Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

My wife was expecting our fourth child and I was a little nervous about it because she had hopes to deliver this baby naturally. At 38 weeks our midwife was going to be out of town and it caused some anxiety for my wife. She was concerned that if she did go into labor during that time she would not have the support that she wanted in order to carry out her birthplan. Our midwife encouraged us to seek support of a doula and recommended Melissa to us. Within just a few days my wife was able to meet Melissa. She was happy, sincere, and genuine in wanting to help us achieve our goals for this birth. She came to our home and gave us pointers for comfort during labor; birth ball, pillows, massage, double hip squeeze. These things sounded simple enough, but made us wish we had someone there with our previous births to teach us these tools. Our kids loved her and she helped them understand things about their new baby too. Melissa gave me peace of mind; knowing that my wife had the extra support she needed at the end of her pregnancy. It was nice to know that Melissa was just a call away any time we had questions. When my wife’s labor had progressed and it was time to go to the hospital, Melissa was already there waiting for us when we arrived. My wife delivered our daughter less than an hour after checking in. I was impressed with the quiet rush that happened to get my wife to the delivery room. Melissa was calm, positive, and reassuring. She was intuitive about my wife’s needs at that stage of labor and she had one heck of a double hip squeeze! Our natural childbirth experience was amazing and empowering for us. Even after delivery, Melissa came to visit at the hospital, offer support for breastfeeding, and just check in on my wife to make sure that she feels supported during this transition at home. We are grateful that she was able to share in our experience. If you have the opportunity to work with Melissa – I strongly recommend you take it!
