"We were so grateful that Allie was with us for the birth of our son. She was very helpful in supporting us emotionally as the birthing process was changing and not going the way that we had hoped. She has a calming presence. We would recommend her to everyone."
"Being a first time mother, as most of you know, is terrifying. After my first trimester I knew I needed moral support from someone that was an outsider. Someone that stood by any decision I made. Allison respected every opinion I had, while letting me know the most important part was both my baby and I would be happy & healthy. I had full intention of going natural (no medication to manage pain) with my labor and delivery. Sure enough I got to the hospital, and when I was 6cm dilated I decided I wanted the epidural. Allison reminded me of my plan, but supported my decision completely. Through 48 hours she remained by my side comforting me with massages, double- hip squeezes, and sitting with me in the shower/bath. Allison is an amazing friend, and doula. I couldn’t ask for anything more… forever grateful for my experience with her!!! <3 much love to all the mamas reading this, I highly recommend this beautiful soul!!"
"Had a beautiful experience with Allie for the birth of my third child. She was extremely helpful in keeping me calm, relaxed and focused. I was able to use various techniques during labor that I otherwise wouldn't have tried. She is very intuitive and proactive. My husband benefited as much as I did! What a much different labor experience than my first two. Highly recommend her!!!"
My husband and I are soooo happy we hired Allison as our doula. From the first meeting, we knew we picked the right person to help with the birth of our son. She was very accommodating and flexible when scheduling our prenatal visits and came with so much information for us to review. Our son, Rees, was born March 11th and with the help of Allison we were able to follow our birth plan which was a natural child birth with us laboring at home as long as possible. Leading up to the day of labor Allison would check in to see if I was showing signs of labor. Once contractions had started she would follow up to see how I was managing them and their timing. She also let me know she was ready to go whenever I needed her. Allison met us at our house where I labored until contractions were ~3 min apart. During that time she talked us through pain management techniques/positions and gave us reassurance. When we got to the hospital I was 10cm dilated and Rees was born 30min later. Allison stayed until we were all settled and even assisted when it was time for Rees to breastfeed. I would highly recommend Allison as a doula. Her calm and caring nature made all the difference on our special day and my husband can not stop telling everyone how awesome she was!"
