Testimonial for Melanie Smith

The support, knowledge, encouragement and modeling that Melanie gave throughout my pregnancy was so very valuable. I was able to have a brand new experience even though this was my third child. From the very beginning, Melanie was there to help me effectively deal with the difficult morning sickness symptoms. She offered me homeopathic remedies and her sweet support, that made such a positive difference. The wide array of information Melanie shared with me on the 9 month journey slowly expanded my view and perception of pregnancy and childbirth. I was able to see and appreciate the wonder of the natural process and eventually became more trusting of my body and its ability to handle the wild changes along the way. When I finally went into labor, I felt prepared, centered and very excited to deal with the birth of my baby. With Melanie there to encourage me to be patient and instill a confidence in me that I didn't think was possible, I was able to have my first natural birth experience, which was amazing (although incredibly intense as well!)

Since giving birth, Melanie has been so supportive and her loving, caring energy during this first month with my newborn has kept me feeling centered, capable and strong.

I highly recommend Melanie as a Doula!
