Testimonial for Meredith Wilkinson

My husband and I worked with Meredith as our birth doula for our first pregnancy and delivery in December 2021. I am so delighted that we were able to work with her. We did 4 prenatal sessions and one postpartum visit in addition to my hospital labor and delivery. It seems like the number one defining quality that Meredith bases her practice on is meeting her clients where they are and supporting them in finding the path through labor and delivery that works for them. This was really important to me as I didn't want to feel pressured to labor in a certain way. For example, I wanted to try laboring without medical pain interventions and Meredith supported me and my husband in this plan, but she also supported me when I decided to have an epidural placed later on in labor. She also helped us think about different things that could come up during labor and feel emotionally prepared for the plan changing. Some of the activities we did in our prenatal sessions helped open up conversations between my husband and me that were helpful to have before the labor. I also really appreciate that Meredith's practice is intentional about being inclusive and trauma informed. Most of all, I felt like Meredith truly cared about us and our experience. She was proactive about checking in with me as my due date got closer and offered multiple times to talk through decisions like induction etc. She also made herself available when I was struggling postpartum and helped connect me with people who could help even though she wasn't technically working with us anymore. She also set up a Google folder for us with all the materials which I still reference in caring for my daughter. I would strongly recommend working with Meredith for anyone but especially for those who are looking to feel in control of their own process but supported and truly cared for along the way.
