“Allison is the Best!!! Very sweet and caring. She did such an amazing job making us comfortable and she did not leave my side the entire 36 hours.
I met her in prenatal yoga and instantly felt like we have known each other for forever. I would highly recommend using her for an excellent doula experience. — with Nick Petrillo.”
