Testimonial for Alexandra Blanchard, CD, CBC

Allie was an absolute lifesaver. She is supportive of all birth plans, even ones that change at the last minute and is so so incredibly knowledgeable. I went in attempting an unmedicated birth and she worked with me on coping and all of that. After 12 hours of labor at home and 5 hours in triage with almost no progress and zero sleep, I knew the only way through was with an epidural (and a nap). Allie was able to pivot on a dime and was able to explain exactly what we should expect as well as ways to rest with the epidural to encourage progress. She was critical during the active labor phase (7-10 cm), helping me get through the pressure of each contraction and helped my partner know what to do to be supportive. He was able to follow her lead and they were both exactly what I needed them to be. 3 hrs later it was time to push and Allie worked with the nurses and doctors to suggest positions that again would help move things along. Once the baby was born she helped with the first latch and even brought me snacks after an incredible exhausting 36 hours!
