Chelsea Hepburn

Having Melissa as my doula was one of the best choices when preparing for my birth. From the beginning I saw her true heart for birth mothers and to help them achieve the best birth they could. She has such a sweet, comforting countenance and humility which made me feel almost nurtured by her in our time spent together preparing for my upcoming birth. She has a wealth of knowledge on all things natural birth related as well as many ideas and resources that aided me greatly. Melissa was wonderful in giving me the confidence and belief that I could accomplish a natural birth and was with me every step of the way, from weeks of preparing to staying by my side for 24 hours plus once my labor began! I would absolutely recommend Melissa as your doula and can say her wisdom, encouragement, and passion for what she does will be such a blessing to you in your journey giving birth.

I had a wonderful experience with Melissa King as my doula. Prenatal visits were very comfortable and she was able to help me narrow down and focus on what I really wanted. As a doula myself, I was not the easiest client for her! But she gave me exactly what I wanted and I trusted her to be my brain and keep the environment and birthing spcae just as I wanted. She really made the effort to have my main focus be with my husband while she did all the behind the scenes work. She filled all those little spaces that I needed and gave my husband a break or two for lunch and phone calls. 

 

She is very knowledagble and was able to provide suggestions and physical support during labor which helped keep me focused and progressing. I'd recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a great doula. I appreicate all she did for me and my overall birth experience was wonderful. I'm thankful she was there to share it with us.
