Tyshanna McCoy Bradley

Melody was simply amazing. She was not only there for me but my husband as well. She helped me keep with my birth plan the whole way through. She was a much needed support person and my husband and I can't imagine our daughter's birth without her. Our only regret is we didn't have her with us for our son's birth 2 years ago.
