Testimonial for Allison Petrides, CLD/CPD

I am forever grateful to Allison!

I found her later in my pregnancy, knowing that I wanted support for myself and my husband with the birth of our first child, and I am SO SO glad I found Allison! I had some struggles with doctors later in my pregnancy, and Allison was supportive, informative, and encouraged me to advocate for myself and find a doctor that worked best for me.

She met with us twice in home before I went into labor to help prepare us, was super clear and helpful in giving me exercises to help with pregnancy aches and pain relief. We felt really prepared going into labor with a plan on how to tackle it…and of course nothing went as planned.

Even though my birth preferences kind of went out the window, I still felt heard and encouraged the entire time and felt like I was able to make my own decisions about how my labor went as best as I could, and Allison was there for me and my husband every step of the way. I am forever grateful that she was there for us through a grueling 48 hours, and so thankful that she could be there for my husband when we were at our most vulnerable/scared.

She checked in and visited with us after delivery, and allowed us space to talk about the birth, which we both really needed and appreciated. I would choose Allison again in a heartbeat for any future babies of ours, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!! She is genuine, extremely well informed, thoughtful, and an angel to have by your side when you most need it!
