My husband and I had a beautiful birth experience with the help of Melissa as our doula. When I first became pregnant, I had little idea of what a doula even was, but looking back, I now can’t imagine what my labor and delivery would have been like without Melissa present. From the prenatal visits, through the birth, and her checking in postpartum, my husband and I greatly benefited from her work. 

As a first time mom, I had many anxieties about labor and delivery. Melissa talked through each of these concerns during our prenatal visits, offering suggestions and asking questions to bring to light my true desires and intentions. Her calming presence and gentle smile reassured both my husband and I throughout the entire process. I felt more prepared knowing she would be our advocate during a very important time for us.  

In preparation for my labor, I think I most enjoyed her demonstrating various massages and maneuvers my husband or I could do to either ease pain, progress labor, or help me relax. We also appreciated her recommendation of a lactation consultant for a breastfeeding and labor support class that we found to be very beneficial. When I went into labor, her presence felt very natural and I loved knowing that both my husband and I were in the constant care of someone who knew what would work best for us based on our previous discussions. Even after I went with an epidural, Melissa continued to anticipate my needs, make me comfortable, and support my husband and I through labor. 

We have so many wonderful memories of the birth of our baby, and I know Melissa is to thank for many of them. My husband and I highly recommend Melissa to be your doula. Even if having a doula is something you’re still considering, it’d be worth it in our opinion to meet with her yourself and get a better idea of how she can add to your birth experience. We’re certainly glad we did!
