I was lucky to have 2 doulas during pregnancy. Melissa was awesome and she went over things you would have not even thought about during labor. I was unfortunate and had to be induced and was scared that I wouldn't be able to have my natural drug free birth as planned. Well, in the end I made it drug free YAY, and that was all thanks to her and jenelle. They helped with the contractions, which moments to do during contractions and all in all I think I had a pretty awesome labor. Thank you so much for all the support:)
