Testimonial for Allison Petrides, CLD/CPD

Aly is truly such a special human and you can tell she was meant to do this type of work - and hiring Aly was the best decision we made for our pregnancy journey. I only wish I found her earlier on!!!

 


Before going into labor. Aly met with us once in home to help prepare us. As first time parents we needed help understanding what we were about to experience. She walked us through all the scenarios that may come up and was incredibly helpful with guidance and pain relief techniques. When she left, we both felt really prepared going into labor with a “loose” plan on what we envisioned labor being like, while also knowing that you can’t truly know what you’re going to do until you’re in the thick of it.

 


I went through a few days of prodromal labor leading up to my daughter being born and I was so thankful for Aly who was available via text every step of the way. She gave me advice to try and progress the labor, kept us calm … and we were so thankful for her guidance every step of the way.

 


While at the hospital, things progressed very quickly and Aly made it just in time to push. It was a difficult three hours of pushing, but again Aly kept me calm with beautiful visualization techniques and also helping to guide my husband on how to support me and keep me comfortable. We didn’t originally have a postpartum package with Aly, but in the days after I developed bad engorgement and a clogged duct. Aly came over to help me with latching and how to work my pump and I 100% believe I would’ve given up on breastfeeding if it weren’t for her. If you’re thinking about hiring Aly, I would choose her over and over again. My husband and I are so happy we found her and can’t recommend her enough.  Thank you Aly!
