"There is a doula out there for every mom who wants one" I related with this so much and it was one of the reasons I decided to go with DONA for my training and eventually my certification! This is your birth! Not anyone else's. Especially those who feel the need to push their agendas or birth wishes that they did not fulfill, on to you. This is my promise to you, to support and stand by your choices 100%.

I cannot say enough good things about Allison. She is one of the most positive and comforting people I know. She was there every step of the way through my pregnancy and my birth, and allowed so much comfort in such a hectic time, and has been such an amazing emotional asset to all three of my babies births. We were incredibly lucky to have her and would chose her all over again if we decided to shoot for baby #4!
Allison Carfizzi was an amazing asset to my birth experience. Right away I felt so comfortable with her, her personality and openness were just what I was looking for in a doula. Allison helped to create a birth plan that was just what I wanted and helped to inform me of all of my choices, which was extremely empowering. She was always a call or text away in the weeks leading up to the birth if I needed anything, even just to say how badly I was ready to have the baby – she is so supportive I never felt like she wasn’t absolutely genuine, which is a rarity! The day of the birth she was there with me every step of the way, she made everyone so comfortable with her presence. This was one of the best investments we could have done for ourselves and our daughter. Allison knew just what to do to advocate our birth plan but also give us the flexibility and support to maintain control. I wish I would have had Allison at our previous births, but I will tell anyone considering a doula that they should do it and that Allison is purely amazing. I really can’t say enough good things, for knowing someone for such a short amount of time and going through such an intimate experience together, I couldn’t imagine anyone being better than her. She is knowledgeable, supportive, and someone that I look up to for her passion of the birth experience that each mother deserves to have.
