This is a little long, because I can’t recommend this practice enough. I wanted a supportive model of care for my pregnancy, as I am not a huge fan of most traditional doctors who are more likely to tell you what you need or must do, where you go to appointments feeling like your time was wasted, and leave with more questions than answers. I had heard that midwifery might be a better option. I was extremely anxious during my first appointment, but Nuria Nelkin was absolutely reassuring and although I still was unsure about this new journey, she helped ease my fears, and really listened and talked through any concerns I had. She shared with me the information about the Centering Pregnancy program and I decided to try it. It proved to be a wonderful choice to join my birth month group facilitated by Colleen Chase Gardner, who I absolutely adore as well. I felt so empowered with my care participating in that option, my husband was able to participate from time to time, and it is invaluable to be surrounded by other couples going through the exact same process, who ask questions that I wouldn’t have thought to ask, and I have friends for life because of how we all bonded through the pregnancy and births of our children. I had quite a bit of monitoring at the end of my pregnancy and was able to get to know all of the midwives, Dr. Dunson-Allen and the rest of the staff at all three offices, and it has that family feeling to it by how welcoming everyone is. I felt comfortable with everyone.
When it came time to deliver, I was lucky enough to have Nuria as the midwife on duty that day, and when she arrived, I had been in labor for 24 hours, and was absolutely exhausted and felt a bit defeated. My birth plan wasn’t going the way that I planned for it to, and even in my extremely tired state when I wasn’t tolerating pain well, she calmed me down, provided a ton of encouragement, talked through things, supported me, kept my husband involved,and never made me feel like a decision I made wasn’t the right one. With her help, my baby arrived safely. 🙂 I feel so lucky to have found this practice.
Natalie and Anne were amazing during my delivery in August! Couldn’t have gotten thru labor without them! 😍Samia
They are truly the best of the best!Alyssa
As a 15 year patient, I can honestly say that there isn’t a more caring doctor out there than Dr. Dunson Allen. On behalf of my family (all have been her patients), we ❤️you Dr. Dunson-Allen!!Christina
You delivered my daughter Brianne in 2008. I am sure you remember me as I am a miracle. I still have a beautiful little girl who turned 9 years old Oct 9th. I remember after my brain hemorrhage I thanked you for my baby, I still thank you for my baby.Tammy
I’m forever grateful for you!!!! You listened and treated me with so much care. Removing my Essure when no one else would means so much to me and my health is so much better now.Victoria
Best doctor ever… Thank you for taking care of me during my pregnancy and after.Buffy
