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

I am not sure where to even begin with our experience with Alyson. As most births, mine did not go according to plan. I went into labor over three weeks early without even meeting Alyson. I called her from the hospital bed in a panic. Right away she reassured me, dropped what she was doing and headed over. Just from our emails back and forth she knew exactly what I needed when she walked through the door. Alyson asked the medical professionals all the questions I didn’t even know to ask. She made sure that I was comfortable, safe, empowered and heard. Alyson was there to help guide me in making decisions. She came prepared with her knowledge and tools to help make my birth as comfortable as possible. She stayed with us through the night and never once left.  Not only did she take care of me, but she took care of my husband as well. Alyson helped teach and guide my husband to help with my labor. There was never a time that he didn’t feel included or that she was taking his “place”. Throughout labor she stayed in contact with my family and kept the updated. I cannot express enough how much having Alyson there meant to our family. After the birth, she came to check on my while I was still in the hospital. Letting me know that she was there for us, which she was as I texted her my questions the weeks after. Alyson also made an over hour drive to our house to do a postpartum check in. During this time, she supplied me with helpful lactation cookies and a gift that I will cherish forever, a photo album of our birth. There are truly not enough words to express how helpful and wonderful Alyson was to us during and after the birth of our boy. I am beyond blessed to have had Alyson as part of my birth team.
