Testimonial for Alexandra Blanchard, CD, CBC

Alexandra was the doula for the recent birth of our first child. When I think about all the things we did to prepare for this pregnancy/labor/delivery, the one thing that I know beyond a shadow of a doubt we did correctly was choosing Allie as our doula. When my husband and I first met her, we were struck by her knowledge and calm demeanor and felt that she would be a good counterbalance to our first time parent jitters and nervousness. Having a baby in the city is hard- at times I felt that there was such a lack of information and communication about so much of the process- and Allie entered our lives at the perfect time. She always told us she was just a text away- and she was! (and continues to be). Whether the question is big or small, she is super patient, responsive, and really puts us at ease. The prenatal sessions were super informative and really beat any class we could have taken.

Most importantly, her presence at the hospital with our delivery made all the difference. I felt like I had someone in my corner- as things were happening, she explained them thoroughly to my husband and me. I think most importantly, she was just such a calming presence in the delivery room, talking me through contractions, the epidural, and the actual delivery. Having her on one side and my husband on the other calmed me in a way I can't explain and really led to a pretty uneventful delivery, as those things go. I highly recommend Allie's serivces- she really was invaluable during my pregnancy and I don't have enough words to express how thankful for her presence I was and continue to be.
