My baby was in the NICU for 4 weeks due to being premature. I was having some issues breastfeeding and needed support once he got home. It was recommended that I contact Peace and Serenity Partners in Parenting LLC.  Melissa messaged me right away she immediately started a conversation about what was happening. We were able to schedule a meeting right away. Melissa is so wonderful! She was so friendly, positive, knowledgeable and willing to work with me. She answered all my questions and helped me with my babys latch. I would recommend Melissa to everyone!

My husband and I hired Melissa to be our birth doula for our first child last year (Sep 2018). We hired her during our third trimester (wish it would have been sooner) but still we were able to fit in a couple prenatal visits with her to go over our preferences for birth. We had planned hospital birth at Cary Wake Med. Melissa was amazing and was a HUGE factor in me having the birth experience I did, even with an induction. My husband never stops recommending doula to everyone we encounter because of the care and attention Melissa gave us. I couldn't recommend her enough. I still keep in contact with her and ask her way too many questions, to which she always responds!

The wonderful team at Peace and Serenity are there to help you navigate through the journey of conception through postpartum. They are a group of educated, knowledgeable, and capable humans who will ease any worry one might have while starting a family or giving birth. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time or sixth time going through this process they are here to help.
My husband and I just had our fourth child and Melissa had such a hugely positive impact on our home birth experience I couldn’t imagine having anyone else at future births. She is calm, educated, capable, and most importantly affective with her training to make labor and delivery the smoothest and most positive experience it can be. I would highly recommend Melissa, or any one of the doulas in her team, to be there for you too. Anyone would be so fortunate to work with them, I know my family is!

I reached out to Melissa pretty late in my pregnancy. I was feeling anxious about my birth plan and scared of what was coming my way. My husband and I met Melissa for coffee one night and left feeling encouraged and secure in our plans. She made sure both of us were supported throughout my birth experience, first meeting is at home and coming to the hospital with us. She was full of comforting words, helpful recommendations, and when things started to get scary she jumped into action. After several contractions with no progress, my baby was stuck on my pelvis and her vitals has begun to drop with each contraction. Melissa recognized what was happening and moved the bed and had me change positions and then out came my beautiful baby girl. She stayed to help with the first few latches and when we were ready she headed home. She has been such a great resource since the birth. I really feel like I found a friend in my doula and have so much gratitude for helping me have the birth experience I dreamed of. I will continue to recommend her services to anyone and everyone I know!
