Melanie Shelton

My husband and I hired Haley as our doula because this was our first child and we felt we needed the extra guidance and support. Haley worked with us during three separate sessions before the birth, preparing us for the labor and delivery, postpartum and also drafted our birth plan. With all the conflicting information that is out there on pregnancy and beyond, it was nice to have someone we trusted providing us with information. She provided us with many resources and answered all the questions we had. She did a very good job at creating a relaxing atmosphere and making my husband feel included during the labor and delivery experience. Haley was very helpful throughout everything and never judgmental at all. A few notable things I remember from my labor & delivery were that she provided me with alternatives when I was still deciding if I wanted an epidural, and she constantly reassured me that the things I was feeling were normal. That greatly put mine and my husband's minds at ease. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my experience working with Haley and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Haley was such a joy to work with. She has a such a kind and mild spirit that babies and parents are naturally drawn to. I know i felt calm and happy when I worked with her. Her approach is intuitive so she always knows what the baby and mommy/daddy wants. I only worked with Haley briefly as she was part of an agency and was only scheduled a few tiems, but the times I worked with her I definitely enjoyed and would work with her again if an opportunity arose. I recommend her highly.

Haley is a compassionate and competent doula. She helped me achieve the natural birth with my second son that I have always wanted and wouldn't have been able to do without her. She stayed by my side the entire time encouraging me to keep going, and even came to visit us the next day to see how we were doing. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Haley is a very knowledgeable and competent doula. She was outstanding with my newborn twins and 2 year old son, and she seemed to genuinely enjoy them. She was also always cheerful, ready to help, and on time.

I really didn't know what to expect from a post partum doula when I first met Haley. I was under a tremendous amount of stress when preparing to welcome my second daughter into the world and I truly needed extra help and support. My husband struggled with some health issues in the final two weeks of my pregnancy and had surgery two days before my scheduled c-section - so I knew that in order to get the rest and care that I needed that I would need special help.  From her first visit when I arrived home from the hospital to the last visit after I had finally emerged from the haze of new motherhood, Haley was there for me. To say she was a support is an understatement. She helped my oldest daughter adjust to being an older sister, cooked delicious meals for us, listened to me through the ups and downs of the post partum period, made sure that I got the rest I needed, and enabled me to find time to recover and heal before returning to work without stressing about my list of "have-tos". Above all, she did it all with the love, warmth, and comfort of an old friend. I simply cannot thank her enough for helping to meet my family's needs these first few months after my baby's birth. She completely exceeded my expectations.

Haley has a loving, caring and giving nature. When I met her, I was already a two-kid mom, but there were still plenty things she could teach me: breastfeeding, baby food recipes, coping with fevers and stomach flus. She was there when I had mastitis, sharing natural remedies to help me get through the hard time. I feel comfortable to come to her. Knowing she will be helping, patiently, always calm me down and stop me from over-worrying.
As an international family, we are struggling with language. Haley never says difficult medical terms to make a parade of her abilities. She knows exactly what a mom needs. She also helps me fully understand doctor’s advices and make the right decisions.

I wish I could have known Haley when I had my babies. It’s such a bless to have her in my parenting life.

Haley was my doula for my 5th pregnancy, I've had 4 natural births with no doula but decided I needed one for this labor as I had a high risk pregnancy and needed extra support. I was a little hesitant to have a doula but Haley was Amazing! I immediantly felt comfortable with her and she was fantastic and very knowledgable during our labor, calming and reassuring during an unplanned csection for both myself and my husband (csection was because baby girl decided to try to be born shoulder first!) and helped with breastfeeding after my baby was born, she even managed to capture a few photos of baby's delivery. we are blessed to have had Haley as our doula!
