Testimonial for Allison Petrides, CLD/CPD

Words cannot begin to describe how lucky I am to have found Aly… My baby boy was born on June 1st of 2022. I have no family in the state and navigating everything COVID while pregnant was challenging. So, I knew that having extra support during my pregnancy was going to be important. Aly was more supportive and informative than my own mother! She would answer my texts/questions any time or the day and every week checked in on me. She was so knowledgeable about what I would expect at each OBGYN appointment and provided extra prenatal education depending on where I was in my pregnancy. Meeting with Aly in person to prepare for how I would labor and give birth saved me - I felt so much more calm and empowered after meeting with her! I was able to navigate my contractions much more effectively (mentally and physically) along with her calming words. My birth was uncomplicated, quick, calm, and beautiful. I did not expect it to be like that, but know that Aly’s support helped tremendously.

Where Aly went even above and beyond was providing support even after the birth of my son. My baby boy is the most precious gift, but boy oh boy was my postpartum journey tough. It was really difficult for me to navigate life with a baby due to lack of family support, COVID, and struggles with my mental health. Aly was the person who led me to extra support for my baby and myself.  I truly do not know what I would have done without her.  My journey was not easy but Aly was with me every step of the way. I cannot recommend her enough…!
