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

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Meredith. I never thought I'd want a doula but being pregnant with my first child during a pandemic made me want as much support as I could get. My husband was initially worried about being a third wheel, but after the fact says he can't imagine going through the process without her. I wanted to try for an unmedicated birth but was open to the idea of an epidural if I hit my limit. Meredith was incredibly supportive of this from the get go. I found our prenatal visits super informative and the questions she asked really made me think about the best ways for me personally to manage the pain of labor. My contractions started close to midnight on my due date and progressed much quicker than we were expecting. Meredith met us at the hospital at the perfect time - just as I was having a major contraction in triage. She jumped right in and provided guidance to my husband so the two of them could help me through it. I hit a wall a little more than halfway through my 18 hour labor and somehow Meredith was able to give me the perfect quick pep talk to help me stick to my plan of having an unmedicated birth. She was invaluable in helping us navigate the quick decisions that needed to be made during labor and worked seamlessly with the nurses to help get the baby into the right position. After the baby was born she gave us plenty of space and privacy but was also able to help with the first latch. She was available via text message in the week following the birth for my many questions and even provided recommendations for an oral surgeon to evaluate my son's tongue tie. In short: Meredith was warm, funny, attentive, supportive. I cannot imagine my labor without her and cannot recommend her highly enough.
