Testimonial for Lucy Paradiso, CD(DONA), CLC

I don't have the words to express how grateful we are for Lucy!  

Pre-delivery: We got started with her later than most (at 30 weeks) and she provided really helpful insights, resources and links.  Doing a search online can be daunting because you get so many results and don't really know how to sort through it all, but every time I posed a question to Lucy she provided an answer but also more information from trusted sources from which I could learn more.  She also helped with birth planning and understanding options and when they could/should be considered.  It provided a lot of peace of mind to not only outline what we wanted but also understand alternatives and that they were okay too.  
Delivery:  Did not go as planned to say the least but Lucy was there every step of the way! We also had the benefit of understanding from our earlier discussions when we had to deviate from the plan repeatedly.  Lucy was also so good about reassuring my husband and looking out for him too, which meant a lot to me.  My plan was for an unmedicated vaginal birth and after multiple instances of options not progressing and/or not working my baby was delivered via c-section after nearly 30 hours.  At each point we had to make a decision on the next option Lucy was there to help us understand what to expect and pros/cons.  We are so thankful for Lucy and her caring and calming nature, I really don't know what we would have done without her!
