Testimonial for Alexandra Blanchard, CD, CBC

My husband and I booked Allie after meeting with two other doulas around the 20 week mark of my pregnancy. We connected with her immediately, and we appreciated her humor, her knowledge and expertise, and her patience. We liked that her package included classes to help us learn about not only the labor and delivery process, but also postpartum and newborn care as well. Though the classes are technically group classes, we never had anyone else in our sessions so they really became a place where we could get all our questions answered. She also had unlimited meetings we could schedule at any time, which was very helpful when we had questions or issues concerning our ob/gyn practice.

During the labor, which started very slowly for me, Allie was available on the phone whenever we needed. With her guidance, I labored at home all day before I was finally ready to go the hospital. Once we got to the hospital, everything changed as they often do, but Allie was able to be my staunch advocate and support person when faced with challenging PAs and nurses. Though my birth did not end up matching my plan, Allie was there to help me process the experience and come to terms with everything that happened. 

We also booked Allie for a postpartum session, which happened about two weeks after the birth of my daughter. We mostly just sat and talked, and she was able to show us in person some things we had questions or concerns about. I felt I was able to ask her questions I would have been nervous asking my doctor about, which was so helpful. All in all, my husband and I loved working with Allie and highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a doula!
