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

From the very first day we met Alyson, her nurturing personality stood out to us. Planning for an unmedicated birth with our second little one was something we knew we would need some assistance with, and we can’t be happier that we found this sweet soul! She took the time to ensure we discussed and documented the birth plan we dreamt of as well as educated us along the way. After realizing my contractions weren’t Braxton hicks. I contacted Alyson around 5 am to inform her and she was eagerly packing her bags to come help us labor at home until we were ready to go to the hospital. Unfortunately the contractions progressed quickly and we had to head to the hospital sooner than later, where she actually got there before us! Alyson was such a great advocate for us during labor and delivery, so much that I was able to focus my mind and body rather than build anxiety from all of the questions of the medical professionals. She used aromatherapy and even brought my favorite essential oil! She encouraged different positions and always made sure I was comfortable. We appreciated her sense of humor, too. Her counter pressure techniques during contractions were imperative and were something she was able to teach my partner. The two of them tag teamed comforting me so well. Alyson even stayed after the birth to make sure we had everything we needed in recovery. Throughout labor, she captured snapshots of every sweet moment and presented us with a beautiful photo album days after we got home and settled in. Not only did she come to check on us, she gifted us precious goodies for our new bundle of joy and the yummiest lactation cookies! Alyson was such a blessing and we could not have done this without her!!
