Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

When I found out I was expecting my third child last winter I knew one of the first people I was going to tell was Melissa! She was my doula for my second baby and I knew I HAD to have her with me for this birth as well. My baby decided to come past my due date and at night just like her brother and sister. Melissa was always there when I needed her throughout my pregnancy and she was ready to go when I called her to let her know my water broke. She met me in triage and never left my side for more than a few mintues. She helped to comfort my husband who was uneasy about an unmedicated labor, and she put him to work. My active labor came on hard and fast and Melissa was right there to support me along the way. She was great about making sure I was emptying my bladder (something that is very important during labor), hydrating, changing positions, and using non-pharmacological methods of pain control (hypnosis, counter pressure, etc.) She also worked wonderfully with the Labor & Delivery staff and my OBGYN. My labor progressed smoothly thanks to Melissa's help and my baby was born in a little under and hour and a half from when it had started. I know that Melissa played an instrumental role in my quick and uncomplicated labor because with her by my side I was fully confident that I could handle the work of labor and that my baby would be born safely into this world. I know not all deliveries go as expected (I am a Labor & Delivery RN and IBCLC), but I am so thankful for Melissa's help with my picture perfect labor and delivery. If you are considering a doula, please, hire one! You will be in for even more of a treat if you hire Melissa!
