Testimonial for Lucy Paradiso, CD(DONA), CLC

I don't know where to begin execpt to say that I could not have gone through this pregnancy, birth, and immediate postpartum experience without Lucy. From our first phone call my partner and I felt confident and comfortable with Lucy's approach to the birthing process and that she would be someone who would listen to our concerns and wants while offering suggestions, support, and respecting our choices. Lucy was so knowledgeable (a mom, doula, and lactation consultant!) and encouraging in guiding us through our birth plan and prep and beyond. Besides our planned visits, Lucy and I emailed, texted, and chatted frequently leading up to my delivery, and she was such an amazing resource for any question I had and was always there to offer  practical and nonjudgmental advice. Though my birth plan had to be altered and I needed to be induced just past 38 weeks, Lucy talked me through it and was my greatest advocate. Her presence in the delivery room immediately changed the whole atmosphere and I felt a sense of control and energy to make it through my delivery. Having Lucy talk me through the steps of the process made me feel calm and reassured, and as someone with high anxiety, her calming presence was exactly what I needed. She also helped to direct my partner to feel more comfortable in his role while I was pushing. She stayed by my side the entire time and I looked to her to get me through each push. After our daughter was delivered, she stayed with us and assisted in the skin-to-skin golden hour, which was so special. The day after I was discharged from the hospital and struggling with breasetfeeding, Lucy came to my house and talked me through what to do. I went from feeling like I would never be successful, to being completely renewed once she left. I'm a month postpartum and successfully feeding my baby thanks to Lucy. Lucy is the embodiment of her work, heart and soul, and we were so very lucky to have had her there for our important day.
