Testimonial for Alyson Mancini CD(DONA), BA Birth/Newborn Photographer

We had a great experience with Alyson.  Our son came 6 weeks early and Alyson immediately provided support as soon as she got the news.  She was a calming influence and helped us organize our birth plan originally and then adjust it once the pregnancy became high-risk.  We found her knowledge, help, and support invaluable during a labor that had to be MD supported rather than midwife and she worked well as an intermideary to the staff, especially as labor progressed and my ability to advocate for myself diminished.  She and my husband worked as a natural team to help me reposition, give him tiny breaks, provide counterpressure and coach/reasure me when contractions became more intense.  Alyson was also very supportive, flexible, and responsive post-labor, providing support and information as we transitioned to the NICU and then home.  The photos and parting package were very touching as well.  Our experience with Alyson solidified our belief that a doula is an instrumental part of a positive labor experience and we wholeheartedly recommend her.
