Testimonial for Meredith Coronato, IBCLC, LCCE, CLC, NCS, PMA-CPT

Hiring Meredith for birth and postpartum doula support was easily the best decision that we made during my 40 weeks of pregnancy. She provided truly invaluable support, guidance, and recommendations leading up to my due date, making herself available for (LONG!) 33 and 36 week meetings, as well as for anything that I needed via text message.

When my birth ended in a quick, emergency c-section due to a knot in my daughter's cord, she said all the right things to make me feel like I hadn't "failed", something that no one else proved capable of. She went above and beyond after the birth, visiting us at the hospital to help with breastfeeding and to make sure we were doing okay. I am 3 months PP and my daughter and I have had an incredible and generally very easy BFing journey, something that my husband attributes to both of us attending the "School of Meredith".

Having Meredith in our home for the first 6 weeks after we arrived home was also an incredible experience. She helped us not only to get some invaluable sleep and continued to support our breastfeeding journey, but also helped suggest sleep schedule transitions, understand cues from our daughter, helped me troubleshoot various issues with pumping and oversupply, and made us feel confident that we were doing not only the best we could, but great. I never felt at all anxious or worried when I handed our daughter over for the night, probably because I knew she was being looked after someone who loved and cared for her just as much, and was likely infinitely more well-rested. 

Even once our PP services came to a close Meredith has continued to check in and make sure we are doing well, and I fully intend to use her incredible IBCLC-fueled wealth of knowledge over the next year as I continue breastfeeding. We truly cannot imagine having survived without Meredith, and can't imagine that there is a warmer, more caring, or more educated doula out there.
