Client Testimonials for Melinda Cutliff

Brittany

Melinda was our doula for our third child. She met with us in advance to find out what we wanted and discuss how she could best assist us. She regularly checked in on us through the pregnancy and helped provide support through labor and delivery. She was so reassuring and willing to help in any way and it was great to have another advocate in our corner during the delivery.

Melinda attended the birth of my fourth child, which was my first homebirth.  She was fabulous!  She was able to reassure me of the natural rhythms and progression of labor, supported me through every contraction, made it easy for my husband to step away for the moments that he needed to, knowing I had the support I needed. 

If you are wondering what a doula might add to your birth experience, I'll tell you:  she will advocate for your needs and desires, she will support you physically and emotionally, and provide reassurance and encouragment as you labor.  

I am so glad that I had Melinda's support.  If I have another, I'll be calling her again.

I have the  pleasure of stating that I was Melinda's first client on her journey to becoming a Doula. When Melinda found out we were expecting baby number 5 and that we were planning a home birth she asked if she could be in attendance.  Melinda not only attended our midwifery appts she also checked on me throughout the remainder of my pregnancy (making sure I was eating and resting). She recommend her Chioprator to me which was a big help.  During my labor she played a important role by helping to keep me comfortable and offering awesome support to my husband myself and our children without overstepping. After baby was born she continued to check on us and help with meals. I would totally recommend her. HBA4C MOMMY 

We hope she can make it to 2HBA4C this summer

Melinda is wonderful! She came before my 4th child was born and helped me reduce stress and prepare myself for labor with hydration, rest, nutrition, and emotional support. When she arrived she asked me what would be of most help, listened carefully and followed through to exceed my expectations. I am very grateful for her thoughtfulness and assistance. I'd recommend her to anyone.

Melinda was a great support for me during my second pregnancy. I was high risk, so I was nervous, and she always comforted me. If I had a sonogram appointment when my husband was working, she came along with me for support, since at the anatomy scan they thought he had all these heart problems. It turns out he didn’t. She kept in contact with me on a daily basis which was nice. Sadly, she wasn’t able to attend the birth of my son, because I had an emergency c-section. But I would 100% recommend her to anybody.
