Emma Clarke

I LOVE Melanie! She was super supportive, encouraging, and an all around bad-ass doula! I couldn't have made it through labor without her.  She is really knowledgeable and was great at teaching me and my husband to advocate for ourselves at the hospital we gave birth at.  I would recommend her to anyone.  She has a lot of experience and is one cool mama!
