Testimonial for Melissa Johnson VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON SUPPORT

Choosing a doula is something that mattered a great deal to both my husband and me. We struggled for years with infertility, and when we learned that we were expecting our daughter, making sure our birth was a joyful, positive celebration was very important to us. When we met with Melissa, we were immediately sure she was the right person to help us welcome our little miracle into the world. She is not only very experienced in birth, and knows the birth process inside and out, but she is passionate about the beauty and wonder that is inherent in bringing a baby into the world. We knew right away that Melissa would be a huge support for us, and that she understood how important it was to us to bring our daughter into the world in the right way. For Jon as a father, it was very important that we find a doula who would not take his place, but rather would show him what to do to best support me. He was looking for someone to coach him on how to coach me as I labored. For me as a mother, I wanted to find someone who would be able to support me, empower me, and of course show me how to labor in the most effective and peaceful manner. Melissa was a great fit for us both. Melissa always says that birth brings a baby into the world, but that it also makes a mother. I found this to be absolutly true. Many things changed over the course of my birth, and much of what I had "planned on" in our birth plan did not work out. Changes in plans are typically difficult for me, but Melissa encouraged me to trust my body, trust myself, and to be confident in my ability to make the right choices for me and my baby - also things that do not come naturally to me. With Melissa's support, I came out of the birth of my daughter and into motherhood with this sense of peace, strength, and confidence, which is something that I have carried forward with me and which will impact the way I parent my daughter. We are forever grateful to Melissa for all of her support.
