Testimonial for Mary-Lou Crossley, CD/PCD(DONA)

Mary-Lou is a fantastic human being. When my husband and I met her it was instantly clear that she was a perfect fit to have with us on our pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding journey.

Mary-Lou is extremely detailed with every part of the experience. She takes the time to find out what your perspectives and hopes are and then provides a comprehensive education which prioritizes your plan, but also goes over all possibilities and important items. Additionally, Mary-Lou ensured that my husband was very included and educated as well.

During our birth experience there were many things that were not a part of my original birth plan that ended up happening. Because of Mary-Lou’s comprehensive education, as well as her support, I was able to make the best informed decisions. Mary-Lou was a huge part of making active labour and pushing an empowering experience, rather than a potentially scary one. Additionally, instead of my husband being distracted and panicked by the need to document every moment, Mary-Lou took many pictures (live pictures!) which ensured that the birth of our child was documented forever, while also ensuring that my husband was able to be fully present.

Mary-Lou’s breastfeeding education is incredible. Breastfeeding can be extremely intimidating, but Mary-Lou completely removed those feelings. Her support before and after birth made me feel confident in breastfeeding my baby. She also helped me advocate for my baby with the healthcare team when we suspected that a possible tongue tie was impacting his ability to feed (he did end up having a tongue tie and we were fortunately able to manage it right away).

I am so happy that we engaged Mary-Lou’s services for our pregnancy and birth journey. I would absolutely hire her again in the future, and have already recommended her to friends who are looking to expand their family next year.
