Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

For the fellas.....

This is my experience with a doula from beginning to end in a few sentences.

At first I thought it was the dumbest idea I'd ever heard.  Why would I pay for an extra body to get in the way during delivery.  Then I spoke with my brother.  He hired Melissaa.  He kindly convinced my wife that Melissa was necessary.  So like any guy that doesn't want to fight with a pregnant woman, I was a gentleman and agreed.  We met her at the Dr.'s office.  She was there when we found out that my wife was pregnant.  I thought that was pretty cool but it's very  uncommon for that to happen so don't get your hopes up.  Then, thoughout the next 9 months we got to know her and I got to know what a doula does.  She met with us and showed us some pretty cool pain reducing places I could push on to comfort my wife.  There's a lot more to it but she made me excited to be able to comfort Sarah in a way I didn't think was possible.  Then it was time for our son to come.  She was in labor.  I was a nervous and tired mess.  Melissa helped me to relax and took on my role as the physical comforter so I could become the emotional comforter.  I was able to hold her hand and look her in the eyes.  I was able watch what Melissa did and saw that it was reducing the pain.  I don't know about you, but seeing my wife in pain made me want to punch someone so they'd hurry up and make it stop.  Melissa's presence calmed Sarah.  It calmed me.  Because of our doula Melissa I was able to catch my son.  Not help.  Catch.  All the way.  If we have more children we will have a doula no questions asked.  If you want a man's true, real and entire experience shoot me an email.  I would love to tell you in full detail how amazing Melissa is.  paulcatalino@gmail.com
