Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa before I was even pregnant. My husband and I wanted to try to conceive and I was anxious to get the ball rolling. Melissa came highly recommended and I scheduled an appointment with her asap. I instantly knew Melissa was someone I could easily bond with and would enjoy her presence at my birth. I knew I wanted to try to have a natural birth and i felt Melissa would be someone that would help me achieve my goals. At my request Melissa introduced us to a midwife she thought I would fall in love with and connect with. At our first appointment together we all found out I was pregnant. It was such a great way to start our journey together as patient, midwife and doula team. We truly fell in love with Melissa and the midwife she highly recommended to us. We were all such a perfect fit.Over the 9 months Melissa kept in contact with me making sure I didn't have questions and attended any of my prenatal appointments I wanted. She was there when we found out we were having a baby boy.I wasn't sure how I would handle such a vulnerable situation with insecurities and all the things that come with natural birth, but when my labor took off, Melissa was so encouraging and helpful. Every insecurity or concern l had went out the window. She showed me techniques to manage my pain and included my husband by showing him how to help me too. It all ended up being more than I could have ever dreamed of. She was my strength and encouragement when I wanted to give up. If she ever stepped away I silently thought I wouldn't get through the next contraction without her help.Melissa helped me reach my delivery goals despite any of the bumps in the road we experienced. She helped make my husband and I's natural labor experience a beautiful, miraculous memory we'll never forget. I'll never go through another labor without Melissa present. She truly feels like part of the family now. Thanks to Melissa we also have some amazing birth pictures.
