Testimonial for Alexandra Blanchard, CD, CBC

I absolutely loved working with Allie! She is so professional, knowledgeable, and warm. During the prenatal visits she helped me confirm what I wanted to aim for with my birth plan and was completely nonjudgmental about my choices. She was able to cite the latest research best practices for labor, delivery, and the immediate postpartum period, which really impressed me since I’m big on evidence-based practices in general. She also taught us some great comfort techniques to use during labor which helped tremendously. She was very easy to get in touch with during my pregnancy to answer any questions I had and was so encouraging and supportive when I went past my due date.

When baby finally decided to arrive, Allie was able to help me advocate for what interventions I did and didn’t want. I was in labor for about 36 hours (22 of those hours were while I was in the hospital), and she was with us for easily 28 hours. That entire time she had amazing energy! She spent hours squeezing my hips during contractions and holding up my legs while I was pushing, rubbing my back when my husband needed a break, sneaking me some food to keep my energy up, and overall just cheering me on. I felt so empowered with Allie there. She also took great photos during the process so I could witness the moment when I met my daughter. Allie continues to check in with me weeks after the delivery to see how I’m doing, which has been really amazing since this newborn period can be rough and somewhat lonely.

I could probably go on and on about Allie, but the bottom line is that you will be in amazing hands with her. She’s young, but has such a strength and calm energy about her, you can tell that this is her passion. I definitely plan on hiring her again when we decide to have a second child.
