Alisha and Ryan Samuels

If you are thinking about getting a doula, or are on the fence about getting one, please give Melissa the opportunity. My labor experience was far beyond what I could have mentally prepared for, and she helped both my husband and I through a very long and difficult labor journey. She has such a sweet and strong soul and she saved mine during some of the hardest moments of my life. She is now a family friend that we are so thankful for!
