy, I have figured out two life rules when it comes to helping your wife with this whole process after having been in the trenches:

1. YOU NEED A DOULA and 2. THAT DOULA SHOULD BE MEREDITH

I usually serve as my wife's living, breathing Google -- Siri with a good head of hair -- Alexa with an attitude.  I am usually the one with all the answers for her:

What time does 16 Handles close? (10 pm in Summer)  Do we have Dear Aunt Gertrude's email address? (gertiethegr8@yahoo.com)  How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? (112) I can help with all of these questions.  However, when it came to this process, I was COMPLETELY in the dark and worse -- there didn't seem to be a place to get the answers because everyone's experience is so specific and personal to them.  Is that twinge she just felt a contraction or revenge of the DanDan Noodles from last night -- I have no idea!  But, you know who does?  MEREDITH.  

Never was I more at ease about what my wife was about to go through than when we were with Meredith.  She was SO knowledgeable about all aspects of childbirth -- medical, practical, procedural, even spiritual (and trust me, I'm not into that stuff #incesnsemakesmeincensed) -- and she was invaluable in helping us figure out what our choices were and what options were available to us with each choice.  Meredith not only provides the best personal support I've ever experienced, but she also empowers you as a couple to take control of feeling great about the birth because you know you are ready and informed.

I can unequivocally say that there is absolutely NO chance you will regret your decision to work with Meredith.  And if my inspired prose above doesn't convince you, JUST LOOK AT ALL THOSE ACRONYMS AFTER HER NAME.  You could have a really solid round of Scrabble with just those.

In closing -- she's the best; just hire her.
