Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

*MAMA BEWARE*

I hired Melissa in March (my due date was late Aug). She met with me and explained what all a doula does (she also offered to do maternity, birth and newborn photography as well as my placenta encapsulation) and I was very excited to have some extra support for a more natural birth with my second baby! I hadn't heard much from her aside from a few likes and comments on fb and I included her in group texts with my midwife. I contacted her late in my second trimester to do my maternity photos and attempted to schedule the session 3 different times. Each time she would come up with a reason (like not having enough gas in her car) why she couldn't make it after the session had been scheduled for weeks. As we neared my due date, I just got an awful feeling about her reliability and finally explained to her that based on her recent behaviors, I didn't have much faith that she would be available for my birth and that I would like a refund. She refused to give me even a partial refund even though it is not stated on her invoice that the money is non-refundable..

I was forced to spend the last few weeks of my pregnancy finding last minute photographers and figure out if she did or did not pay the placenta encapsulator. A friend donated her time to be my doula and I had a completely magical birth despite the situation.

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOULA!!
