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

As first time parents, we can’t imagine going through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period without Mary-Lou’s support. She was such a positive presence and a source of calm, comfort and kindness. Working with her equipped us with the tools we needed to approach this major life event with confidence. 
 
In all our prenatal meetings, she was a font of knowledge, answering our (many!) questions about labour and birth thoughtfully and in a way that helped us understand the “why” behind anything we were curious about. Discussions were thorough and never felt rushed. 
 
During labour and delivery Mary-Lou provided hands-on techniques for pain management and supported my partner to do the same. Her presence helped put us both at ease throughout this intense experience. When decision points arose, we were able to tap into knowledge from our prenatal meetings to help inform decision-making, so I felt empowered and confident about the decisions that we made throughout labour. 
 
After our baby was born, Mary-Lou was available by phone or text to answer questions we had about newborn care and consistently provided calm reassurance and helpful suggestions. When my partner returned to work, Mary-Lou’s postpartum services were invaluable for help putting in place routines and strategies to care for baby on my own. 
 
Mary-Lou often said to us that she has the best job in the world. From every interaction with her, it was clear that she truly loves what she does and cares deeply about her clients. We are so grateful that she was part of this experience with us.
