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

Meredith was actually recommended by my OB when I explained that I wanted to do an unmedicated birth. It was important to me to have someone that would be on the same page as me, but would also strongly defer to my OB on all things medical. We met with Meredith and immediately loved her. She is super warm and helped us navigate all the questions we had. We had a couple of prenatal appointments where she showed us some pain management techniques. She also provided a ton of helpful resources via text and email - not only related to labor, but also guidance for us as a couple heading into parenthood. Additionally, she explained that in the event that I had to have a c-section, our investment would go toward her postpartum doula services.

At 38 weeks - my baby had flipped breach, I was showing signs of preeclampsia, and was headed in for a c-section. Meredith was checking in regularly and offered to come to the hospital to help with lactation, but unfortunately the hospital Covid policy wouldn't allow. Instead, we planned to have her come stay overnight with us once we were home.

Meredith arrived around 9pm and immediately helped to fix my latch. She had provided some breastfeeding resources to me via text, but having her manually guide me through the process was super helpful. She stayed the night in the bedroom with me and the baby, giving my husband a bit of a break, and helped out with everything from diaper changes, soothing, and stimulating milk production. She was so incredibly helpful with her guidance and tips and just general support and encouragement.

Previous to her visit, I wasn't sure if we would need her services in the event of a c-section. Now, I can't imagine that we would be where we are at without her help! I'm hoping that we will be able to use her for our next birth, and if it's another c-section, we will absolutely have her come for a postpartum visit to help get us off to a great start.
