Testimonial for Lucy Paradiso, CD(DONA), CLC

I am a 41 year old first time mom and a single mother by choice so my support person in the delivery room was my mom who herself last gave birth 38 years ago. When I registered for the hospital they provided paperwork on the doula program they offered and I decided to go for it in order to provide extra support for me and my mom. I interviewed Lucy first and knew immediately she was the right fit for me. Even after interviewing the other available doulas, Lucy was still my first choice. She has extensive birth and mom experience as a mother of 6 as well as great professional experience being a former pharmacist and it showed in her knowledge and professionalism. Besides that she was kind, motivational, calming, responsive, and a voice of reason before and during my labor. Not to mention she has a great sense of humor and it's always helpful when someone can make you laugh when you might be feeling anxious and/or overwhelmed. 

During my labor she kept both me and my mom calm while she fed me ice chips in between pushes. She cheered me on and played music which brought some serenity to the labor & delivery room. She also explained to me what was going on during and after labor such as what medication I received and why they had to bring my son to the nursery as an extra precaution after he was born. After my son came back from the nursery, she stayed and helped me with skin to skin bonding and made me and amazing fruity drink which is exactly what my body needed. I highly recommend Lucy if you are looking for a birth doula who is knowledgeable as well as extremely kind and empathetic. I know my birth experience was improved because Lucy was in the room.
