Testimonial for Allison Petrides, CLD/CPD

I knew once I found out I was pregnant with my second and trying for a VBAC I needed a doula for the support I lacked the first time. I am so very grateful I found Alison! She is absolutely amazing. Leading up to my birth she checked in with me regularly and on more than one occasion talked me through my anxieties or concerns. The night I went into labor she responded immediately and was in constant contact with me and my husband before meeting us at the hospital. I could not imagine my labor without her. She provided physical and emotional support at every stage. She was a warm and peaceful presence in the room and I felt she was 100% on my team. After 3 hours of pushing, I did have to have a C section. It was an emotional decision for me and Alison was there through it all. During this postpartum period she has continued to be an incredible source of support by checking in on me and providing resources when needed. Through everything- pregnancy, labor, delivery, postpartum- I have felt undeniably she has been in my corner every step of the way. Truly look no further if you would like a doula for your birth!
